I have a confession to make. I have a Great Big Fashion Crush on Emily from Some Girls Wander. Her style is gorgeously feminine and retro, and she manages to pull off hats, fingerless gloves and knee-high socks with an aplomb that I can only dream about.
Some Girls Wander is the only straight size fashion blog that I read with any kind of regularity, and it always leaves me feeling like diving headfirst into an op-shop, embracing red lipstick and dusting off those hats that I keep buying and never wearing. The last one being a kind of somewhat more discreet version of Aretha Franklin’s famous inauguration hat.
I loved the hat. I think I realised at the time that there wasn’t much of a chance I would ever wear the hat, but I loved it, so I bought it.
Sure enough it sat on my dresser being neglected, until I picked it up and realised that at some point during the months since I had bought it Suki had made short work of the little veil.
This, combined with a recent post that J over at Fatshionable did on hats, inspired me to finally muster the courage to pay homage to my favourite fashion blogger and take my own foray in Wanderland.
I love this whole post!! Thanks for sharing the links and your outfit is gorgeous!
I follow Emily's blogs, ditto on her clothing pics. Divine.
I do the exact same things with hats. I buy them, then I don't wear them. So I'm glad you got some use out of yours.
I actually thought that first pic of Emily was you (until I hit her knees in my scrolling), so that's totally a look I think you could pull off!
I also follow Emily's blog and as I was looking at your photos I thought the style very similar and then went on to read about your admiration for her! I think you pull off the hat wonderfully well.
I love your outfit.
1. You look adorable, as always.
2. Aretha rules.
3. Thanks for sharing the Some Girls Wander blog link. I love her style (of course, being a thirtiesgirl, myself).
wa your outfit so beautiful, one of my fav outfit in all your blog
I love Emily's blog I think you both have great style!
I absolutely love that hat. You can absolutely make it work and look effortless!
By the way, I was so inspired by your shorts post, that I bought some tweed shorts and made whole outfit around them (and tights). I linked to you, of course!
Thanks again for the inspiration!
aww you look soo adorable I love the hat soo vintage! Love love love! I always loved veiled hats!
Found you via Definatalie.
As soon as I saw that first photo of you I instantly thought of Emily, who's blogs I adore. Well done!

Agreed on the Emily fashion crush! I just found your blog via Style Crush, your fashion sense is too cute!

Hi Lilli, I believe you wore this cute-as-a-button hat at Chitra's Closet on Friday night. Looked fab, girl, wear it more often. Hats are good for the soul! Much love, Jen
This dress from Kmart is amazing!
I used to work there and have not been there for proper shopping since I finished working there in 2003. I'm more of a Target girl. But now, you have inspired me to check out the Mart.
