13 4 09

I have always been a lover of hats, but have never been able to indulge in this affection because my head does not seem to agree with the hats I put on it! They always end up looking awkwardly perched and just not quite right. I do, however, still like to look at all the beautiful vintage millinery that is out there - purely for the wonderful craftsmanship, if nothing else.

These are so lovely! I so rarely wear the hats I own...they do tend to slip/be so bold!

Ohhh, I feel the same way about hats, they're no good on me. Beautiful picks though! x

What fantastic hats! I keep collecting great vintage hats but I always end up feeling too costumey when I try to wear them. Glad to see I'm not the only one who can't quite make them work.

Oh I love hats. I have a small collection of netted hats. I have one in particular I have been dying to wear, but no place really to wear it. I love the velvet pink one you featured. Outstanding!
