Lady in Lace – Winner Best Dressed – Fashions on the Field – Brisbane Ladies Oaks Day 2017

Love everything about this, felt so ladylike – perfect for Ladies Day!  The hat was a plain 1940s vintage base when I bought it.  I added the grosgrain and velvet ribbons and wired them for shape in the bow, the navy Merry Widow veiling and the cameo at the centre of the bow.
