The Skippy Purse
I have to admit, lately I have been obsessed with my Attachable pouches, which I named Skippy in the meantime. I use them every morning when I go out to the barn. They're great as a treat bag when I train my horses on the ground and as an iPhone holder when I ride. Sometimes I even find myself color coordinating my pouches so they match my shirt (I know, I know ... but I am a fashion designer after all and I'm allowed to be a little eccentric now and then). They are so versatile and, since they are made out of Harris Tweed or wool fabric, I can just dust them off and they're as good as new.
So, I had another great idea. What if I take Skippy out of the barn and into town? And what if I used Bentley's old reins as a strap for a cross body bag? If that's not equestrian fashion with a twist, I don't know what is.
By the way, my Skippy purse also goes great with my Rosie Shirts.
Despite Phoebe's obvious lack of enthusiasm I love this purse and I hope you will too. Don't be shy! Contract me with comments. I can make you your own personal Skippy purse with your horse's used reins, or any other strap that you want.
Enjoy the little things in life!
