This Week's Look

Winter’s Veil

with 2 comments

This Week’s Look is still on holiday but we couldn’t resist a quick post for our voracious readers. Anyway, fashion never really takes a vacation, now does it? Or perhaps it does. How else can you explain resort wear?

Now that we have washed our hands of all that holiday hullabaloo we can start getting serious about spring 2012. As we mentioned last year, pleats and pastels and lace will be everywhere come pollen season and I can barely contain the urge to dust off my canary yellow veiled fascinator for brunch. Oh I almost forgot! I now have one in lavender too! Still, we are sensitive to the fact that some of you have been too busy cramming turkey and egg nog down your gullet to shop for vintage accessories. That’s why we’re here, to help you out of the winter doldrums and into something bright and light for spring. To that end, we searched etsy this week to find you some of the prettiest spring-inspired vintage toppers around. Click on each image below to see the actual listing.
