I have made a tough decision. I am parting with two of my most absolute favorite vintage hats, that I never have actually worn except for pictures. I do enjoy wearing hats as accessories (and think everyone should help revive this wardrobe accent!) but I always seem to wear "darker" ones in browns and black. These beauties deserve a truly loving home where they can breathe a little fresh air and enjoy perching on some lovely head... instead of waiting patiently in a hat box in my closet. Sigh.
I am keeping (for now) this "dark" hat.... it's a real true Lilly Dache!!!! Eeeeee! It's black velvet with white leather trim and fits so comfortably. I'm diggin' the almost Amish vibe of it; that's what it makes me think of anyway. I had to keep blinking when I found it and looked at the label. Stoked.
Etsy is such a great resource for vintage hats, and modern crafted ones as well. I catch myself searching all the time for more. My absolute favorite hat shop on Etsy is Emilliner; every one is jaw dropping and finely detailed. The photography (shown below) is gorgeous as well. Oh!
Moral of the story - Hooray for hats!!!
