My Fair Lady

Sweater Dress: H&M
Belt: H&M
Hat: Vintage Henry Pollack
Bag: Mulberry Bayswater
Boots: Aldo
Tights: Hue
Scarf: Gift from Iran
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Found this vintage Henry Pollack hat last spring at a flea market for $1, a fraction of what they normally cost.  Now, I'm not a huge hat connoisseur but I think some restoration would be needed as  the hat has lost some of its shape along the years.

My best advice for finding real vintage designer pieces is go to garage sales/flea markets in affluent neighborhoods of your city. The quality of the clothes sold there is unbeatable.

So jealous of your bag! I was dying when I saw one in leopard print. I love anything leopard. Also love the shape of the bag and the fact that it has 2 handles!

I love your outfits because they're always so feminine and lady like. It's something I need to work on! The addition of the bow belt is a great touch. Definately adds a lot of character and personal style! Excellent find on the hat. Fantastic price!

Love, love love the outfit!! That belt is like the cherry on top. And the hat is just amazing. Great choice dear ;)

Michelle Chic said...

love the big giant bow! so cute!

Laura Tenshi said...

A dollar? You found a treasure my dear, the hat is amazing.
I can't take my eyes off that bow belt, its so beautiful and it matches the sweater dress so well.

About Beso. Yes, it's more like a site that hosts other shops and they present all items in one place.
It's much easier to keep track of them this way.

chellemorgan said...

I love this look! So elegant but sexy at the same time! The hat and the sunnies are perfect with the red lipstick. Gorgeous :)

Say what? A dollar floppy hat! What a score!

I was at H&M today and saw the red version of that bow belt. You're wearing it well!

Vanessa said...

I LOVE the way this look came together. The flash of red lipstick and peek-a-boo patterned tights add a little bit of sass to the mostly covered top. You resemble a modern Audrey Hepburn on a flirtatious day. Perfection :-).

Moniek said...

OMG I love this look and I like that you're inspired by My fair lady!

Veronica Biliboc said...

You look so pretty and sweet with that hat :) and the belt with ribbon is also on my fav list. I can`t wait for H&M to open their store in Bucharest.

sacramento said...

My fabulous Faboulista...You are a true inspiration.

Hey Mina,

What is your email address? I'd like to ask you something private. I don't have MS Outlook and didn't see an address anywhere.

Thanks!

This is classic black and white at its finest. I have that belt and sweater and never thought to put them together!!! I also have a major hat obsession, so I'm super jealous of your flea market find! Take me on your next garage sale/flea market hunt...please :D? haha
