A few weeks ago I couldn't resist my temptation.
Like most women I love to shop and collect. I've worked really hard trying to tame the inner impulsive shopper in me, and realizing when it's a want and not a need.
I guess with the way the economy is now days it has me rethinking my spending habits a bit more. Obviously for the good!
I was surfing Ebay and I stumbled upon the most breathtaking women's vintage hat.
It's one of those times when you get SO excited and it's a true must have purchase.
Some of you might be reading this thinking, what? A hat?
Yes... a hat.
I've always loved vintage millinery hats, however Im not a huge collector of them. I own a few that I display in home, but that's about it. Unlike my friend Karla Nathan who has a large cabinet busting full of vintage hats. It's an overwhelming site! Lol! I think she holds the record for owning the most hats.
I myself only have a select few that I cherish, and this pink ruffled beauty HAD to be mine!
I was anxious bidding on it because I wanted to win so bad.
To my great luck I won and got it at a reasonable deal.
When I opened the package and saw it for the first time, I immediately fluffed the matted down ruffles. After I perked them back up and stared and admired my new beautiful purchase It quickly dawned on me how it closely resembled a pink girlie cake.
Call me crazzy who thinks of this stuff right? However, it really looks like it could be a bridal shower or wedding cake.
See what I mean?
Ruffles = Icing = Dreamy & Delicious!
I now call it my pink cake hat.
It's worth every bite...I mean penny. ;)
Have you splurged on anything recently?
