A/W Trend 2011: The Seventies Hat

270305333
llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
This autumn winter I have been obsessed with the 1970s trend which dominated the 2011 trends this season, but then, doesn’t it always? One key item for this trend is of course the obligatory boho style felt floppy hat. Being the colour magpie that I am, I couldn’t choose what signature colour to rock this look with, so over the last few months I have somehow managed to buy three of them! Opps! I’m wearing my Pat Butcher (RIP #endofanearring and all that) style coat and this is how I usually wear them, but I probably should have wore them with some bell bottoms and waves in my hair. Am I taking it a bit too far there? Probably!

I feel like this a little more sophisticated then my little animal hats which don’t worry my lovelies, I do sport pretty much every single day, I promise you that, it’s just sometimes I feel like releasing my inner 1970s boho-esque-ness. I have seen these hats everywhere from Topshop to ASOs, to New Look and Primark. I simply love them, although be warned, they are a right nuisance if you want to take them off in public because they’re so big, and I’m always worried people will sit on it.  Actually, people have sat on it, so I’m worried with good reason!

In other non-hat related talk, I have sort of solved my camera issue because I will be sharing one with the family, but it’s a DSLR and it’s making me cry because I have no blimmin’ idea how to use it. If anyone has any good links to useful websites, online tutorials etc, etc can you please let me know? It’s the Canon 600D, which I have since found out many beauty and fashion bloggers have which is fabulous to hear, so I’m hoping some of you will be able to help a confused girl out! I haven’t really got the funds to buy something new myself, because I am putting a lot of money into a proper website for my shop, so fingers crossed I can get to grips quickly with a DSLR and get blogging again, because I really, really miss it! Actually edited to add that the very gorgeous Leopard Anchor has offered to help me, so feeling much better about it now, but if you do have this camera feel free to add any pointers as well in case others want to know. I can’t be the only one who is rubbish at photography, right?!

Tomorrow I am finally going to start the Healthy Skin Diet with you all, which is YEARS overdue I know! Ooooh and just to let you know my little new year giveaway, with prizes including a very lovely Models Own goody bag, ends this weekend. Click here if you would like to enter. Good luck!

  4. I love those hats! They really suit you my lovely. As for using the camera, it's fairly easy once you know how - AE is the best setting for starting out. The Pioneer Woman has a great set of posts on aperture/shutter speeds here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/2008/05/what-the-heck-is-an-aperture-part-one/

    Hope this helps my lovely! xxx
