Hello!

Welcome to my blog! I'm Kathryn and I blog about  fusing Vintage and modern Fashion together to create a unique style. I am also passionate about slowing down the fast fashion industry  and hope to encourage others to do likewise through my posts showcasing  my personal style through the vintage and thrifted items that I have sourced.

This hat a vintage designer gem is a style that crossed from late 1920's -1930's but is very similiar to the pure style of a 1920's clouche! Love it!

So hopefully I'm slowly luring the non-hat wearing amongst you around to my way of thinking...................Ha ha!

Continuing with the history bit, during the first half of the  19th century the Bonnet dominated womens hat fashions. These hats were enormous and were extravagantly embellished. Sometimes tastelessly so!!!

By the mid 1920's hair styles began to change, which subsequently altered the way in which hat styles were worn.  Hair was being worn shorter in a Bob style which was a short style cut at jaw length. This merited a whole new hat design and Hey Presto! the Cloche was born. One of my favourite hat styles of all time , its design has a timeless modern beauty, even today. This style proved hugely popular and was worn close to the skull and hugged the head in a most flattering and simple way and was further complimented by a small brim.

What are your favourite hat styles? Do let me know. I'll continue out little TEA PARTY tomorrow. Ha ha!    XXXX Violinkit   In the meantime............
