Again with Erstwilder

Sigh, Erstwilder. I love these designs... quirky, retro, whimsical and individual. They are also very well priced. From about $19 to $40. I'm such a fan!

Here are some I own, and many I wish I did!
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
With their new winter range being launched very soon, I am so excited by what lovely creatures I have coming my way.

Hats from the 50s

Some stylish, some extravagant, but all lovely. Images courtesy of Vivat Vintage:

I especially like the matching accessories such as scarves and gloves.

A very silly hat

I love, love, love vintage hats. I guess it is because a hat was a part of every outfit, so they needed to be creative and imaginative. Hats were high and low fashion. They were couture and hand made. They were, in short, style. This hat however is just plain wrong. It may have been high fashion but it looks like a tangled shower curtain.

Awesome Self Styled Pic of the Week

Thirty under $30

Virtual styling on Forever 21. Thirty accessories/shoes/jewellery under $30 each.

10. Woven Ballet Flats $16.80



14. Wool Cowboy Hat $11.99
20. Faux Fur Stole $16.99
25. Pointed toe Pumps $22.80



27. Polka Dot Flats $16.80
28. Tweed Fedora $9.99
30. Floral Silk Scarf $12.80

For Australians the upside of Forever 21 is that the shipping is very fast and the products are cheap. The downside is shipping is very, very, very expensive (over $50) and you can only have 10 products per shipment. However, if you look at the savings you make it can be well worth it.

How to do...

Deco with Forever21+. Most pieces are under $30.
Basic pieces that with the right styling can be transformed into glamourous 1930s show-stoppers.

There's nothing boring about Boring Sidney

A long-time favourite etsy store which I would dearly love to purchase from... when I am wealthy. Boring Sidney's hats are amazing. Here are more than a few examples:



See? Nothing boring at all!
