Last Vintage Hat Friday!

Yes (tolling bells slowly across the land)...
It is the last
Vintage Hat Friday.

Vintage Hat Friday helped us to bear those dark winter days in the workplace, an excuse to celebrate second-use clothes and show that you can be stylish and reused savvy in the workplace!

But now our work breaks turn towards spring- where you will find us crouched over cold frames eagerly tending the first crop of the season.

So, in the spirit of Vintage Hat Friday, we thought we'd end with a twist:
For all you loyalists, we decided to SWITCH OUTFITS of previously shown vintage duds!
So thaz right, peeps- Amy is wearing one of MY outfits, and I am wearing one of HERS!

So who ya gonna vote for NOW?
(Vote For Meeeee! ; ) )

Amy: Ode To Scrap Bar, NYC!

So this is it folks, the last 08-09 Vintage Hat Friday, and I’m trying very hard to look disenchanted with the establishment. I have to admit, I thought that cutting up shirts was something people in the 80’s did because they wanted to look tough, or perhaps just show cotton who’s boss, but frankly, it’s darned comfy. About 5 minutes after getting into this getup I started cataloging the shirts I have that could stand a little scissor action.

So, why should you vote for me? Well, I’ve managed to not only squeeze my size 8.5 feet into Copeland’s ladylike size 7 platform Converse sneakers, but I have done so with an injured toe! (Hey, she’s gonna play the “woe is my I skinned my knee!” card, so I’ve got to employ countermeasures where I can!) And then managed to climb on top of the vintage Lane chest without falling off! Since I’m more accident prone than a dizzy knife juggling clown that is quite the accomplishment.

I have never attempted to ‘stick it to the man’ before, but I seem to be managing pretty well J Look, I even put on extra eyeliner for you today! I’m going to miss our time together on Fridays, but hopefully we’ll see you again next fall for… Vintage Hat Friday! (Vote for Me!)

Copeland: “Social Net-Working?”
This hat gives new meaning to networking. I love the details, and the way it shows so nicely against the pink hair.

Now on Amy, this outfit looked rather prim and '50s.
But I am TOTALLY feeling the New Wave 80s vibe when I put these digs on!

I feel elegant in a "I'm off to The Ritz to see the Flock of Seagulls" kinda way.

So, Don't.
Don't You Want Me...


The skinned knee? (Flutters eyelashes) I wasn't going to mention it, but SINCE Amy did, yes, I had an office mishap earlier this week.
It was a rather spectacular wipe out...
I wish we had filmed it!

So vote for me, Miz Wounded Knee Social Networking New Wave Princess Gal!

I'm so bereft over this being the last Vintage Hat Friday, I'm unable to decide to whom I should cast my vote! My Fridays will be all the more gloomy not having the hats/outfits to look forward to seeing.

Goodbye to VHF, I hope you return! My vote goes to Amy and her wonderfully tasteful hat!

I loved the vintage hat Fridays!

hmm...I vote both as ya'll both look good (an odd at the same time), but in different ways.

ah man, I like the spin both of you put on the outfits...especially amy's on copeland.

but, I suppose I'll give the vote to amy! slashed off the shoulder t-shirts always win in my book.

sad this is the last VHF, though. there's spring hats!

From Amy's Husband:

Oh ladies, When I looked and didn’t read the context of the contest today, I was a bit confused to say the least. Either way, this time I can’t decide, you’re both working those outfits perfectly! My vote goes to each of you! (I can do that right?)

Amy you look absolutely fantastic again this week. You both look terrific, but Copeland, you have a boo boo on your knee! I have to cast my last vote for Copeland.

Vintage vintage, hmmm. This looks like fake reuse. I sense collusion. I miss the originality and competition. But please do it again, it's great fun.

Gotta vote for Amy. Extremely cute.

Us Southerners got to stick together. :P I do so love good GRITS. This vote goes to Amy!

Another hard decision,so I'm going to split my vote. Both of you look great, just in very different ways. Goodbye VHF!
