Hat Box and a Feathery Chapeau


What's a hat loving girl to do when a hat box calls her name and more importantly is also on sale,
the only possible solution was to follow my heart and bring her home. She also has a smaller sister ,
I have just the right sized hat for her, so maybe she too will follow.


I must admit I fell for the elegant lady with her wonderful large bowed hat and that she is carrying a little
white dog ( like my Raffy , that is if he didn't dig in the garden and was perfectly groomed). I am guessing
these boxes were sold as decorator items rather than real hat boxes but for me a hat box it is.In fact this
one is now the home for a rather special new hat that will be unveiled when our weather is sunnier and warmer, soon I hope.


 To showcase my hat box, I have chosen a black frilled jacket from Harry Who, purchased from a
recycled clothing store earlier in the year and my favourite Moyuru pants .I have teamed these with
a pair of coffee and black mules from Paco Herero that have been with me since the last time this style
made an appearance and a vintage multi-coloured feather chapeau that I purchased in Daylesford , Victoria
at an antique store and a collection of bangles.
