I have always had a love of vintage fashion. My Grandmother had many antique items and the golden age movies we watched further inspired me. Hats have been worn by ladies all throughout history. As a covering to warm the head, protect the hairstyle or as a colorful accessory. Vintage etiquette articles suggest that it would be a disgraceful act for a Lady to venture out of the house without a hat or even gloves. I began collecting vintage hats several years ago with a hat I found at a yard sale for fifty cents and it's been an obsession ever since. I'm always on the look out for hats and fascinators to top my outfits off in perfect ladylike fashion. Here are a few of my favorites
