Vintage Hat Friday!

Annnnnnd itttttttttttt's... Vintage Hat Friiiiiiiiiiiiday!!!!!

Copeland: This Vintage Hat Friday finds Amy out of the office, and I am running from preschool, to a serious meeting with a law firm client, back to deadlines, then to a locally-made bicycle launch party, 44cycles, in a fabrication shop, Tektonics, where they are, with other businesses, revitalizing an old warehouse/industrial part of Richmond.

The meeting with the law firm is to review and complete any final touches before their web site goes live. We are also planning the firm photoshoot, and I have emphasized that they need to come to the shoot DRESSED, with their game on, about to kick bootie for their clients, not like they're shuffling off to a golf course in rumpled polos and comfy pants.

So I thought I could use this week's Vintage Hat Friday to show them that you don't have to buy a sharp new suit, you can reuse and recycle and still look professional and sharp!

I pulled out an elegant sweater-suit I bought from an estate sale, threw on jewelry, and applied darker makeup than I normally wear at 8a.m.

When you're trying to look important jewelry is critical.
And brushing your hair. So instead of my usual mess, I brushed it back for a polished look. Law firm ladies, are you taking note?
; )

It's all about the Day-To-Fabulous-Evening-Cocktail-Wear.

And it's amazing what gloves and a hat will do... ; )

Amy: I may be out of town, but that sure doesn’t mean I’m out of the game.

Presenting: The Dynamic Duo!

Dangerously fashionable, these two matching vintage bucket hats are utilitarian in the extreme! A wide circular brim makes this the perfect hat for averting rain or sunshine, and metal grommet ventilation holes in a contrasting color pop against the bleached white of the hat. But that’s not all! Both hats include interior sweatbands with complimentary sweat from years of use.

Thanks to my model for hat #2 – Dad ;)

From Miz H:

"While I can appreciate the utilitarian quality of Amy’s dynamic duo hat, I must give Copeland my vote for the one-legged squat pose, if for nothing else!!"

NOTE: It is not easy taking pictures of YOURSELF, propping a camera on a table then trying to get into the frame!!!!!

"There was really no contest this week, but you would have won hands down on your poses alone!"

"Those 'poses' were b/c I had to put the camera on a table to take and then fit into the frame!!! And 5 min before a big meeting! Hahahahaha! Yeah, Kien has nothing to do w/our Recycled Fridays...we are going to give him a vintage hat for Christmas!"
