My new spring hats Inspired by the 20's and more modern facinators




I have been busy making some hats for my first show in May 4 & 5 at Montpelier Wine Festival in Orange VA. I have definitely been inspired by Dontown Abbey and Mr. Selfridge shows on television. I love the look of the turn of the century hats as well as those from the 1920's. Granted I am not a model but if they look good on me they will look fantastic on other people.
I also like the facinator styles that are catching on over here in the United States.

Hope you will come to the event and tell me you are a fellow blogger.  Talking about fellow bloggers I am going over to Not Dead Yet Style to see what everyone is talking about today. Not Dead Yet Style

  5. In my opinion certain hats are made for certain people.. I personally think the kind of hats that suits me has to be something in the same line of Panama, even Fedora could look funny on my head given some days. BUT you look great in these! I especially love the 20s inspired, has more character in my opinion :) Thanks for dropping by my humble blog, appreciate it :)
