Oh, temptress.

Oversized grey fedora

White top hat with feathered pin.

Black newsboy cap.

These hats cry to come home with me.

I.

Must.

Resist.

Oh!

Purple cloche,

how adorable you are;

you are

entirely

irresistible.

Fine.

I give up.

I’ll wear you home.

The Irresistible itself, a “Canadian 1918 Hat”

A cloche hat always makes me feel like I’m channeling Phryne Fisher! 🙂

  1. Looks great. Purple is my favorite color. I have collected hats for years and still have most of them harbored in hat boxes or on stands, ready for an outing.

  2. It matches you well!
