The Hat Junkie

I've been wanting to do a series of blog posts featuring customers wearing Paper People and what better opportunity than this one!  I was contacted by Anna Shoub of Hat Junkie in April.  Anna lives in Lunenburg Nova Scotia and has purchased several of my dresses from Luvly in Lunenburg, a beautiful little shop devoted to independent Canadian designers.  Anna was looking for a dress she had seen at Luvly.  Being that most of our designs incorporate reclaimed vintage materials each is one of a kind so she was after something particular incorporating a vintage floral print.

Take a look at Anna modelling The Donna Dress by Paper People and one of her own hat designs:

  Born out of her love of handmade hats, Anna started her own line of hats.  She has quite a variety made from materials like organic cotton, straw, fleece and even some rain hats (perfect for the east coast climate no doubt).  When I spoke to her over the phone she was dying some fabrics for her designs.

You can check out her work here: http://www.hatjunkie.com/ or browse her etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hatjunkie.
