I would travel only by horse, if I had the choice.

“I would travel only by horse, if I had the choice.” /Linda McCartney

It’s October and we want to honor the memory of the luminous Linda McCartney, the rock’n’roll photographer, winged musician, animal rights activist, late wife of Paul McCartney and mother of four. She sleeps with angels now, after her battle with breast cancer in 1998. But her bright star still sparkles. Her iconic photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison defined the swinging sixties, her wild voice and keyboard skills in Wings won audiences bigger than the Beatles. Her vegetarian frozen food line became an instant hit and her freewheeling feeling for fashion still inspires.

Keep it kooky by pairing a floral dress with chunky knits, patchworked denim, striking sunnies and western boots, for that laid back look that reeks of self confidence. And make sure to slip on her daughter’s pink lingerie underneath, since a percentage of the profits goes to breast cancer prevention at the Linda McCartney Center.
