guest post: nicole eymard of fashion forestry


I am pleased to share the first of many wonderful guest posts from some of my favorite vintage bloggers. First up is Nicole Eymard of Fashion Forestry giving us a peek at her magnificent (and huge!) vintage hat collection. Nicole has always been one of my style heroes, adept at mixing the most delightfully bold, colorful, and humorous pieces from every era and making it look completely right. Nicole is one of a kind and I love her for it.


Hello there! My name is Nicole Eymard, I am the blog owner of Fashion ForestryWhen I was thinking of what to guest post on Fancy Fine I thought hmmmmmmm.... DUH!! An ode to our mutual collection (obsession) with hats. I have TOO MANY so it was extra challenging to choose the easiest to stack etc.

Here are (almost) all of my spring vintage hats. There are many representations from each of the following decades: 1920's - 1960's. I also had to include Clementine, my foxy pom!













Playsuit  1950's pastel plaid...has matching built-in bloomers!!!!
Hat  Late 1940's sun hat with a man riding a bicycle, a horse, a donkey, pineapples... you name it, it's on this hat!
Shoes  I added my own satin ribbons to Topshop shoes
Lipstick  Illamasqua

What a gorgeous hat collection! I'm always envious of hat wearers- I have a very big head so they rarely look good on me. Haha!

I'm just starting up my blog again and would love to meet some new faces. Please do stop by if you have the chance!

This has to be one of the best posts ever! When Nicole first came to London she stored some of her things at my house, that's as close as I got to having this many beautiful specimins in one place. I think her hats sum up her wonderfully eclectic, whimsical and impeccable taste. Not to mention how beautiful do you look in these pictures Nicole ( and you of course Clementine). ;:-) xx

These photographs are so beautiful and colorful! I also have quite a collection of vintage hats, but they mostly fall in the black, gray, and navy variety.

Cute post Nicole! I will always remember going to your house and seeing all your lovely hats displayed upon the wall. I can't decide if I like this type of display even better. You look like you're floating on a dreamy cloud of beautiful vintage hats. So fancy!
XOXO
PS Ashley, I can't wait to see who else will be guest posting on your blog.

So lovely! I feel like you can't look at her or any of her fabulous items without feeling ecstatically happy. Her style is pretty much the definition of joyous. <3

These photos are all at once - gorgeous, glamourous and hilarious. They remind me of that Bjork song, "Violently Happy", you know what I mean?
