    I spent about a full hour rummaging through an antique store's walk-in vintage closet yesterday.
    I realized I'm jonesing for a nice cloche hat (it's the only kind that suits me, well that and a fedora), and even the fancy kind with over the top feathers and twisty things sitting on a little bun. I think I can pull off the couture look...

    Here's one by Eugenia Kim that I completely adore....I'm still waiting for a reply from her store if they have stockists here in LA. My credit card info got stolen last July while I was on vacation, so I'm a little paranoid about making online purchases. No matter how credible and trustworthy an establishment is, some dishonest, fraudulent hacker will try to intercept and steal your $$$ no matter what...but that's another completely different topic.

    Anyway, here it is. More photos will follow...I wanna see fun, fanciful hats so do share! :flower:

    I posted this in another section. Sorry to be posting again... I wasnt sure where to post it.

    Hi.
    I was just wondering if anyone knows what designer made this hat or where I can get one exactly like it? It has to be exact & pink too. Im really picky about this one lol.

    I thought it might be vintage when I first saw it on Liv but then I saw it on Kylie in a cream color so Im thinking its designer but WHO?

    Heres a couple pictures of the hat...

    I know the hat you're talking about Tiff (of course ;)) and I also saw it on Sarah Jessica Parker in an episode of Sex and the City.. Still no clues as to who the designer is though :unsure:

    Hey. :lol:

    It is by Missoni I guess. I have seen the one on the Missoni website & I dont think it looks exactly like the one Liv has but who knows.

    I dont think I want it anymore though lol... since I found out it was worn on Sex in the City. :yuk:
    I dont want anyone coming up to me thinking Im wearing it because of that show or Sarah Jessica Parker. No, no, noooooooooooo YUCKY. :lol:

    It was adorable on liv though... what a shame. :(

    Maybe Ill get one like it later after all the popularity from SitC is gone. ;)

    We're going to this party on Saturday evening, and I've just found out that it's a '...wear a hat party'. All of my hats, bar, berets and winter woolies are packed up at home, another country. So I'm thinking of making a hat. Prob from cardboard. :wacko:

    Does anyone have any sites or recommendations? :ninja:

    I've got a couple of days :unsure: to make something

    I attended a hat party a month ago, and I was in the need of a hat, cause I have a lot of colorful fedoras, but I wanted something funkier...so, I made an oversized gold beaded beret, that took me like two days to hand bead :doh: but the results were awesome, and , to top it off, I sold it the day after to a friend who loved the hat at the party :lol:

    You can probably find something cool at a thrift shop. Most of my hats that I didn't personally make I bought secondhand. I have two awesome vintage Stetson tweed hats, a couple of those dinky little 1950s beanies with flowers and veils, and an awesome 1940s ladies' velour Homburg with colored feathers in the hatband. The most I ever paid for a hat was $20 for that 1940s hat. Since hardly anyone ever wears hats anymore, they tend to be very affordable at thrift and vintage shops.
