That seems to have been my mantra this past couple of weeks- we've acquired a mini-mountain of new stock just lately, as fast as I prepare it there always seems to be more to do!
Here are a few of the gorgeous hats and handbags that will be making their way up to the shop tomorrow, I have to say these are among my favourites EVER.
Ladies are already coming in to the shop looking for their formal and Melbourne cup outfits, and I wonder if some of these hats will be in the newspaper one day, being worn by a 'best-dressed' winner??
Rare 40s felt
Such an unusual texture to this one and a lovely silk velvet band
There's no way I could get this one to sit on a mannequin head, it needs to be pinned to a real head, LOL! Perfect for those who love the fascinator style but of course this is an original 50s!
This one doesn't show too well in a photo but is a lovely 50s silk velvet cocktail hat, perfect for the races or a school formal (prom).
In this (lightened) close-up you can see it has little bows all around the edges, so cute!
Elegant 1940s topper, reminiscent of Victorian styles
Again I've lightened this pic to show you the detail, in reality the colour is a rich black
Stunning 40s tilt topper, I have to say this is one of my favourites
50s lucite box purse
50s black leather box purse, always a great basic, and so versatile
40s cylindrical box purse, this is so handy as the underside of the lid is a mirror
Navy grosgrain handbag with pristine silk interior, beautiful!
