Horsing Around

The first wave of September magazines are out but I’m still enjoying the August 2010 issue of Vogue and this chic spread of Raquel Zimmermann and a horse named Ollie.  I can’t even imagine what the tourists on Sixth Avenue thought when they saw them walking down the street.  I’m also swooning over the fall fashions. While I probably won’t be wearing a cape this fall, I will definitely be buying that Adam tie neck blouse!  Bon weekend!

    I remember my YSL silk tie neck blouses from the 1980s. I should have kept them….and my horses too!

    Raquel is gorgeous– she really epitomizes that fabulous See by Chloe 70’s inspired look so well, with all of those camel colors– thank you for sharing!

    I loved this shoot too! 1. Because I love horses! 2. Because this is right along my path in C.P. where I run and 3. Because I’m obsessed with capes!!

    The only issue with wearing a cape though, is what to do you with your purse? They just don’t look right on your shoulder under the cape, and they can’t fit over it, and carrying a large purse (which is what you need around the city) with your hand can be a pain in the butt. I noticed this shoot didn’t offer a solution to this problem. They just included a more beautiful accessory, Ollie the Andalusian (I’m guessing).

    I love that black and white striped cape. I’d wear it, especially on a trip. Susan in Grand Rapids
