Grandmother's Hat

I mistakenly typed the title of this post in a google search, and what pops up?  A variety of rose that looks very similar to the fabric roses on my head!  How awesome is that!!

I have been going through old photos, and I came across these.  Seeing them again made me bemoan the fact that there are so few opportunities to wear a lovely chapeau in this post-COVID19 world.

These photos were taken almost three years ago at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco; I find a museum is always a wonderful opportunity to wear a hat.

But I may just have to dust off the old hat box and pick something to wear, just because it's a Thursday.

Jacket:  Made by me, Vogue 9082
Skirt:  Made by me, McCall 2698
Hat:  Grandmother's
Earrings:  Vintage
Shoes:  Anne Klein "Foxie"


  1. THAT WAISTLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I do wear one hat I made every time I go out; I needed something with a bigger brim as summer sun hurts my eyes. I do love this one; a little Frida, a little like a midsummer headdress my grandmother had. I miss museums and the Legion of Honor. I love their courtyard. My sister and i took about a jillion photos of each other the last time we were there. I have one of them next to my desk right now.
