THE CAPSHAW COLLECTION--EDITION VI
A collection of Santa Fe Fiesta dresses, squaw dresses and other festive Mexican and Spanish attire.....
It was a cold winter day when we got together for this cover photo....(it was supposed to be a romantic shot throwing roses off the balcony, but we didn't have a quick enough camera to catch the shot.)
Her sister Chiara is a cool sophisticate in this gorgeous pleated cotton squaw skirt with a fantastic swirling pattern of gold braid and ric-rac. Again, I feel it originally was part of a dress set and the label is probably on the missing blouse. I rate it a full five:*****, because it is just outstanding in craftsmanship (intricate pin-tucking on the pleats) and in originality. Keekers is wearing it with a velvet top and bolero, gold jewelry and a gaucho hat.
The final selection from this year's acquisitions: a Mexican tucked cotton full length dress in yellow with cotton lace trim and embellished with tucked designs throughout. Modeled with a Mexican sash at the waist and an ivory celluloid pineta. Links to the rest of the collection will follow the Rancho de las Golondrinas selection.........
All together now, "QUE VIVA LA FIESTA DE SANTA FE"!!!!!
