Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi meets Alyrenee

Well it’s  11/11/11 and it’s long past time for another Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi but this time we have added a twist.   I had the pleasure of stumbling upon a lovely lady selling 1/6 hats at the Fashion Royalty Convention this year.  You know me and hats so of course I had to stop and take a look at what she had to offer.  I walked away with three fantastic hats and the itching need to get them back to the studio and photograph them because they are that amazing.  Her name is Alyrenee and her fabulous and entertaining blog is   I decided to pair this fantastic hat with a gorgeous classically styled black 3/4 sleeve silk day dress with rolled velvet collar by James Bogue.   Here is the result….

model:  Forget Me Knot Poppy ( redhead )

Dress:  Bogue’s Vogues ( )

Shoes:  Mattel

Hat: Alyrenee ( )



Ahhhhh!  I LOVE this hat!  Alyrenee, you are an artist.

  6. The doll looks so much more sophisticated with the ensemble you styled her in. The hat is fabulous and I wish women wore more hats as they did in the 40’s & 50’s. The setting was simple but it enhanced the outfit perfectly. Thanks for sharing!
