Hello kittens! I cant believe July is already over and August is here. Summer for me is just flying bye! These last couple of weeks i have sort of put myself in hiding. Since i had quite a hectic and wonderfully exciting beginning of summer with so much traveling and adventures, and now that everything is finally winding down and im slowly back to my routines, i have taken quite alot of time to just enjoy being a quiet hermit, day dreaming of all things pretty, and being swept away by the short stories and imagination of Joan Didion.
However, yesterday there was a small vintage show and it was every opportunity to pull back my covers, get out of bed, and mingle with society. The 1920s straw cloche hat in the first two photos is one of the treasures i brought home with me yesterday, but only after i had to put up a small fight to get it. The funny thing is I saw this very hat last year at the same show being sold by a different seller who only wanted pennies for this hat compared to what the lady who bought it and was now reselling it for yesterday. I remeber going home last year beating myself up for not snagging it when i first saw it, since then it has literally been one of the peices that has been haunting me in the back of mind and when i saw it yesterday from across the room my heart begin to flutter with excitement, and i quickly ran over to reunite with it. As i was walking over i was determined not to let this hat get away again. Unfortunately i had to suck it up and pay almost three times as much than when i first saw it for sale. But, im not too worried because i plan on wearing this for the rest of the summer flocking under the sun on the beach, while catching up on my reading!
I hope July was just as kind to you, as it was to me! Hello August.
