Channelling my inner country western star with a buckskin fringe jacket found at flea market in Santa Fe.

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been bewitched by the transformative power of clothes. Still to this day, my favourite game is to adorn myself with vintage rags reflecting fragments from my deepest dreams.

Though those dress up dreams may have lost some grandeur coming true, my method remains the same with vintage clothing as my main medium.

Today I’m channelling my inner country western star, wearing a buckskin fringe jacket found at flea market in Santa Fe, a silky slip dress from a thrift store in Mississippi, lace up boots from Narnia Vintage and a few precious pieces from my slowly expanding collection of vintage Navajo jewellery.
