It seems that this is indeed the Fall of the fox. In home decor, fashion, viral videos (we’ll get to that, if you don’t know what I mean), the sly fox is king of the animal world (de-throning last Fall’s owl reign). I have always been partial to foxes, since they were a favorite of my grandfather’s and remind me of him. He had several stuffed “Charley Foxes”, very regal in their finest hunting regalia, (which always had a seat of honor at parties and in his home) and he named his boat Charley Fox. Also, my favorite animated Disney movie? Robin Hood of course! I think the fact that the main characters are foxes is probably more of a coincidence than the reason I love it, but the point is, foxes are just super darn cute and smart to boot! Why not “put a fox on it!”?
Of course at Silverwood, since we sell so much equestrian-themed decor, accessories, and gifts, this “foxy” trend has been great for us! We’ve got a whole new pool of items to pull from. Of course, fox hunting plays a large part in the equestrian world, so these furry little gingers fit right in with our horsey niche. The thrill of the Hunt, so to speak, has never been easier to attain!
Here are some of my favorite fox items of the season (and yes, some are shameless plugs):
And just for shits and giggles…
