Hats Are Back!

Is it just me or are women starting to wear more hats again? I've been noticing more and more hats lately - especially in church on Sundays.

When I was a little girl, I often wished I was big enough to wear hats to church like my mom did. Oh, sure, I had my new Easter outfit every year, complete with hat and matching handbag, but it just wasn't the same as those sexy little hats with feathers and nets or the wide brimmed hats with ribbons and flowers. I remember being fascinated by the process of making hats, too. My mother and her friends would gather together some afternoons with all their millinery forms and flowers and make the most beautiful hats. If I was lucky there were scraps that I could glue together for my dolly.

As you might imagine, I have a weakness for lovely hats and can't help myself when I come across some nice vintage specimens. Expect Wellers to always have at least a small selection of vintage millinery and accessories on hand.

  1. It's not just you, Eileen. I have also noticed some really nice hats. I think more people are using them to avoid the sun as well as for being stylish.
