Estella’s bonnet: new ribbon, added decoration, & new shawl

I picked up this new-to-me shawl that I thought fabulously clashed with Miss Estella’s dress. The beautiful cravat that didn’t sell coordinated so well I had to sacrifice it for her bonnet.

I’m absolutely in love with these little acorn decorations I picked up at Micheal’s. They come in so many different color sets. I didn’t think I’d have a need for red but I think it worked well on this hat. The past couple years there have only been holly leaves on her bonnet. While they were great and signified the sharp & prickly character of Estella I did think she needed more froof.

I like how the little white bobbles really pop & stand out on the black velvet bonnet :)

  1. I totally appreciate the lovely work you do. I mentioned you in my blog after lusting for the bonnets and trying a budget version for my trip to Dickens this year. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I love the reddish bonnet with christmas ornament like bobbles in the last picture. Estelle’s bonnet – not so much, but it wouldn’t be as effective if it was just pretty!
