No rant today, the sun is shining and I managed to
have a walk this morning so I'm in a good mood.

Yesterday I dragged myself into town to send a few
packages and to pick up vitamins.
While I was there I though I'd visit my two favorite
charity shops.
I found a few vintage summer bags for my shop and
also these...

Stunning long cherry red Cheongsam, £2.50.
It's one size too big for me but that could be altered quite easily.
The color in this picture isn't quite right.
Click here for a full picture and to see it's true color.

Vintage hat, £2.75.
From the 1970's/1980's, doesn't really matter since a straw hat
is more or less timeless.

The ugly cheap scarf ended up in the bin as soon as I got in.

I rather wear it like this. Or...

Like this with some Hibiscus flowers attached to it. Or...

With big Lilies.
The choices are many and it could be worn with several outfits.
Great buy!

I also started to work on a few more hats, finished one
last night and I'm about to finish one now as we speak.

And I just noticed that I now got 190 followers, as soon
as I hit 200 I will have a giveaway. I already got a few
vintage bits in mind.

The dress is pretty!
I surely like the hat most when the flowers are on it.

Beautiful hats. I wish I was more creative.
