They Can't Take Hat Away From Me!

"The way you wear your hat..."

Oh Frank, how I adore thee!


And oh how I adore vintage hats!!!

I recently visited Hot Couture, a local vintage shop, in search of hats for my upcoming vacation, and I SCORED!!! Hats were 50% off!! Can't beat that!


I wanted a black beret or tilt hat for Paris, and I found this black straw hat. It's pretty darn adorable! Now I'm ready for champagne on the Eiffel Tower!!





Then I saw this beauty in the window, and I had to have it!! Yellow sinamay with flowers surrounding the brim. Could it get any sweeter??



Excitingly, I had an opportunity to try it out at a wedding that evening! Love it!!


This darling striped straw isn't vintage ("I got it at Ross"), but it definitely has classic charm! It'll keep those Positano rays off my face and shoulders, while still being oh-so stylish! And look...

Nine West
...it matches this fashionable lady! Hehe!


And who could resist a straw cloche with a black bow?? Especially when it reminds me so much of one Gina Lollobrigida wore?!



Isn't it wonderful when you find what you've been searching for?? Now if I can just stumble upon a poodle sweater pin...

  2. Thank you! I love vintage hats! Especially when they are on sale. Hehe! The dress is at least 6 years old, 'cause I'm a clothes hoarder; which is a good thing when you get a new hat and you need a dress last minute to match! ;) I put it on and thankfully it zipped up!! HA! (It's from Vivien of Holloway online.)

  3. My husband loves me in a hat but they sort of get on my nerves when I wear one! :)

    1. I have the opposite problem; I love wearing hats, but my husband isn't super fond of them! ;)

    1. Hi! I love hats and wish I had more, but I'm not very good at styling my hair with them. You just haven't found the right hat yet! 😉
