I have been collecting thoughts and ideas about this collection for months now, sketching and collecting magazine clippings and saving pretty photos. I have to say that I was single handedly inspired by this wonderful flea market booth that I found. It had the most lovely wall full of vintage hats and fascinators from the 1950's and 1960's. It was that sparkling eye catching wall that intrigued me so much. I picked up each hat and studied it, I wondered where the previous owners of the beautiful hats wore these pretty hats to and I some how imagined this elaborate fancy Merry Fete.
I knew right then and there that I wanted to create a collection for the ladies that would also appreciate finding such a wall of rare and beautiful vintage hats. I thought about what each pretty lady would do each day, what they would like to wear out for a day of errands, date night and maybe even a fancy party. I wanted to create a collection of casual wears as well as special event accessories and jewelry. So this collection is made just for you.
Over the next week I'm going to break down a few sections of the new collection and share some more photos and ways to style them. I am so excited to see the last few months of ideas, sketches and thoughts come to life. This fall collection has been my baby for months now and I'm just thrilled to see it all come together. It was so difficult not to share little peeks and hints as to what I was really doing but I'm glad that I waited. I hope you love the collection as much as I do.
