With a Hat on Her Head...

I got this lovely little straw cloche yesterday, and its my new favourite thing. I think it will be the perfect hat for wearing around in the Sydney sun.

I'm not normally a hat person, as having fine curly hair means it goes flat really really easily, especially when you put a hat on it. But I think this hat is beautiful, and I've been searching for a straw hat for a while now - and it actually suits me, go figure!


I'm quite sure you'll see it here often in the next few months, along with those shoes - are you sick of them yet?

The dress is one of my very first vintage dresses. Its rather delicate, so I don't wear it too often, and I need to do some repair work around the zip, but I do love it so.

I've not done much of note except cleaned, gotten rid of lots of stuff we don't need and had a mole map (which was an interesting experience to say the least. I've been meaning to get one for a while now, as I pretty much am a mole/freckle).

Off to more things that don't really need to be noted,

  5. Cute, hat, but I find the belt equally intriguing. I bought an elasticized Betsey Johnson one to go with my vintage apparel, but I'm thinking I should have bought a wider one like yours.
    I finally posted the shoes!

  6. Not tired of the shoes yet, and love your new hat! I particularly like everything pulled together by that superfab belt.

    The hat is for sure, most awesome!

  7. Gorgeous dress! Also love the hat. I think you'd look really lovely with short hair like Charlize Theron in the Cider House Rules.

  8. Very cute hat! I usually avoid hats too, probably because I have the same hair type as you do.

    The mole map sounds like something I should do as well.

  18. You look so beautiful! I love that dress--so, so sweet. :) I had to giggle a bit at your comment about wearing hats and curly hair. That's the reason I probably don't wear hats more either (although my hair is more wavy than curly ;). lol. That hat is perfect for you though! :)

  21. I really love that you wore that belt with it. Everything looks very old fashioned and lovely and whimsical, and I think the belt gives it just enough of an "updated" look. Cute cute cute!

  23. You look so sweet, as usual. Love the dress and hat.

    *sigh* I am SO jealous of that summery sunshine you got goin' on over there. It looks so lovely it pains me.
    It is snowing as I type, and 19 degrees F.

  28. I love your hat! It really does suit you! I'm SO glad you'll be coming to Sydney. You have to promise you'll find time to have tea with me and come treasure hunting with me for lots of pretty things! I can show you all my favourite vintage stores, although haven't found that many as I've only been here for 1.5 months :)

    Do you know yet where you'll be living (suburb wise???

    I hope you are reunited with your kitty soon!
