A Book Launch and a Hat.

I was honoured to be invited to the Style Me Vintage Book Launch on Saturday evening and what an evening it was! There were so many faces from the blogging world there it was lovely to finally meet them in person. I got to see others that I have met briefly before as well as meeting lots of lovely new people.


I mainly managed to take photos of the lovely food! 
There were amazing Pork pie cupcakes and of course actual cupcakes. I have to say they were the best cupcakes I have had in a long time. The Pork Pie cakes were made by Wild Thexton and the Cakes by Restoration Cake.

I went to the event straight from my day job and thought I was organised, I had my curlers in all day and my dress in my bag. When I took the curlers out I realised I had forgotten my brush and lippy! 
Luckily for me Kelly of Hayday Honey was at the launch to save me! 
Here she is doing Glamourologist's hair. 

I took some pics of mine once I got home, you can also see the hat I wore in these too. 
I am trying to make me a hat a month this year so I have some to wear out myself.  This is my January hat. 

It was my first go at hand blocking where you only use that block as a base and play with the felt to get shape. 

It was a very glamorous event and there were some amazing outfits going on. There was a photo booth set up by Hanson Leatherby and I can't wait to see the results. 

I have to say a huge Thank you to Vintage secret and The Vintage Mafia for putting on such a lovely night and making me feel so welcome. 


  1. Looks like you had a fantastic time, very lucky to get an invite :) I have heard good things about this book. I have the Style me vintage hair book. Love the hat creation, I think you have created a lovely shape. Will you be selling?

    1. Thanks. I think I will be selling this style once I get a little more practice at the technique, no two will ever be identical but I should be able to get them very similar.

  2. Gorgeous hat! Soooo stylish :) you deff have to sell this one coz I want one! xx
