So, I’m going to continue on with my vintage passions. I actually had forgotten I had started this series, so to speak, until I looked at my recent posts. And I almost forgot that my post a week thing was going today. Eeek!
So, I never have been a huge hat fan. I like hats, especially ones from the 20’s to 50’s. Even some from the 60’s were pretty cool. But I don’t own any decent hats, and I can’t see as to where I would wear them. It’s not Britain by any stretch of the imagination here. I’m sure I would look pretty out of style if I wore one to town. Heck, I get enough comments on wearing heeled shoes.
Since the, I’ve fallen in love with cloche hats. Cloche, for any of you non-French speaking people, (no, I don’t really speak it so much as read it) means bell. And if you look at the way the hat is shaped, it looks like a bell.
They were only popular for a brief period of time, actual cloche hat styles, during the 20’s. They went through to about ’33, but then lost popularity as other styles became the rage. They have started making a comeback, and if you watch Hollywood, you will see some stars wearing them. Though personally, I find that most of the hats are not as pretty as the older styles.
But, I would wear a cloche hat. And at some point, I may get one for myself. It fits with me wearing scarves and heels and all things girly.
