In the airport lounge she sat in a fancy feather hat..

I think I am beginning a new obsession. Hats. I've got to admit, I've always been a little obsessed with them and have amassed quite the collection of them. When it comes to wearing them, though, I've always been a little hesitant.

I've no idea why, because my craziness knows no bounds when it comes to the other areas of my wardrobe, but I always feel there's something about a hat which makes you so instantly more noticeable.

I completely fell in love with a ridiculously overpriced feather one at the weekend in one of my local vintage shops, so started an eBay search for something similar. This wasn't similar but was a couple of quid from a hospice's selling page so I popped a bid on it and was pleased when it arrived the following day. I love the net and feather detail and the colour made it perfect to go with my new dress!

As for the dress, this is the one I went for with my #passtheparcel voucher. I was actually pleasantly surprised to find that the background colour was a little darker than I had anticipated - more beige than the white I'd expected. It arrived the very next day after I ordered and the team couldn't have been more helpful when I called to place my order. Good customer service is so great. 
Unfortunately this one doesn't seem to be in stock on the Aspire site anymore, but other Jolie Moi dresses can be found here.

This is the first Jolie Moi dress I've added to my wardrobe but it's so well made, I'll definitely be looking to buy more. I love dresses with a tulle underskirt (as you can probably tell from most of the ones I've listed for sale lately!) 

Are you a hat fan?
