"Simplicity is a difficult thing to achieve" - Charlie Chaplin

Happy Monday bunnies!

I'm still getting over this bug type thing that has decided to attack me, but I'm feeling miles better than I was thank goodness. Today I watched "Chaplin", the biopic film of Charlie Chaplin, and I was mesmerized. What a life he led. I sat there for over 2 hours, not moving an inch as I didn't want to miss a thing. I was recording it on Sky+ anyways but I still didn't want to miss a beat. I've always loved his films as a child but I didn't know a lot about his personal life, just the man in front of the camera.

My dad used to have a bowler hat when I was a child and my brother showed me how to role it up my arm and onto my head like Chaplin did, which I still do all the time with hats. I think I wore that hat for about a year straight. I've had a sort of obsession for hats ever since. I bought a bowler hat at the beginning of September in Topshop after I spazzed out for about 5minutes in front of it as I was so happy I found one because they didn't have any ANYWHERE. It's my best friend. All I have to do is lash on tonnes of mascara, red lipstick and do my fringe and I'm ready to roll with that baby on my head. Instant coolness. Like shoes, I really think hats can make an outfit complete. The next hat I'm looking for now is a nice small top hat. Think Topshop again might have them!

Charlie Chaplin was the business people, even if he did marry a bunch of times. Sometimes it just takes a while to find the right one. I even loved his style. Monochrome. Kinda "tramp" looking. Brilliant hahaha.

Here's a few photos of the main man himself to keep you all entertained.
