This was my first time riding with the Historic French Quarter Parade. The weather was great and my friend and client invited me to ride in her pink Elvis Cadillac. I felt like Barbie! It was great fun!
I got my vintage dress at Magpie. The dress has a fun Hawaiian pastel 60’s print. Since I was going to be riding in a vintage 1960’s Cadillac I wanted to look MOD and fun. I was inspired by Mary Quant “the queen of the miniskirt” and added white Gucci booties, pink tights and a vintage straw bag.
I blocked the hat out of straw parasisal ( a finely woven straw with sheen, has elasticity, high quality) and cut over 80 goose feathers to create a fun ”fire cracker” feather flower.
