So... here are the latest looks I love, inspired by the 1944 movie National Velvet, staring Mickey Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor. I love how the equestrian style can be both refined and rugged at the same time. The textures and rich colors make me happy:) P.S. About a year ago I saw Mickey Rooney at the O'Hare airport. He was wearing the most wonderful brown plaid pants, red suspenders, and a dapper derby for a hat. What a classy guy!
