This blonde bombshell is my good friend and horse jumper extraordinaire, Jude Carrie. She was absoultely tickled....well, blue.... at Fiona Jappy's gorgeous paintings. Being a gifted person herself she fully appreciated Fiona's sophisticated and classy palette. It matched her smart coat perfectly.
I then pointed out to her Fiona's own coat as seen below:
Which features in:
"She had been away" by Fiona Jappy. Happy Birthday, by the way, Fiona!
So now I thought I would show you this smart little number....
This gorgeous vintage swing coat dates back to the 60's and was artist Olivia Irvine's coat when she was a little girl. I undersatnd that one of her daughters can still get it on and models it for Olivia. You may recognise it in the following piece:
Perfectly observed in "Rosalida Revisited" by Olivia Irvine.
Which I instantly recognised from the following treasure of a painting:
