I don’t know about you, but when I’ve got something shiny and new in my wardrobe, I can’t just wear it once and be done with it. I like to wear it over, and over and over until the novelty wears off. And with this gorgeous vintage cossack hat, the novelty isn’t wearing off any time soon.
– Black vintage hat from Bess Georgette Vintage
– Black long-sleeved top from Cotton On
– Multi-coloured kaftan from Target
– Black harem pants from Target
– Black stilettos from Rubi Shoes
– Hematite necklace (vintage, from my Grandmother’s jewellery box)
– Gypsy bangle (gift from a friend)
So, you might have noticed that I’ve got new shoes too. I bought these online a few weeks ago and I’ve been wearing them quite a bit. Despite the height of the heel, they aren’t too difficult to walk in because they’ve got a little platform in the front. I just love the strappiness of them!
I’ve been trying to think of new outfits to wear this hat with. Last time, it was a kind of modern hippie outfit. This time, I thought that I’d go for something bright and fun. I found a bunch of pictures in my scrapbook that featured eccentric old women in kaftans and billowy pants lounging about, dripping with jewellery and furs. Instead of donning a tracksuit after work, I thought I’d take a leaf out of their book and slip into something more stylish.
I’m still not tired of this hat. Not one bit! I’ve got to think of a different look to team it with next time. I’m thinking something a bit more polished and sexy, perhaps a wiggle skirt and a tight jumper and pearls. We’ll just have to see…
