Hats off to winter!

I have always loved hats and headpieces but generally have been too afraid to wear them. I usually buy a couple each season but the process goes something like this...

I like the idea because Vogue/In Style/Russh do a number of features on the seasons latest plus Dita/Cameron/Kate/Nicole are all sporting them and looking fabulous. I then see one I like. I buy it. I get it home. I try it on with several outfits. I think it looks ridiculous.I hang it on the hat stand where it stays for the rest of the year.

Nevertheless, I did satiate my desire to don spectacular head wear at my recent nuptials by wearing a handmade vintage style head piece that matched my dress. Actually, I almost didn't wear it. After having my hair done and makeup applied I nervously attached the headpiece expecting it to look completely stupid but was then utterly gob smacked by how well it complemented my dress (and kept my unruly fringe out of my eyes).


So now that I have conquered head pieces, I'm going to give hats a whirl this winter. Of course, I do actually sell vintage hats in the shop - and over the last couple of years have sold a few spectacular ones at that! The thing is, hats always seem to look better on someone else's head...


Perhaps the trick is not to look in the mirror for too long - maybe I'll just pop it on my head as I'm walking out the door.




My beautiful handmade wedding head piece made me feel a million bucks!

...hopefully, I will feel the same about this one when I wear it outside!

Your wedding head piece is so beautiful! I wanted to see a big close-up, it's that good!
And I do the same with hats, so I practice wearing them to go grocery shopping.

Hi dear!

Oh I love hats, but I'm not brave enough to wear them on street with people starring at me.
But I still buy some... crazy me.

You look awesome with your wedding head piece.

Thanks for linking me, I've linked you too.

SJP's hat at the London premiere is a fascinating hat study. Not many can wear it, but I think she wore it - it did not wear her. BUT, would she don such a hat if it wasn't a "Carrie" event? I don't think so.
Bottom line, thanks to SJP for going out on a limb and kicking but in that fabulous head gear!

I love your wedding headpiece -- I really wanted to wear something similar when i got married but gave in to peer pressure not too.

Still regret it.

And i'll have to respectfully disagree with fashion herald (sorry dear!) -- i really do think that hat did wear SJP. Take a look at most of the pics of her in it. She looks kind of awkward, like she's balancing a fruit basket on her head or something.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
