I found the hat at the salvation army two weeks ago. I was so excited, but restrained myself from jumping up and down in public. It didn’t occur to me until Saturday night that I should wear it for Easter Sunday (it wouldn’t be the first time I used Easter Sunday as an excuse to wear a hat!)
I sacrificed sleeping in Sunday morning and did my hair in a vintage style using this awesome Youtube tutorial.
I will be refining this technique to wear to a friend’s vintage wedding later this year. (Sarah, what did you do to your hair for your sister’s wedding?)
Kristina, the dress was thrifted but I LOVE it and have wanted to copy it. Thankfully, I don’t have to -a friend just loaned me a pattern that’s nearly identical – Simplicity 3877, view A. I would like to make myself several – it’s nursing friendly and has subtle, vintage flair when worn with the right accessories – don’t you think? I chose my pearl earrings from my English grandmother, with the matching strand that Jeremy gave me.
