That's right, I found a third rainbow striped hat for my collection! I made my rainbow ribbon hat, and splurged on a vintage striped hat last fall, and then I spotted this little number on Etsy just after Christmas and couldn't hit buy now fast enough! I just love these hats! Does one really need three rainbow striped hats? Perhaps not, but I know should a fourth appear and somehow make its way into my collection I wouldn't exactly be surprised!
I paired the new hat with my black vintage suit that I scored on Etsy last year for such a great price and it fits like a glove. Forever excited about suiting! Another something new are the matching earrings and brooch in vermeil coated brass with blue rhinestones that I found at my favorite local antique mall. They were on sale for $10 dollars so naturally into my basket they went! I also picked up a copy of Look magazine from the late 1940's to look through and use as a photo prop. The advertisements are ridiculous, and some downright dangerous (lets just say they used to use Lysol in places they shouldn't have, yikes!). The scarf I have on here is gorgeous, I'll have to get a better photo of it sometime, and depicts brightly colored clocks and time themed designs on rich satin. The thicker silk did a great job of keeping me a bit warmer in the full on winter chill.
I have even more suiting to show you soon! I am on a spending freeze at the moment, which I'll be writing about soon here on the blog, but I still have a few things from the holiday sales to show you. I've yet to even begin any sewing projects in 2017 though, it is well time to get back to my repro roots! Hopefully I can get something started this week, but we'll have to see as I usually fall into bed after work ;) I hope you've all had a lovely Monday!
