Getting Somewhere ...

Wearing  ... 50s blazer: Fräullein Anders Shop, Berlin // early 40s dress: thrifted years back //  40s shoes: eBay // 50s purse: flea market // 40s hat: flea market // Lauscha grape brooch: flea market

Finally my hat collection is getting somewhere. This year I really found some pieces I was longing for so badly and most of them I found this summer starting with our trip to the US. From there I send home a huge box with safely packed hats from the 40s and 50s ... most of them need a little TLC but all are wearable and unique. Shortly after our return from the States I came across a couple of late 30s hats (read here) at one of my regular sellers stall at one of my regular Sunday's flea markets - I got both for less than a song. They were kind of dirty, covered with stains - so I had to brush the dirt off both hats for hours. Now they look fine.
The next weekend we went to a big flea market in Leipzig. There I found another motherload of vintage hats that I ever wanted ... This huge black felt beret from the 40s is probably homemade and is one of them.
I have to confess, my collection got a little out of hand, and I had to cut down, as hats need to be stored with love, care and a little room. During the past months I already started to sell some of my vintage hats on my tiny Etsy Store and on the Vintage Market.  I just can't keep them all.

Yours 40’s style hat is so unique and goes beautifully with the way you have styled your hair. Isn’t it fun to build a hat collection? Thank you for participating in Hat Attack!
