Aloha, peaches! Today I have a post for you that I have been DYING to do for so long but just couldn't get the pictures right for it and what better time than Accessory Week!? The moment I found out I was lucky to have the opportunity to be working with the amazing Betsy Hatter I knew exactly the shoot I wanted to do and it involved a sunset. Betsy Hatter is an extremely talented Milliner based in Norwich, Norfolk who specializes in hats inspired by the 1940's and 1950's as well as making bespoke creations.
Elspeth' hat on the beautiful Fleur McGerr and literally fell in love. I love the versatility of the hat... It can be worn with an up do (a la moi) or a down style (a la my gorgeous friend Alice, who just styled/reviewed the very same hat! Click here to see how she rocked it!). There are so many different ways you could style the Elspeth hat whether you wanted to take a 40's route or add some roses for a more senorita Mexican vibe or add some hibiscus flowers for a tiki feel. The possibilities are endless!
I love the fact that this hat looks so good with flowers whether you add them to the side of your hair (like I did) or you add them directly to the hat. The hat fastens with a ribbon so you can just clip your favourite accessories right on. Traditionally you're suppose to wear the ribbon tied around your neck but to hide the ribbon I just tide it in a tight bow and used bobby pins to secure it to my hair! Voila!
Admittedly, this post is going to be very picture heavy as I wanted to have a good selection of photo's for Siofra (Miss Betsy Hatter) to use so... there... you have been warned! :-D Enjoy! x
ps. My dress is vintage (from a charity shop) and my hair flower is from Alternate Normality <3
I hope you enjoyed reading my post and looking at my far-too-many pictures :-)
All my love,
