A Hat and an Outfit

I haven't been blogging all that much, lately, because I've been desperately trying to finish all of my assignments (I only have two days left of my entire degree!!) and it has left little time, and energy, for blogging. However, I've written a few ideas down for when I have some more time. For now, here's a new hat and an outfit -

1940s/1950s straw hat, 15$ (was 20$ but I got it for 15$ on account of being me) from Red Ruby Vintage. I think it would be a great hat to take on holiday, as it's totally flat! Alas, I can't see any holidays in my near future but hopefully one day I'll be able to take this hat on a trip somewhere.

And here's a rather poor photograph of me wearing it. Are my eyes looking slightly wild? I think the stress is finally getting to my head. Wibble.

And I look utterly miserable in this one! I was on my way to my Lindy Hop class, too. No one ought to look miserable when they're on their way to dance! Oh well. I was too lazy to change out of my lounging clothes and decided this was good enough to dance in.

Outfit details: scarf - Salvos; earrings - Diva; dress - church op-shop; socks - ?; shoes - KMart.

Also, I've just realised I now have 200 'followers' (that really does sound far too cult-ish for my liking). Thanks to everyone who has read/supported this blog thus far. It really means a lot to me!



  1. Congratulations on the 200 followers - and thank you for providing us with so much eye candy and entertainment! (Even your lounging clothes are glam!)

    Best of luck with what's left of your course :)

  2. what a great hat! And good luck with the final spurt of your degree!

  3. All the best for the final countdown! :-)

  4. Such a fun hat!!! I love the dress as well! I think blue looks stunning against your coloring :))

  5. Lovely hat! Good luck with the degree!


  6. I love that hat! The mesh top is so cool. Good luck with finishing up your degree!
