I have an endless wishlist of items that I am constantly adding to, and have just added another! A cloche hat.
I first had the idea when I bought this beige coat from eBay, because the big fur collar reminded me of a 30's style (even though I think it is actually from the 70's)

I really love the colour, and I'm having a thing for velvet at the moment so that's a plus. It also comes in black or a forest green.
I'm also hunting for lots of shoes that look like this:

The picture is from Sally Jane's wonderful blog, and I think they would top of the outfit perfectly!

Love the inspiration. I get so jealous when I look at vintage outfits like that--why don't we dress so nicely anymore???
