Hat-Hazzard



So I've had this hat for a while now, and it sort of had me defeated. I wanted to wear it pulled down over my ears in a turban-esque way, but felt that the main body of the hat looked too flat and deflated looking. Just plonking it on top of my head away from my ears looked…well…questionable. So, I gave up on it; the hat defeated me. Until a couple of days ago that is, when it occurred to me I could try adding to the hat, building up volume with scarves.....






.....meh... .............




.....???.............




.....hmmm....??




..........Yay! So finally I found a way to wear the hat and be happy. The brooch is a cheap old one I added myself. The skirt is a crushed velvet Topshop sale bargain, and the bangle is also flocked velvet, which I thought was most unusual. It was a bitch to photograph, really adorable though.
