Modern Styling With Vintage Hats

Inspired by Carrie Bradshaw, my daughter Natalie and I have been on a mission to find ourselves vintage fur hats.

When we get together (she's in Philadelphia and we're in Florida), we scour vintage shops and flea markets in search of discarded hats needing new homes.  Natalie's brown fur hat find:


I love this picture of her ~ so chic!

When we visisted her and our son-in-law, Daniel, recently, we stumbled into "vintage hat nirvana" in an old dress shop.  No, I didn't buy the hat I was modeling ~ a bit too Phyllis Diller for my taste ~ but I did get the one in my hands:


These are the ones we bought:


So fun!  The hunt, and of course, getting to spend the weekend with two of our favorite people.


Natalie also has a Carrie-inspired skirt:


I love this!  Think I'm going to have to dedicate an entire future blog post to this skirt!

I love trying on vintage hats at the store! I bought two a couple of months ago, I should check back and see if they have any new ones!

I remember when ladies and young girls wore hats to church every Sunday. What a fun way to spend time with your daughter. Love your hats!

Darling hats, you look very "Jackie.". I love the old hats and have purchased three, all pillbox style.

That hat looks great on you! Great find! My DD loves old hats, so I try to buy them when I find good ones.

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. That was so thoughtful of you!

As I said on the facespace - fabulous and you look beautiful! I have a mink headband that I love and wear. And a dark brown fur pillbox-ish hat too.

You'll have more chances to wear your hats in D.C!!!
