Oh So Ladylike

This is officially a historic moment - my first outfit post with a hat and probably my first outfit with a hat since I was about 12 and bucket hats were part of the mandatory uniform.  The problem isn't so much that I don't like hats - I do, but the hats I tend to like (1920s cloches, berets) are not the best fit for my very sharp bone structure or face shape so while I always try them on in stores, I end up wishing my head could morph into a different shape for the day and go on without buying it.  That is until I discovered the magic of the wide brimmed hat which not only makes me feel like a cross between a lady-who-lunches and some sort of duty screen-siren, but also makes my head look normal!  HUZZAH!  I got this at the Glassons winter sale too (holy heck I must've purchased at least 6 items from there in July) for $15 which is kind of pricey for hat in my opinion but I justify it through the fact that it's made out of a beautiful forest green wool that will go carry it through the seasons. Photobucket This particular cape (which is definitely a staple) has debuted way way back in early July I think in a much more cozy layered look so I figured I would show it off in a much more classic style this time.  You can't really see my shoes well in any of these pics, but I figure by they've appeared so many times you guys already know them.  I never thought that when I bought leopard print platforms that I would be able to wear them with so many outfits, not to mention make them office-appropriate but actually, I think the classic shape of them makes them so easy to work with and surprisingly comfy for a pair of fairly cheap heels on sale.

  2. I have a love-hate relationships with hats too. They look so lovely but they mess my hair up so bad. You look great though at that cape is divine.

  8. It's my first visit to your blog and your illustrations are stunning!!
    I love hats and wish people wore them more. I have a collection of vintage ones that I wear when the weather is perfect, it's not too windy, and I have somewhere to go that requires looking extra cute.
    I hope you're having a great weekend,
    Mel

  10. Ohh Anni...you look so elegant in this outfit! That hat especially helps to make it seem like you stepped out of a chic, Audrey Hepburn movie. :)
    And, as always, your illustration is great.
