Pillbox Hat.... MEOW!

DSC05444

So I have been making cocktail hats lately and I am so in love.... My first attempt was This lovely pillbox leopard hat.... It was great fun to make. Once I made it I couldn't figure out if I was going to have to guts to wear it.... Of course I did anyways! I wore it to a craft show we put on in a bar in Costa Mesa... hahahaha. It was great fun. Why all craft shows are not in bars is news to me. It was the best show I've been to. Not profit wise but on the fun-o-meter it was a ball!


Anyways back to the hat... I couldn't figure out what to use... I was thinking black but then every time I do that everyone says " Are you going to a funeral?" and then it always reminds me of Johnny Cash and I want to say " Well Maybe I am... " Since I love black and I wear it all the time... bbuuuutttttt I also love me some leopard. just accents of it. I love my Cheetah Flats from Target. I wear them all the time. and for $12.99 you can't beat em! So the hat.... I am not quite sure how women back in the day kept them on there head. It seems like every vintage hat I have seen have different shapes to keep them on. I made a more modern way... elastic loops to add bobbi pins to. Worked like a charm! I think its weird that I haven't seem more people sporting cocktail hats... Like literally I've seen 1 girl on Southern California other then me. It seems like they are exploding all over fashion blogs, anthro, & urban outfitters, I even saw one at target!!! What the heck!

So anyways I didn't get a good pic of the hat.... I am sure this picture will explain why....

Like a true lady! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! SO anyways.... I love my hat and there will be plenty more to come... I need to get the ball rolling and start adding them to my Etsy Shop but of course like all things I have been up to my eyeballs in felt flower headband orders. Hopefully I get the Canon Rebel I want for Christmas and then I will be golden! So I dont have to use pictures like this anymore... HAHAHAHAHAHA I love how cheesey I am.

Oh I just got a new pair of shoes... I love them.... I feel like they make my feet look like I went and got chinese foot binding done... But I love the nostalgia of them.... what do you think?


Anyways... What is everyone asking or doing for christmas??? Anything good? Is it bad that when I go to look for stuff for other people all I can find is stuff for myself.... Should I be ashamed? because I am not... hahahahaa

The last sentence made me giggle. I totally can't help finding things I want rather than bits for other people!

The hat's great. I love it! Leopard print pillbox hats always make me think of Bob Dylan (he had a song of that name).
