Okay, so, first things first: my Honours painting assessment went very, very well. The night before my assessment I was up until one or two in the morning with my boyfriend and two other painters hanging our work. It was tiring and nerve-wracking, but worth it. I've worked relentlessly this year, and I'm still not finished. Rather than making me sick to death of painting, working so hard for so long just has me keyed up ... and ready to keep going. I want to keep painting forever!
So, there you go. I've been a busy little Pony and an extremely neglectful blogger, but it's paid off tenfold.
How are all of your end-of-years going? Not too stressful I hope.
Onto the title of this post.
For all of my collecting, and wearing, of vintage clothing; for all of my love of vintage shoes and sunglasses and jewellery - I don't own much in the way of vintage headwear. Some beautiful vintage-clad girls can pull it off, but I always feel as though a vintage hat turns my outfits into historical looks, rather than quirky amalgams. But some vintage hats are so beautiful! I would love to be able to wear them without looking as though I'm trying to replicate a period look.
Apart from a veritable rainbow of berets, here is my teeny tiny vintage hat collection:
So many silly faces, so little time. Clockwise from top left: Men's WWII garrison hat (eBay), lipstick red 50's-60's 'Kangol' hat (opshopped in Dubbo, of all places), olive green velvet bow hat (eBay), 1950's gold leaf headband (eBay).
I love the olive green bow that I bought last week. I particularly want more of these headpieces. They're so lovely - and not too severe.
Lastly, thanks for all of your help with styling those new pieces of mine! I'll show you some looks I've pulled together in the next week or so.
