My friend who one of the many B in my life, is a collector of vintage outfits. She has often assisted me in vintage shopping forays. She needed some last-minute support in getting her hair up and her hat organized for a wedding last weekend. B had purchased a hat at a shop in Berkeley and was wearing it with one of her vintage dresses.
I added some complimentary elements to the hat so it would match her dress and put her hair up into a French twist. She especially liked the banana-shaped, net flourishes that came on the hat but felt it might need a little something, in addition to some repair. I re-attached a barrette to the hat. And I added a bit of color with some green ribbon and some orange, silk flowers.
