Sunlit Room

I've been meaning to post about this crushed velvet hat I found at the flea market buried under feather headdresses a while back, but I never really got to it. I love wearing it with the big taffeta bow in the front because it hides my face from everyone... and sometimes that is so necessary.

Samantha said...

This is possibly one of my FAVORITE set of photos by you. I wish the sun would shine like that here! You look stunning... and doesn't the sun just make you feel great too?
I just looked back at some of your wicked old posts... I totally forgot about your hair before you cut it! You look so different, but of course you look gorgeous in any hair-do. I love the shorter version the best though--you pull it off so well. Okay, I'm done procrastinating for tonight :) Keep it up chica. These are great as always!

Saludos desde México!!! así que va en español :D

Cada "post" que nos compartes está lleno de estilo e imágenes inspiradoras y seguramente muchos guardarropas (y me incluyo, jeje) son más interesantes gracias a tus ideas!!

Estas fotografías en especial son mis favoritas por su carácter artístico. No se si fue intencional... pero el resultado es fantástico!!

Y a propósito de sombreros... recientemente dediqué un "post" a este accesorio y en él hay una pequeña referencia a tu blog. Ojalá puedas visitarlo y darle, como decimos, "el visto bueno".

Que tengas bonito día y muchas gracias!

I know you probably hear this 10x a day, but I've been reading your blog for over a year and I find you to be completely lovely. You're a very classy, charming girl and truly one of a kind. I think that style is 50% attitude, and all of the beautiful clothing you wear wouldn't be so impressive if you didn't seem like a nice person as well.

Thank you for sharing your posts with us! Keep shining lady :)
