Hello all! It's nice to be back in the blogosphere after the big move to LONDON. We're just about settled in to the new place - more on that (with photos!) tomorrow. Meanwhile here's what I've been wearing a lot lately...
I bought this little rabbit fur hat back in about July (top ebay tip, buy stuff out of season for the best bargains), along with a matching muff and purse. I think the set is actually intended for a little girl, given the size of the muff, but the hat is a perfect fit and I've been looking forward to wearing it ever since it arrived.
My 'crochet' tights are also getting a lot of wear recently - they're a great alternative to opaques, easy to wear, and a good way of being able to wear pale-coloured tights without looking 1960s (nothing wrong with looking 1960s - I've been feeling very 1960s-inspired of late - but it's not what I'm going for right now).
I've also been experimenting with this new hairstyle, which works great with this style of hat. It's basically a simple turned-inside-out ponytail, but instead of leaving it at that I just kept going, pulling the ponytail through repeatedly until it resembled a 1940s back roll, then pinned in place. Easy peasy, and (with enough pins), pretty secure.
