New Dress, New Hats

On Monday I had a long (read: 5 hour) break between classes so I decided to toddle off to the Antique Market and see if I could find anything interesting. In the past, I haven't often found anything in the way of clothes that interests me and I thought that this would be another one of those occassions. That is, of course, until I found this:

(Please excuse the chair - I was doing some work in the studio, today, and decided to take advantage of the decent lighting and camera and take photos of my dress, the chair was just a bizarre prop I thought I'd use because the pink looks pretty next to the blue).

Isn't it just the prettiest colour?

Outfit details: Hat - etsy; dress - 1950s, Antique Market; gloves - Salvo's; stockings -; shoes - Rubi Shoes.

I also bought a couple of pairs of vintage nylon stockings (one pair in a cute flocked, orange box) and some vintage photos but I forgot to photograph those. Oh well.

These lovely treasures are the hats I won from Vintage Angel's giveaway - they arrived on Monday and I was so excited to get them. I can't say I've ever really won anything before. I was also excited because I've never got anything in the post from Israel before! Thank-you so much to Angel - the hats are gorgeous and I sure love them.
