One thing I like to do after spending the day out in search of vintage treasures, is pick a favorite find of the day. Many times, or at least on really good days, this is a very hard task to do. Today, after such an amazing morning at an estate sale, this is definitely a difficult task. After much reasoning (and by reasoning, I mean me wishing to be a 1940’s movie star more than anything), I decided on this hat:
Mostly this hat was chosen as the vintage find of the day (and definitely a new addition to my personal collection) because I can imagine Rosalind Russel wearing this beauty in His Girl Friday and possibly Ingrid Bergman wearing it if only it had been winter in Casablanca. (Side note: both of those movies are a MUST see. Seriously, if you haven’t seen them yet, go watch them now. NOW!) It may be a bit silly to wish to be a 1940’s actress, but it’s one of my completely unrealistic dreams that I prefer to hold onto. Just look at the fashion:
How could you not dream of this? Because I daydream of this life consistently, there’s my find of the day.Ad lovingly borrowed from Vintage Style Files.
