How fun is this topper covered in plumage!
The color of these feathers reminds me of my top chicken, "Helen". She rules the roost on the urban farm and her Rhode Island Red good looks would make a beautiful hat for sure.
For the time being though, Helen will be best off providing the gorgeous eggs she does daily. They are a most beautiful color of glossy brown and look more like enamel than egg shell.
Whenever I get to pull one of Helen's eggs out of the coop, I can't help but marvel at how lovely her eggs are.
But this post is not about chickens so let's get to it!
This fantastic hat was a perfect match for this 1950's wiggle dress by Pat Premo that I snagged from Etsy recently.
Jacalyn Wollenburg (jbvl.wollenberg at yahoo.com) sold me the dress and I want to thank her very much!
It was like this dress has been waiting 60 years to get to me. It fits like a comfortable glove and I absolutely adore it!
The crazy feather hat is from Some Like it Vintage and I have to say that it is in perfect condition. They tell the truth there. So believe them when they make comments on the wear of their hats and garments.
The hat is a full coverage hat.
I think back in the day when women had "bad hair" days, they put on a hat with better looking hay instead.
I chose the Minnie Mouse black suede pumps to go with this Wiggle Dress. I think Minnie would approve.
The perfect length dress! Be still my heart (I am not kidding)!
I can sit without worrying if someone can see up my dress! This is important if you want to be an elegant dresser.
Elegance means being lady-like and that means covering up those lady parts (all the time...)!
Elegant and revealing are on total opposite sides of the fence.
There will always be issues when you have unprofessionals take your blog photos. This pic is a perfect example. Notice I am not fully buttoned up. The top hook is undone but the photographer (my husband) didn't notice it. He just kept snapping away!
I guess I should confess now that many of my friends find me to be a bit "whacky' (can you believe it?).
They have referred to me as being like Lucy (many times). Typical gifts from my friends include items such as:
- Lucy episode dolls
- Vitameatavegamin candy
- Marriage self help books from Lucy & Ricky
- Any type of Lucy memorabilia or something with a Ricky accent
I think I have that crazy Lucy look in my eye in this shot. And those red feathers...
More issues with the amateur photographer. He does't understand angles... or how to NOT add 10 pounds.
In this shot, he made my seams look they were covering "chunky turkey drumsticks".
Dear husband, I am trumping on you. YOU'RE FIRED!
If you haven't noticed, I have a serious typo running in the photos. I say, "1960's Crazy Hat Lady" but meant 1950's. Being that I am too busy to redo the photos, they are staying 1960's.
I figured since I was born in 1963, it still works.
Now for the video portion of this blog post.
