This is the first of what will be many posts showing my rapidly growing hat collection. Although I started this blog last week with 25 hats, I gained four on my birthday – meaning I only need one more until I get to 30! It’ll have to be a special one!

Today I’m displaying one of my favourite summer hats – it’s a black straw hat reminiscent of one Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, and I have to admit this it does make me feel ultra-classy.


You may have noticed that it’s being displayed on a hat stand – I actually got one for my birthday! Gone are the days of having to keep hats on my floor-drobe: I actually have my own hat stand! I’m very excited about this.20130826-233405.jpg

I love this hat because it’s perfect for keeping the sun off my face and shoulders, but more importantly it’s not too floppy. It keeps its shape well and this means it frames the wearer’s face. I got it at a vintage fair for £9 and it’s perfect!

Here’s a picture of the hat in action. I also happen to be wearing a 40s-style dress and sunglasses, so I’ve gone all out on the vintage!P1020571
