Straw Poke Bonnet
Here is a
poke bonnet that I recently purchased from
Just Two Tailors to go with my
regency outfits. Loved the one that Kate Winslet wore in the
1995 version of S&S so I started looking for my own and luckily
found this one for around $35 in all. The ribbon is a Martha
Steward moire design that I found on sale at Michael's.
Although I usually won't buy anything Martha, this had a wonderful
look and feel and was very hard to pass up at $1.49 for a roll.
The ribbon is currently attached with straight pins only, in case I
want to change colors. I kept the decoration simple so I could
wear it with a number of things, and I really just posted it in case
someone else was look for similar bonnets and had not found where to
purchase them yet. It also allows me to put my plug in for
Just Two Tailors. I have only purchased two things from them,
two bonnets on two separate occasions, but both times they were
wonderful to deal with. With both orders there were some
issues that came up with the online order, I called them up, got a
hold of them right away, and they called me back a couple of times
to make sure that they got everything correct before shipping.
The bonnets arrived in a very timely fashion and I would not
hesitate to purchase anything from them in the future. As you
can see in the last photo, I finally got to wear it at HBE 2009.
