Vintage Hats - 1949

I've been thinking a lot about hats lately. My first bit of inspiration came from Jean and Valerie, the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas. I found their blog a couple of weeks ago while clicking around from here to there and was immediately entranced. I bookmarked the site and came back to it early one morning when the house was quiet and the sun was just starting to come up. Jean and Valerie delight me, and their blog has now become ensconced in my links list to your right.

Hats, hats, Easter bonnets. Wide brimmed hats like this are a harbinger of Spring, aren't they? Even though it is still cold here in Boston, the sun is becoming stronger again, and I can see the beginnings of buds on the cherry tree outside my office window. Warmer weather is on it's way, I can feel it. And in honor of the spring to come, enjoy these gorgeous chapeaux from Spring 1949.

I have two giant hats like this that I picked up in vintage stores 8-10 years ago. I have worn both of them, although not recently. I love wide-brimmed hats!

I wish hats were more a part of everyday sportswear like they used to be- so fab!

Thanks-I am now thinking about Spring and wondering what to wear for my Easter Bonnet. What is your opinion about straw or flowers when it is officially spring but there is still snow on the ground? Easter is not quite as early as it can be but it does seem like a perennial conumdrum of the fashionista varietal especially as hats are no longer the wardrobe essentials they once were.

Gorgeous hats! I wish I could pull those off.

I love hats but I always look like I raided my grandmother's closet when I try to wear them
