Equestrian Weekend | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

My last business trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico enticed me to look at another type of fashion, the one that is far from my city style: western style and even equestrian style. There is a lot of charm in this style, it’s a little rough, a little country, suggestive of adventures with bizarre horses running with the mane in the wind, in all their strength and grace.

Local stores in Albuquerque displayed a lot of western clothes, but I haven’t seen many people wearing that fashion in the street, except cowboy hats on a few older men.

I thought it would be interesting and fun to wear an equestrian style for a weekend in the gold country of California. Up there, one can still feel the spell of gold and the roughness of pioneers. Architecture is the same as in the 1800s, saloons are still there and people do wear this kind of clothes. At least I will not look prepared for Halloween. With this style,  I have more opportunities to wear my huge turquoise index ring, an original design of Navajo Cecil Atencio.

I made up a concept board with all I want to wear and now that I am looking at it, I can say, it would feel comfortable wearing this style even in the city. Just need the right horse. I love the ankle bracelet to wear over the boots, nice touch! It comes in a few colors.

 

(All items in my concept board are from https://www.backinthesaddle.com)

This is how the concept of building a new personal wardrobe starts, when I am remaking someone’s image. I look at the client’s lifestyle and decide how many pieces of clothes he/she needs for leisure or work. I look at the colors of skin, hair and eyes, the shape of the body, I take measurements and put all the information on a concept board. Once approved, we go shopping. Nothing is difficult with experience and skills. Ciao,
Valentina

    I’m glad you’re having fun with fashion, Valentina. I love that vest. Any time is the right time for a big turquoise ring! (Or any other stone — I love big rings.)
    “Just need the right horse.” LOL, that would be the ultimate accessory! Hugs!
