Fun Fashion From The Farm
We have a special feature in this issue of our newsletter for all you fashionistas out
there. We wanted to share a few photos with you of the high fashion worn during the winter by our faithful volunteers. Brutal cold, relentless snow and ice has given everyone poetic license to create stunning, one of a kind, haute couture ensembles....perfect for amusing our horses and the other volunteers.
Our volunteer, Joyce Anderson, has a definite flair for f...ashion. Photos taken by Connie Bush show Ms. Anderson wearing the latest in hobo fatigue patch overalls. The color is a very versatile butterscotch toffee canvas with complimenting patches. Topping her hobo fatigue overalls is an arctic hooded tunic in dark chocolate. You will see more of this stunning ensemble on the runways of Milan and Paris in the future.
For warmth, Joyce is wearing an ebony faux fur Elmer Fudd trapper hat. Paired with the hat is a removable face and neck gator. This accessory adds a little touch of mystery and intrigue to the ensemble. The horses just love trying to guess who is bringing them hay and grain.
Footwear is very important at the farm. Our model is wearing 60 below zero, all terrain muck boots in a bold deep charcoal. To accent the boots she has accessorized with industrial themed yak tracks. A sure bet for navigating icy paddocks.
Pictured with Joyce is volunteer, Dan Milliman. Dan's striking apparel brings together all the key elements in men's outdoor winter wear. Dan combines a strong foundation of warmth, practicality and that bad boy look all the horses envy. His carefree style and attitude of "je ne sais quoi" is respected and admired by all. Dan clearly is not afraid to blend various patterns, fabrics, colors and textures. Everything Dan wears is an "in your face" comment to Mother Nature which defiantly says, "Bring it on, we're ready for you!!!"
Both unique outfits are embellished with a mallet ice smasher, shovel, wheelbarrow and slightly bent muck fork. Eat your hearts out Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg and Michael Kors!
