Vintage Thingies Thursday - Hats

These two stylish ladies are wearing a couple of my great-grandmother's hats. There are more of her hats "on loan" at my mom and uncle's houses until I can find a more suitable way to display them all (these ladies really freak my husband out)! We have several pictures of Grandma Alice in her hats during the 1920's through 1960's.

I love this navy hat with the tulle and flowers, also the way it sits on a lady's head.

I've always been a fan of hats with veils. I need to take this one to Stuhr Museum, and ask the ladies there if they know of a way to fix the hole in the veil.

You never see ladies out in their hats and white gloves anymore. Maybe we should see about bringing that style back...

  1. I used to have some hats like that in my dress up box. I wish I had appreciated them more!!

  2. I love vintage hats! When I was bald from chemo (3 times!) I would wear them sometimes!

  3. Vintage hats are one of my favorite vintage things ever, and these are lovely. I like the one with the veil in particular.

  4. love the hats. I used to have one, but I think it was damaged and I got rid of it. Yours are really nice.

  5. Beautiful hats-your grandmother was a very elegant woman. A few years ago, I went on a tour of the Royal Needlework Society's Conservation Lab in England and they were "fixing" an antique wedding veil by sewing in by hand the missing parts. The Stuhr Museum seems like just the right place for help.

  6. It's neat how hats and gloves gave a finishing touch to ladies outfits.

  7. These are some terrific hats, I hope
    you find someone to repair the veil.
    I can't wait to see the next batch
    of lovely lady hats!

  8. They're gorgeous!!

  9. I love vintage hats. These two are lovely, and all the more meaningful because they belonged to your great grandma.


Thanks for stopping by!
