Hats Off to Hats

A while ago (quite a while ago, now) I mentioned that someone (I can't remember who it was and I feel terrible) had suggested it might be a nice idea to do a post on my hats. Well, I'm finally getting around to it!

My hat collection
This is pretty much my whole collection of hats. I did forget a large black and white polka dot sun-hat and a sailor hat, though. I've added notes to this photo on flickr.

And here are some outfits of mine which incorporate hats:

Easy Virtue
This hat is from Target but is clearly vintage inspired.

A night on the town [II]
1950s, purchased from etsy.

"The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside my mind"
Same as in previous outfit.

On the Avenue
1970s, Exclusive Vintage.

My newest hat!
1940s, Exclusive Vintage.

Where in the world is Andi B. Goode?
1970s, Exclusive Vintage.

Friday Night Dress
1950s, purchased from etsy.

Oct 3 2009
1950s (I think), The Way We Wear Fair.

Andi B. Goode is a Curious Cat
1950s, purchased from etsy.

I've made a flickr set of any of my uploads that have hats in them which you can see here.

On an unrelated note, I was also asked if I had any other ukulele videos. At the moment I only have one other (which I filmed last November, after only playing the ukulele for a month or so) but I may be uploading more in the future. I have a youtube channel, here.

Well, that entry was fairly light on text but it was fun to kind of 'showcase' my hat collection, which is growing very slowly (I spend most of my money on dresses and don't pay a lot of attention to other things when I go shopping). I think I need to incorporate hats into my outfits more often, though.

  2. So many beautiful hats, I esp like the black ones! Unfortunately my head is size XL so I never find any vintage ones that fit, boohoo.

  3. Lovely collection of hats! I love how you pair them with your anazing collection of clothes. I have a fondness for cloche hats myself. Fondness = addiction actually.

  4. Oh wow, this is wonderful!!!
    i love the way you've lain them all out like that, by colour. such a beautiful millinery rainbow (almost :))
    The hats really do complete those outfits. i think you have a wonderful collection that compliments your style to the t!

  5. oh wow these are all amazing. You certainlly do have tons of hats!!!


  6. Ah! lovely hats!
    I like hats and sometimes wear one myself!

  7. What lovely hats! I wish more people still wore hats. It's nice to know I am not the only one who still does though :)


  8. I wish I was more comfortable in hats.

  9. i only find hats that are supertiny and won't fit my head and my head ain't that big

  10. What a fabulous collection! I especially love the one you bought from The Way We Wear Vintage Fair - I wish I had the guts to wear something so extravagant. You work it so well!

  11. Great collection!! I am such a sucker for hats, I wish I was able to store more.

  12. It takes a lot of bravery to wear hats, in my opinion, but you do it so effortlessly

  13. oh wow, you have quite the clothing collection. I LOVE that V neck dress!

  14. Gosh, what a FABULOUS collection of hats! Yup, I'm a tad jealous. :P
