I don't really like purple all that much...

...but purple likes me. So here I am, in one of my purple hats.


It's a vintage TinaLuxe that I bought on Ebay. The body is doeskin felt, made in the USA by the Bollman Hat Co, and the band is velvet. It used to have black netting that covered the crown, but I thought the hat was a little too sporty for a veil, so I removed the netting.

I agree...too sporty for a veil, but perhaps perfect for a feather instead?

I like some of the feather pins Jane has made over at Glorious Hats. Maybe one will inspire you.

The hat is terrific, even as it is right now. You look great in it!
