Say what you want about the WPA, but they

As you'll see should you follow the link, the hat is for the Milliners Of Etsy challenge for the month of June, and it is freakin' amazing; all sparkly and fruity and colorful and stuff. It is a work of awesomeness and I love it.
Anywho, so I saw the cocktail hat above, that was when I decided that I really needed to do a post on fruit-laden hats as soon as possible so I'd have an iron-clad excuse to share this with the rest of you. Which pretty much brings us up to speed on the current state of things.
This fruity percher fascinator is a bit more subtle but no less stunning. I particularly like that the little fruits are vintage millinery fruits from somewhere in the 1930s or 1940s; it's a nice little touch.
This fascinator has a wider variety of fruits than the last one, and it even has a little fuchsia birdie nestled in it to boot.
And because a little randomness is a good thing every now and again, here's a pair of vintage fruit-themed platform shoes:
Yeah, you might break your neck trying to walk around in these bad boys, but I think it's safe to say that you would die in style. And probably make an above-the-fold story in your local paper, too.
See you Wednesday!
