Vintage furry hat with a Dr. Zhivago vibe

Hat: Vintage eBay, Sweater: ASOS, Scarf: ASOS, Jeans: Wrangler, Boots: Bertie at ASOS, Angel wing earrings: eBay (search” tibetan silver angel wing earrings”, you’ll find them)

Round two of my groovy vintage pieces obsession continues. Want to see the first round? I’ve got you covered right here.

So I triumphed on eBay again with this fantastic faux fur hat. (It makes me feel a bit Julie Christie in Dr. Zhivago – I will admit her hats were more Cossack-style than proper Sixties-style like my hat, but if I see anything in fur from that decade I think of that film.) So a simple winter weekend outfit was jazzed up with the grooviest hat ever – I would have died if I’d been outbid. My eBay record remains intact…!

Happy Tuesday everyone πŸ™‚

    Dr Zhivago always makes me melancholy. It was beautiful but just so sad. I remember listing to the sound track over and over on the record player. (Yes, a real record player.) You look lovely in your bright outfit and furry hat.

      Thank you Debbi, and yes it was ridiculously sad, wasn't it – but what a classic…! Catherine x

    That hat is just so much better than the cheap one I got from H&M this winter – Love the sweater as well.
