About My Feet Roared The Sea

As mentioned when I first debuted this dress a couple of weeks ago, I'm slowly collecting horse print pieces. One day I shall have a completely epic (slightly frightening in it's size?) collection of horse figurines, pictures, etc. I've actually been trying to get my parents to buy me a vintage carousel horse since I was very little, so I still have hopes that one day such a thing will dominate my living room, to amuse any guests I might play host to. At the moment my home is transitioning far too often (3 states in 3 years, soon to be 4?) for me to truly start building that collection. The worst thing about moving is packing things up and unpacking them at the other end. So a collection of miniature horses would really be a pain to box-up. However, I'm never afraid to collect clothes because I know they will be used and worn; they serve a function where a carousel horse merely collects dust and looks pretty. So for now the only horses I am collecting are ones that can be worn. I'm really pleased with this dress as well since it's a very easy piece to throw on. I also couldn't resist pairing it with another pretty pony: my horse clock necklace.

  8. 1. I'm obsessed with that dress. The color, the pattern, the pockets!
    2. I LOVE how you paired it with this maroon tights--the pop of color is perfection!

  9. Yes, there is definitely something to be said about collectables and keepsakes compared with the durability and usability of clothing. A piece of clothing can be a keepsake, but a keepsake can't be worn or used quite as much as a piece of clothing.

    On another note, I'm not a horse print person, but I do love the idea of taking a motif and running with it.

    I'm also on the hunt for a good watch necklace that won't stain or tarnish too badly. That's cute, the one you're wearing!

  10. I would LOVE to see your horse collection! That dress is so fabulous for you and I love the color of the brownish yellow paired with the deep purple tights. Such a pretty combo. And i'm very jealous of that beautiful, rocky spot by the water that you take photos by! <3

  12. A carousel horse in the living room — now that's a charming idea!

    By the way, I like your new blog layout! Very clean and neat.

  13. I saw the skirt in that print on Yeye a while back, and am still considering ordering it for my sister's birthday. I think smaller, independent designers are my absolute favourite to buy from these days. The dress looks great on you!

  14. Ooh, I love that dress! Not the colours I would usually go for, but in that combination it looks just fabulous.

  15. This dress is amazing. It almost looks like something from a MIU MIU collection. I love how you added the fur collar to your coat. It adds that extra WOW factor.

  19. Sooo cute! i just love the pattern, and the way it goes so perfectly with your shoes.

  20. That dress is a great shape AND I love the print because it reminds me of cave paintings. I like that the horses aren't evenly scattered over the dress but are sort of running in herds.

  21. A+ dress.
    very cute!
    And your shooting location is neat. Love the GIF at the end of the post.

  22. I'm really loving all the gifs lately. Their cool and like a mini video. Are you going to share where you are moving to?

  23. oh my gosh what a cool dress! My blog is fox themed and i've been looking all over for a fox dress. have you come across any? did you just google for a horse dress?

    ReplyDelete
  24. that dress is perfect with those shoes, they are pretty much the exact same shade.
    i love horses also, this dress gets me wishing Australia stocked more horse printed items!
    however i did see the horse bag of yours the other day at a store nearby.

    p.s. i like the new layout for your blog

  25. @My Heart Blogged, I won't share where I'm moving to until I know for sure. Everything's still very fluid right now. :)
    @Kitsune-kun, foxes are trending right now so they're everywhere. Even Alexa Chung just wore a fox print dress by Opening Ceremony. I find my horse print pieces by chance though, no searches; I just look at a lot of shops often.

  28. Such an adorable outfit. It would be really cool if someone could build a bookcase between the legs of a carousel horse so it did have a purpose.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Everytime I see a horse print item I think of you! You're already buidling up such a fantastic collection!
    A carousel horse would make a lovely centre piece at a candle lit dinner party, wouldn't it!

  30. It's the perfect horse-print dress! I love how it matches the color of your shoes, too! Can't wait to see what other horse novelties you will manage to hoard in the future. <3

    For some reason these photos gave me a wee flashback of when you used to do do "ballet poses" in your dorm room. Haha. Call me sentimental but those always made me smile. (:

  31. That horse print dress is so pretty! And I especially like how you paired it with the horse clock necklace!

  35. I really like the dress, somehow the tights match, but your hair looks REALLY good here! like super soft, and really nice! Have you changed your hair color or makeup? Something just looks different =)

  36. That dress is stunning on you :) and I love the horse print.

    Cothes are a great thing to collect especially when you don't want to quite settle down :) I used to give in to the odd craving for room decorations but then they only make me feel bound to a place so I am keeping to collections that go in a suitcase as well :)

  37. love the mix of colors! copper tones+ purple!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love vintage carousel horses, if I had room I'd totally get one! It would be so fun to restore one too!! I love this print, any silhouette prints are coveted in my life. :)

  41. Hey Rebecca! I really like this color combination and that dress might be one of my favorites you have. Have you done a remix with that one? If so I would love to check it out.

  43. @Lindsay, I only got the dress right before I went to NYC so I haven't had time to remix it yet; it's brand new. :)
