To celebrate, I'm sharing a selfie - a rare occurrence! Here's me, enjoying a great vintage hat that I mended a couple of weeks ago. (Simple repair, the veil had come unattached in a couple of places.)
Isn't it such a sweet hat?! Its full pedigree is: "1940s Ivory Straw Hat with Black Veil, Flowers, and Feathers by Edythe of Evanston." Too my eyes, it's quite whimsical - so I had to try it on. And better yet, it was made right here in my home town.
This is one of the perks of doing these repairs, for sure. I get to play around with all sorts of fashion that otherwise would never be on my radar. I am far from a clothes horse. I like what I like, tend to the grey-haired hippie look. Julia is always finding new wardrobe treats for me while she's doing her sleuthing and shopping for her shop. She really helps me look more presentable.
To top it all off, I picked just the right fashion pose to show it off. Here's the photo Julia took of the hat on her lovely model Rada. Seems to me that Rada can wear any kind of hat and look just perfect!
