Fashion Show at the Antique Mall

Miss Em and I took a little detour on Sunday and stopped by one of the local antique malls. Typically about halfway through she is so totally over it and is ready go somewhere else but Sunday I found the treasure trove for Emma aka TheGirlWhoLovesHats --- A booth with HATS! Not just regular hats, nope these babies were totally vintage and marvelous. So what does any Mom who the kids call paparazzi  that just happens to have her camera on her do?? Why I stage a little Fashion Show of course.

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind this was totally off-the-cuff so there was no a hair nor make-up team available on such short notice. ;) These are my favorites.

This produced a lot of laughs as Emma tends to want to pose with a *gasp* pouty look all the time but I was able to wiggle a few good looks out of her ;)
As we were leaving she said "I loved that Mom, when can we do it again and can I try on those cool old* dresses next time?"
-- I do believe a new tradition has been born!

What is something different that you do with your kids? Has it become a Tradition yet?

*the OLD dresses were some fantastic vintage ones in the same booth as the hats. I was in LOVE :)

Be sure to check out all the fab photos over at Sweet Shot Day I am linking up too :) :)


  1. Awe! That is so cute! (And by "cute" i mean "like totally rad Mom";) Did you take any hats home with you? I love that little cloche. I recently hat a random run in with a woman that was moving who gave me a vintage hat that I ended up hanging on my wall! Maybe you guys could start a collection! <3

  2. Hahaha, love the pouty face. Our neice sports one in just about every picture we snap of her. What a fun outing you two had though!
