New Love















I find I'm really partial to certain colours. I can't remember ever liking pastels except when I lived in California and had a perpetual tan. Haven't had that for... Ok, more than I can remember.

Early in the summer, I found a pair of Plum sudo Burky type shoe. Very feminine with thin mauve elastic straps that cross over the top of the shoe. Cute!! High on the Squeal factor! Anyway, need something to wear with it. Got some fabric and made a jacket, shirt and skirt of a cool funky cotton/Lycra print. Again, not drawn to mauve, country pink, yuck!!

Yeah, well now I have a small wardrobe of mauve, dusty, faded type of colour mauve. Of course you need a hat for weddings, so I got out the white merino/silk fibre and the (what was I thinking 4 years ago) silk package of dusty mauves, grays, blues and made a hat.

Love the hat. Have worn it many times. Have had 2 woman offer to buy it off my head. Hate to see the hair underneath it! No, I really love my hat. And bracelet. And necklace. Oh well, you need accessories to go with shoes! Right?

Hi Holly,

Gorgeous outfit and fab hat! Love the blog as well but just check out the link to your Etsy shop, it wouldn't work for me at all. Have also put a link for you and Feltmakers Ireland in my blog. Hope to see you soon.
