Vintage from Head to Toe

Much as I love vintage dresses, suits and coats, sometimes it's all about the accessories. Today we feature hats and shoes recently added to Past Perfect Vintage. And in a departure, none of them are black! First up - a great brown felt 1940s hat with brass studs and a lot of attitude. This menswear fedora style crown is paired up with a studded frond? leaf? shape with the added inducement of a veil. The metaphors are decidedly mixed.

Then we have a pair of brilliantly striped silk pumps from that grand Northern Kentucky estate. Let it never be said there weren't stylish shoes in Ky. Barefoot? That's a sad,bad,tired old cliche. And finally, a trim little orange (!) beaded pillbox hat from William H. Block's in Indianapolis.
