It's in the Box!

Where do you store that special hat? In that special hat box of course! I really do like these Safari hat boxes from Eastern Influence
They are very chic, very classic. Even if you don't put hats in them,they look so nice you can decorate with them instead.

Viva La Vintage!

I love everything vintage! Yes! Including hats. I love. love, love this floppy vintage hat from the glorious vintage website Candy Says
It's a vintage fest website and you are bound to find something special.
Oh yes and I know the hat is summery...so heres's what you do - buy the hat and have an indoor picnic on the floor of your living room. All you need is some nice sandwiches cut into triangles, Victoria Sponge Cake, cut into cute slices, lemonade (pink if you like) and some posh crisps like Tyrells or something.If you have a free standing floor lamp you can even position it in the middle of the room and pretend it's the sun.
Go on it's fun - remember to buy the hat.

I love wearing hats,especially when I'm having a bad hair month. I have decided to blog about hats for a while. There are so many beautiful hats out there and you fashionista,yes you,need to know about - you deserve it. I'm starting off with a classic English cap - The Cambridge to be precise on www.failsworth-hats.co.uk The hyphen is for a mark of respect. Seriously though you will look so cool in this cap,a fitted black polo neck and dark indigo bootleg jeans - you can't go wrong. I would set it off with a lovely large tote (red leather knowing me)
There you go

Back to School For You!

Well it all started when my friend's son outgrew his current school uniform. I was at their place at the time, and noticed a rather nice grey v neck jumper destined for the charity shop. I asked if I could have it instead and the rest is history. I was pleasantly suprised when I tried it on at home, to find it was a perfect fit and looked good with my old Levi flairs that I have had for about 15 years, inherited from my big sister.Now every time I visit my local Sainsbury's supermarket,I take a look at the childrens clothing section to see what I can find. Try accessorising with belts around the waist on the jumpers and cardigans, or even wearing a shirt underneath for a preppy look. It's so much fun!
