The Mini Boater

Marc Jacobs' mini boaters in his spring 2009 collection are so chic-part Mary Poppins, part Isabella Blow, part Alice in Wonderland. Below you will see how to get this great look, from the original down to $1. Have fun!

Mini straw doll hats at Michaels for under $1. Decorate with gross-grain ribbon in solids or stripes. I just bought a bunch and am experimenting. I'll post some finished versions! I am also looking for vintage versions on eBay.
