My Love Affair with Hats

   I love, love beautiful and colorful hats! Honestly, I don't wear them as I did when younger, however, I still have that special feeling about them.
  Women have adorned themselves with beautiful head-dress from back-in-the-day until now. I admire a woman who can wear and look good in the fashionable hats of today...because some of them, shall I say, are quite...wild! Those that are termed "church" hats have gotten to be quite colorful as well.

Admittedly, I really had a love affair with the "cloche". Even now, I find myself pulling one down from the closet to try it know...checking myself out in the mirror. LOL.  Well, that's as far as it goes these days. That reflection that comes back to me isn't the same as that youthful, demure, look of earlier times, honestly.
Here are some beautiful cloche...they are quite stylish:

 There's an art to wearing a cloche. It fits closely with a floppy brim...the hat is designed to be worn low on the forehead and structured so that you must tilt your head and peer down your nose to see...This gives the wearer a slightly...haughty look.

 The cloche was quite popular during the 20's, but are slowly making their way back into fashion. This handmade one is adorned with flowers, buttons, etc. I love the colors.

 Let's face it ladies, we wear what make us look and feel good! If the latest fashionable hat is the ticket, then wear it and wear it well!  
 Southern women are known for doing so, I suppose taking a cue from our neighbors across the ocean...wearing hats for the sake of wearing hats. Well, if you are going to be fashionable as others... always choose the best, right? If the hat fits...    Enjoy!

Have a super weekend and love love your family and friends! Give your pet a hug from us! Love You Softly!



  1. Those are beautiful, and I loved that in England they wear hats to events regularly! I think that is so elegant!

  2. Hello Loretta, Happy Pink Saturday! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Love your post this week, these hats are fabulous!

  3. I love these vintage hats. Not everyone can carry these off, but they sure look good on the right person. Thanks so much for sharing them.

  4. You've got some beautiful hats here! I like hats...mostly on other people, he-he. One Easter when I was 9 or 10, my mom bought my sister and I matching hats. They were sort of a cloche style but with ribbons going down the back and daisies on the end of those ribbons. Well, I thought it was absolutely ridiculous! I hated that hat! Of course, my sister loved hers, but her head was a totally different shape than my pumpkin head. That put me off hats for quite a while. But I think there's a hat for everyone, you just have to find the right style. Of course, here it's all about warmth this time of year. You should see the hat I just bought for winter. Definitely NOT stylish, but kind of funny/cute and WARM.

  5. I love hats. I have never been big on wearing too many of the fashionable ones, but I love looking at them. I have a book on hot to make all different types of hats for my dolls. I hope to get to that project soon. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I have a sore throat and it's hard to swallow, so I won't be able to enjoy Sunday dinner like I normally do.

  6. I love hats too! My favorite part of the royal wedding was the hats. The ones you posted are adorable!
