A Tale Of Two Hats


On a warm Autumn morning two hats sat in their
place in the closet , just waiting for an outing.

These hats had travelled far across the ocean to their
new home in Tasmania.  




On this particular morning their owner 
could not decide which of the hats to choose,
so both hats came out to play.


They visited a now almost deserted semi-industrial 
where they perched happily on their new owners head.
adding a touch of whimsy to her black and white outfit.



Black pixie hat is from the 1950's 
and  the name alone takes me
back to another time .




This little hat in red and green
is labelled Gwen Pennington, New York,
and I am told is 1930's.
I love its shape , colours  and
the various bows on the side
and that it can be worn in a 
multitude of ways.

We are joining all the other
wonderful hats with Judith at Hat Attack
and Seeker at Tres Chic Style Bits.

  1. Perfect - if you can't decide, take them both! I love the details on that red and green one - it's unusual. But I think your bag is my favorite thing in this outfit. I love the color, size and shape. I'd have a thousand handbags if I wasn't too lazy to swap things from one to the other!

    1. A sentiment I use way too often, Val. Changing bags does have its problems, changed today, left the phone at home, oh well.

  7. Wonderful vintage toppers! I tend to agree that the red and green chapeau is likely from the 30s, though it could be 40s, too. No matter the precise date, it's s delightful gem of a hat and one that really looks beautiful nestled into your golden-red locks.
