I stumbled across an Etsy shop the other day that I wanted to share.  The shop is called “Ms. Purdy’s Hats.”  Ms. Purdy has a lovely collection of attention-getting Victorian-style hats, from the broad-brimmed types you might see on Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady” to the cheeky mini-top hats popular among Steampunks.  They’re all gorgeous, but here are a few of my favorites.


Thankfully I do live in a state where I could potentially find a horse-race-centric use for a spectacular hat like this.


I love the color of this one.


This is a great “Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler” hat.


This photo doesn’t do justice to this hat – the other views better show the variation of color in the feathers and other details.


Perfect for tea parties or Downton Abbey dress up!

(Sigh) Have we discussed how much I wish people still wore hats?  I think we have.  Anyway, check out Ms. Purdy!


Last one!  Can’t help it…so beautiful…!
