Boater Hats

So for some reason I was browsing boater hats via google and this image reminded me that .. I should probably get around to decorating my boater hat I bought ages ago!

So I’ve always wanted a boater hat (before I acquired one), they really remind me of picnics and the countryside. I was at Savers on the Summer holidays and just wishing I would finally get my hands on a vintage one. AND THEN IT HAPPENED. I was stalking straw hats in the hats section when a Savers employee strolled about in front of me and placed some new stock on the rack.. one of which was a boater hat! As soon as it was on the rack, it was in my hands! Duration of shelf life: 2 seconds.

Boater hat: Savers – $4

It came with quite an ugly ribbon which I just removed and it’s now got a pretty maroon one with a bow! Though I’m not sure if I like the ribbon dangly long past the brim, I might end up cutting that off. What do you think?

PS. Hi to Unyime from Lookbook who reposted my look here, Carrie from Carrie’s Diary who blogged about my look here and lastly Jess from JessLovesFred who posted my look on tumblr here, I am stalking your blogs as we speak & much enjoying your posts.. do check them out!

2010 Top Designs – Vce Season Of Excellence Opening Night

dxfy9k 2010 Top Designs   Vce Season Of Excellence Opening Night
Hi all..
Long time no blog!

Yesterday I went to the Opening Night for the 2010 Top Designs Exhibition!

For those who don’t know what I am talking about..

What is Top Designs?!
Top Designs is an exhibition showcased at Melbourne Museum every year, displaying the works and developmental folios produced by VCE (it’s like the high school certificate) students in the subjects of Media, Design and Technology, Food and Technology, Systems Engineering, VCE VET Multimedia, and Visual Communication and Design.

It is on annually and is presented in partnership with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority as part of their VCE Season of Excellence program!

Adapted from: the Melbourne Museum website

So towards the end of last year, I entered my 2nd semester
Visual Communication & Design folio and surprisingly (very!) it got in! There was a special Opening Night on yesterday night for the exhibitionists, their parents, teachers & principal which was very exciting as we get a sneak peak of the exhibition before it is open to the public today! Also, it was the only time we were allowed to take photos!

This is my work on display! My folio was a greeting card set & advertising campaign for a valentine’s day range at a stationery boutique. The greeting card desgins actually have more to it than what you can see on the front cover. Most of them have a connecting picture in the inside or back of the card which tells a story! However you can’t really tell through the way they are displayed here. Eg. the card with the girl in the apron has a picture of a boy with a whole table of food inside.. (lame now that I think about it!) and The card with the boy and the missing puzzle piece has the girl on the back cover laughing because she has it :)
