She was a painted doll, with crimson lips and arched brow and jet, jet black hair emphatically lacquered around her.
And her hat.
Her hat was a painted doll's face with lidded eyes and Clare Bow lips, edged in diamante, with a flourish of ribbon, also sparkling with gems. All in powder blue and turquoise.
Maybe hat is the wrong word, maybe it was more of a fascinator, that is what they call them isn't it ?
And I was fascinated.
