I bring you a Trio of Hats in Black and Cream with a theme of three. Three decades,three materials, three silhouettes. Its a bit of a no brainer, but the best I can do with the post-Christmas cold.
First up, a Teens Mourning Bonnet in black silk crepe with jet trim and ostrich tips. Not a cheerful hat, but a stylish one.
Second, a 1950s cream wide-brimmed summer straw with navy velvet ribbon from the St. Louis department store Famous-Barr Co. An Easter Sunday hat perhaps? Maybe a summer lunch. If you are like we are about old local department stores, you can find more about Famous-Barr here.
And third, a grand 1940s summer garden party straw hat with horsehair ruffle and wide grosgrain ribbon streamers with the New York Creation and Lecie Originals labels.
