Perched on top of my head, at an angle, is a little Victorian riding hat re-created by, Aka Tombo Millinery located in Tokyo, Japan. She makes modern hats with a vintage twist! I found her store on ETSY. It is the cutest darn thing! It is a felted wool hat with a little black net that barely reaches over my forehead. The hat is secured to my head by two small combs attached to the inside of the hat.
I am wearing a black column composed of a lighweight, long sleeve black top and black jersey maxi skirt. I have layered a citrine color cropped tunic over it. The cropped tunic and black jersey maxi skirt are from Eileen Fisher….as is the silk scarf. All the Eileen Fisher pieces were from her Fall 2013 Collection. The origami black leather clutch is from Turtle Ridge Gallery in Door County, Wisconsin. It is a favorite of mine!
I have so many outfits planned in my head for this little hat. This is the first of many.
The vintage Emmons gold tassel necklace was found on Ruby Lane as were the apple-green Bakelite bangle and the gold-tone metal wrap snake bracelet. A gold tassel bracelet from Rachel Zoe’s Fall 2016 Box of Style is mixed in this stack of vintage bracelets. The earrings are gold plated discs with small jewels set in them.
