A Flapper's~ New Traveling Hat Box

I love hat boxes and traveling cases, I think it brings a touch of class to your look when your traveling or just having an over night stay somewhere. I happened to have found this little victorian print travel wig box at work just before it was going to be sent back to get tagged and put on the floor,and to have some other Modern Day Flapper find it, grab it and buy it. Now I know that it's a wig travel box and not a hat travel box, but it's all the same to me, and I'm using it for a chic little travel hat box/case.

A Modern Day Flapper's~ Spring Comeback~

Hello my Modern Day Flappers~
         I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in so so long! I finally landed myself a Fantastic new job, and have been making so many cocktail hats, I feel like my head is spinning. Ever since the viewing of the Royal Wedding, and all the little Fascinators and Cocktail Hats the guests we're wearing, My Little Hat Shoppe has been getting some great attention.
I recently had one of my hats pictured on~ Check it out Here! Thank you Nadine Bedford!
       I'm so proud of Women who see that these little hats are a fantastic Fashion Accessory, and Fashion Statement to wear. I get complements all the time from people who are interested in who I am, just from the hat I'm wearing that evening.  I think when a Women wears a little fascinator or cocktail hat, it brings a sence of attention to others that your a Classy Dame, and that your not afraid to show your elegance, especially through Fashion. But hats aren't just about grace and elegance, it's also a way of spicing up an outfit, like adding a little bit of  flair to your everyday look. Either way cocktail hats are a bold way of showing your fashion sence and your love for vintage.
