As I continue to have fun with adding new pieces to my existing wardrobe, one of my favorite pieces is fast becoming hats. There are so many wonderful ways to change up your look by just adding a hat here or a hat there.
Recently, I did get sticker shock when I went online to order a hat for an upcoming event. I had no idea the cost of some hats, especially when you want to dress up an outfit. Well, I was not ready to shell out over $100 just to add to my look. So I did the next best thing. I improvised!
I found a wonderful summer straw hat for under $10 and went to the local fabric store to buy ribbon and faux flowers. Using my hot glue gun I whipped up this look in just a short time. And I don’t think it turned out too bad in the long run.
The flowers were around $8, bringing the total to well under $20 which more like it for me and in line with changing up my look for $25 and under goal.
Now if you are not creative or just don’t really know where to start, enlist the help of a crafty friend who can give you suggestions or ideas to get you going. Or go online to see what others are doing.
