as some (or many) may already know, the late isabella blow was a british stylist who wore hats (and clothing) with utmost panache and style. i rarely bow myself to praise too many celebrities, but isabella is one of the few exceptions, because she is a style icon who deserves praise and adoration.
i relate to isabella so very much...she was not beautiful in the classic sense (and hell, neither am i), but she was intelligent, ridiculously creative, innovative, and cheekily daring, and that's just scratching the surface. isabella was called a "free spirit"...something i'd give my eye teeth to be remembered for as well. how fab would that be?
life's too short not to take (fashion) risks...isabella's life was short too. here's hoping she made the most of it when she was here. if her personal style is any indication, she certainly did.
ms. blow wore hats better than i could ever dare to wear them. but just for a fleeting moment, i let myself channel my inner isabella blow [with the help of some MORE newly thrifted vintage hats]:
