For the second installment of the C-hat-auqua series, it’s getting a little funky with the lampshade-turned-hat. It really is… something. I have no idea what the correct period for this piece is (anyone want to weigh in?), but it seems appropriate for the excluded flapper. That girl who wasn’t exactly a wallflower, but certainly didn’t have that joie de vivre radiating from her daily existential struggle. I just want yell, “Girl, the reason you don’t fit in is because you have a lampshade on your head. Get a cloche.”
“All the time the flapper is laughing and dancing, there’s a feeling of tragedy underneath. She’s unhappy and disillusioned, and that’s what people sense.”

Spectacular headwear Rebecca! A true find that would thrill any hat collector! You wear it well and I love the emotion that you portray in your photos. Brava!
I don’t know, sweetie, I’m wearing a cloche today but still don’t fit in! Love your blog–so fresh and sassy. Those travel pics in your archive are GORGEOUS. More, please.
Thanks Marea! I hope to get more travel pics up soon– just have to save up to get back on the road 😉
Hi. I am stopping by from Hat Attack link-up. You have really interesting idea for your photoshoot. You can imagine all storry behind those pictures. I like to see more too.o)
Thanks Anna! I’m going to try to do more of them (probably on Fridays) in the future, as they are quick photoshoots, but such fun ideas. Thanks for your support!
