January Hat Attack

Finally, I’m doing it. The Style Crone has been hosting a Hat Attack on her blog since September.  I love hats, and what to wear them more on a daily basis, not just to Church on Sundays. I thought participating in the hat attack would be a good way to do this. Well, it’s taken me a while but I am finally doing it.  This also marks I foray  back to style blogging, something I meant to cut back on not give up entirely.

Hat Attack 1_1The dress in Evan Picone, the hat Amanda Smith, and the tight Hue, all gotten at Macy’s a few years back.  The shoes are form DSW. All the jewelry is thrifted.

Here’s to a New Year of challenges and accomplishments!

Artist Molly Crabapple

stoyasmall

So I discovered this artist quite by accident. A friend had posted a image on facebook. The blurb about the image mentioned another image about Salvidor Dali drawn by Molly Crabapple. So I click the link and was amazed. She inspires me to draw more!

Check out the video about her Week in Hell project here .
