Fire Engine Red
I don’t actually think ive ever been a big hat person, ive usually stuck to headbands. But this autumn ive been catching myself on the lookout for them, what is going on??
I actually have a feeling its because of my fringe!! Weirdly enough..because im a fairly lazy person when it comes to my hair after I have it coloured im good with it for about 2 weeks and then I start putting it in a bun or pinning it back, so going and getting a fringe was a bit of a joke to my friends because its just an added thing to do in the morning (what can I say I like to sleep in)
I was thrifting last week and went up to the counter to pay and this gorgeous little red cap was sitting there all lonely, and I instantly wanted it!! So far I have worn it twice and it just goes with everything, even if it is a bright red colour.
Since last week I have been on the hunt for the perfect sewing machine and classes to learn how to use it once I get it haha and so far this is at the top of my wish list. Its just too perfect for words. Before you know it I will be whipping up more headbands and altering my dresses!!
I will be heading to the We heart vintage sale on Saturday I haven’t been to this one before and its just down the road from me so ill be snapping away on my camera and showing you all the goodies im sure ill find over the weekend here is a little interview of the ladies behind it on the Winifred and Bance website if you want to have a snoop..
I also found this cute little skirt thrifting last week and I have the urge to take it up a few lengths (I think it would be so much cuter just a tad shorter) it has sea shells printed all over it (gasp..too cute) and on Sunday I made some double layer cupcakes.. after cursing my oven for having weird settings and making them rise wrong grrr I decided id just make the best of what I had..im so determined to get it right next time.. even with a dodgy oven!!!
