Vintage Hat Friday

Happy Friday!

Today’s hat is a sweet little toque that reminds me of a layer cake. Or a fancy energy dome if you’re a Devo fan :o)

It’s completely hand sewn with layers of vintage straw and netting. There are some holes in the netting but they don’t distract from the hat at all. An interesting pyramid-shaped Aurora Borealis rhinestone embellishment sits at the front. The maker is Helen Brounet, California. I’m guessing early 1960s. It’s for sale in my Etsy shop.

Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool under a wide-brimmed hat!
