What I Wore Black-Out 2010 Day 3: Full of Bobby Pins

Skirt, thrifted; shirt, Seduction; sandals, birkis; hat, handmade by my mummy; bracelets various gifts and handmade.

I'm on the fence about this skirt. It's a light weight corduroy, and awkwardly stiff. And the waist band, which fits perfectly, refuses to stay in one place. Still, it's a nice olivey green, and looks divine with hot pink, and I bet lots of other colours.

I've never posted an outfit featuring this hat before, but I've worn it like three times over the past week. I just shove all my hair into it, stick it full of bobby pins and I'm set for the day. It's so much more glamourous than a athletic headband, adds a pop of colour, and matches my purse/camera bag, so expect to see it a lot more in the coming days and weeks.

Do you have a go to accessory?



  1. I love the hat that your mom made you! It is definitely more glamorous than a headband!

    I always wear my wedding band and engagement ring, but my go-to accessory is probably my vintage Paris hot locket necklace.

  2. you look so cute in that hat and it's such a great match with that top :D !!

  3. never considered that combo of olive green and hot pink, but it works!

  4. Fuchsia's a good colour on you Rosie! And the beret makes you look very chic.

    As for go-to accessories, well, if you pop over to my blog today you can see me wax philosophical over my recent love affair with spring scarves. :-)

  5. thanks for visiting girl! :) love the hand-made hat, i bet it has a value more than a label one! :D :D :D

  6. i lvoe that hat! the colour is so bright x
