While walking through the fashion district I came across a hat store (I believe it was Manny’s Millinery 28 west 38th) That sold hat shapes for  pretty good prices and I bought two out of a discount bin for only $5 each.  They also sold large bags of rhinestones and a beautiful rainbow beaded trim I still dream about.  Here are two hats I bought:

this hat is sooooo tall!

to be technical, this is a headband, but it is still amazing!

For the record, I am wearing a strapless dress. Oh, and both hats were made from plastic materials, so totes vegan.


Also, our furry friend, Catt Damon, liked the one hat so much he was fighting me  for it!


Last week I went to a massive vintage and antique show down at the piers in Manhattan. While there I stumbled across a pretty amazing find:

plastic feathers!

According to the seller, these date back to the late 1920’s, though I’m not sure of this.  The plastic is very durable and the little shiny rhinestones are pretty sweet.  So, victory in the search for finding non-feather hair decorations that give the effects of real feathers!
