1940's Vogue Parisienne Hat

I have a weakness for vintage dress hats. A weakness that has led to a collection of well over 100. EEK! Perhaps more of a problem than a weakness. :)

This ones my new favourite, I love that it looks like a cross between a bonnet and a witches hat.

Talking of witches hat's, I went to see Harry Potter last night.
It was so wonderful, I cried the whole way through! I would have been embarrassed if it hadn't been for the entire cinema of weeping women around me ( I didn't see any men but I bet there were a few).

I'm so sad it's all over, I think I will have to re-read all the books now.

Are there anymore big 'HP' fans out there in the vintage blogging world?

Hope you have all had lovely weekends. x

  2. I can't say that I'm a HP fan, but I'm a huge K-M fan! Your thick, lustrous hair and ivory skin are to die for (one of my favorite Nicole Kidman movies) and that hat looks great on you! Have a wonderful week, dear friend!

  3. Drink more Tea: Thank you, I promise I will, they are all too lovely not to share. x

    Shady: Why thank you! Blushing again. :) I have to say I didn't have you down as a HP fan, but that's okay a shared love of Lynch and Twin Peaks is enough for me. Hope you have a wondeful week x

  12. I was balling all through the film too! My sister and I were huddled together laughing, crying and screaming. It was so good! I'm ashamed to say I haven't read the books, but after watching and loving the films I might have too.

    PS Your hat is divine! My problem is I don't have enough vintage hats :(

  15. Thank you all so much for the hair compliments! :) I will defintiely give you some styling tips ( Miss Rosette Brune) although it is a lot simpler than it looks and comes down to a lot of experimenting and happy accidents.

    Hannah: I have never actually tried fish tails plaits so wil have to give that a go and see what happens. x

    Hannah & Landon: You have no idea what an amazing compliment that is coming from you! You are actually one of my main sources of 'hair'spiration' hehehe... Yay for the long locks and rag rolling. ;) x

    Emma: You have to read the books, the films are amazing but can't come close to the details in the books, your imagination will run wild. x

    HS: Thanks for finding me. I love your blog. :) x

  18. I am a milliner and feeling very envious of your 'collection of well over 100 hats'! If you ever want to show it to someone who's passionate too, please let me know, I would love to see them all!

    1. HI Mya, ooh I am very envious of you being a Milliner. I was actually thinking of doing a blog post on my collection soon. I have recently been down sizing and have been getting rid of a few, bit by bit, I have my eye on many beautiful ones on Etsy so i'm trying to sell one every time I buy one as i'm poor and can't afford to keep buying them. It's lovely to have a collection but I feel like it's getting excessive. A lot of them I have kept to go into my Etsy shop when I have it up and running so i'll let you know when I have listed them. xx
