It's that time of year again. Morgan and I are both March babies and we happen to celebrate our anniversary in March as well. Needless to say, it's a pretty gifty month. Recently, I've been tring to get inspiration on gift wrapping and I came across this cute confetti wrapping idea via Oh Happy Day. Wouldn't this be such a fun D.I.Y project? They look exactly like those little Italian sugar cookies.
A couple weeks ago, I may or may not have told my friend Felicia I would make her a nautical Lolita hat. I knew I was in way over my head the second I uttered the words. As luck would have it, I stummbled upon a lightweight copper ship at an antique shop in Cambria. Being excited over the prospect of creating a Rococo-inspired hat, I spent a good part of last night doing research on Elisabethan fashion. While googling keywords such as "Marie Antoinette ship hat" and " nautical Lolita fashion", I found this awesome video from Acid Girls. It's sort of my visual anthem for this project. Enjoy!
