*The submissions for OCEN's Feed Room Fashion Show are rolling in. Yes, this is a ridiculous but entertaining competition, because we love competitions! Between September 2021and January 2022, submit a photo of your fabulous feed room fashion attire [#feedroomfashion] and be entered to win OCEN swag plus a private consult!
I think high fashion has a thing or two to learn from equestrians; the absence of ego, really exploring the outer limits, and embracing the function with the fashion! I can't begin to tell you how absolutely ridiculous I look most mornings when I head out to feed. I'm always up first, so I typically grope around in the pitch black looking for things that won't collect too much hay. Then, I may or may not cover it all up with my favorite [albeit hideous] robe that is the perfect weight for most seasons. Then, there's a big decision to make about the safety, warmth and convenience of footwear. Ok, so it's mostly about convenience and NEVER about fashion, but now we get to have some fun with it!
I'll share my ridiculousness first. Scroll down for other submissions...winter makes for some goodies. A) Mega Grunge: A bum arm meant I could only put on the loosest attire namely my husband's clothing. In a moment of mega-laziness, I asked if I could go to dinner in this. He said no. B) Boo Box from the in-laws had some oh-so soft scary cat pants. C) The Hideous but Delicious robe that I wear more than I would like to admit.
On the other side of ridiculous (hope the neighbors don't see) attire is the clean (I hope I don't get poop or slobber stains on this) attire. I was caught recently doing barn chores minutes before leaving on date night, and I do recall feeding horses in a literal prom dress back in high school. I'm going to continue to post my best/worst @feedroomfashion and hope that you will too! Submit before January 30th, 2022 and be entered to win one of several categories; most mismatched, most misinformed, most convenient, and most colorful. *Please keep it PG!
