I felt very colorful wearing this outfit. I built the ensemble around this aaaaamazing hat I found at a vintage store. I've been looking for a bow hat for a very long time and almost did a little dance in the store when I saw this beauty! Whoever owned this hat kept it in such great condition. It only has one or two very small breaks in the veil and otherwise is perfect. Usually the hats I find have a horribly crumpled/broken veil, so I was delighted at how this one held up through the years. I need to buy myself some mannequin heads or something to set my hats on so they don't just get crumpled on my dresser. My next project I suppose!
I found this coat recently as well. It is one of my favorite vintage finds. The tag's says the brand is Ultima Taylored by Mr. Vincent. It also says that it is 100 percent cashmere, but I'm not an expert so I can't tell if it really is or not. It is very soft and I love the coat regardless if that is legit or not! It is like a big soft robe that I can wear out in public.
The veil also has these whimsical little pompoms all over it! I love how fun they look, and it lets you know this hat doesn't take itself too seriously. As if the bright purple hue didn't give that away!
And I couldn't resist these bright red bow heels when I saw them! One thing that was lacking in my shoe wardrobe was a pair of red heels. I've heard it said (and I must agree) that every woman should have a pair of red heels in her closet, but I could never find a pair that I felt was 'me' enough to buy. These fit the bill perfectly, everything from the pointed toe to the big bow had me smitten.
I'm really excited for this evening. Sean and I are finally going to get a Christmas tree! We're a bit late but I'm so happy because we're going to pick out a real tree. I love having a real tree. The smell and everything about it just means cheerfulness to me this time of year :) I can't wait to decorate it with the special ornaments new and old. Hopefully pictures to come of some of those!
Have a lovely day everyone :)
