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…!
