A Love of 40s Hats That Might Take Counseling

I seem to have a slightly obsessive atraction to 1940s tilt top hats. Percher hats if you will. AKA doll hats. I don't have any idea why. There are many things I am attracted to in clothing that I would never wear which date back to a young exposure to Barbie in 1962. We won't g there now. Too time consuming.

But this 1940 hat thing. A puzzle. Straw is nice, flowers are good , too. But it's the felt ones I seem unable to leave out in the world. And if they have felt flowers - well it's into a shopping bag and get out the checkbook, honey! They are chic, yet tailored, feminine, and truly lend an air of self assurance. Here's sample of my addiction:

Such a marvelous collection. Perhaps someone runs a group session for those of us with this addiction.
