Do you like pre-holiday times and parties that are starting? I do! And every time, I am panicking, of course – what to wear, how to assemble the outfit. This week, a party that I had been looking forward took place, a holiday party, and the dress code, well, the same. Ok, I have got a red satin cocktail dress, suits perfectly. However – how to make it look new, which accessories to use? I could make a handbag, but… thinking… with a cocktail dress – why not a cocktail hat? I always wanted to have a cocktail hat!
Some red velvet and satin, white and red felt, satin ribbons, silver thread, beads, cutting, sewing and arranging decorations later – and a tiny hat was in front of me!
Since the moment I received the invitation, I had been happy thinking about the party, knowing it would be great. Additionally, I had impatiently been waiting for an opportunity to flaunt my first cocktail hat.
The party was mind-blowing, and as far as the hat is concerned, I had a lot of fun listening to the comments. One of my favourites is: “it looks like you have a box of chocolates on your head”, a lady told me smiling widely. Yes, I think that we should decorate ourselves exactly with such things: boxes of chocolates, satin ribbons and wide smiles!
