Vintage Steampunk Hat Reminds Me Of Alice

Vintage Steampunk Hat Reminds Me Of Alice In Wonderland. Hello friends. Happy Monday. Or should I sat, Hat it Monday!? I have not posted here for a while, to tell you the truth I am mentally, physically and emotionally drained.

As if the last year hasn’t been hard enough, attending the funeral of my father is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I have had a month to prepare but this weekend was a lot tougher than I ever imagined.

On Friday was the funeral, I worked Saturday night and after work on Sunday, I felt like I could just collapse on the floor in a big heap! Also, I was in a week and dizzy mess. I know deep down my dad would not want me to make myself poorly so from today I will be working on my health and happiness goals.

Vintage Steampunk Hat Reminds Me Of Alice In Wonderland:

When I was talking to my mum over the weekend, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a cool tall hat that had been customised. So I showed my mum the photo and said “look at this hat” The hat reminded her of one my dad treated himself too for his birthday. She quickly ran off to find it.

Turns out my dad I had the same tastes for quickie thing and vintage finds. It is Steam Punk apparently, but so reminds me of Alice In Wonderland. The top hat with the clock on the front!

You know how much I love Alice In Wonderland themed thing’s don’t you? Well if not, you do now 🙂 “I’m late, I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!”

Maybe when summer comes I will borrow it for Afternoon tea!! This then goes on to remind me of the time my dad gave me some money to buy some Alice In Wonderland Irregular Choice shoes that I had loved for ages.

Desperately Seeking Alice In Wonderland:

So I have been looking everywhere for some gorgeous navy blue and white striped Alice in Wonderland, Irregular Choice Tick Tock shoes but I can not find them anywhere. All of the shops on and offline have sold out. Typical, eh!? Desperately Seeking Alice In Wonderland. Now I feel like I need to look for them again. Maybe on eBay or something like that!!
