Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter P

Hello there. Our journey through the alphabet continues. Welcome to the Letter “P”.

Vivian has selected two vintage hats this time around. Let’s go!

Classic Hat

Our first offering is a smart black and tan hat created in Hattingdon’s distinctive classic silhouette. Vivian named the design Paige.

The Paige hat features alternating stripes of black and tan and white, that partially extends to the crown, which is adorned with a coordinating button.

A very smart look. She can go just about anywhere in this hat.

Fashion Hat

This is one of Vivian’s earliest designs and an all-time favourite of hers and Hattingdon followers — a colorful mod cap she named Peggy.

The hat is made up of sections of lime green, bright orange and raspberry pink, patterned with white floral inspired shapes and rings. It has a lime green brim and capped off with a bright orange button.

Vivian adds, “I so love the shape of the hat, the design and the colorful decoration. It is bright and fun and cheery, and makes me feel happy. I had the Peggy design on a tote bag for many years, and it was absolutely amazing the attention it got.”

Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter M

It is amazing we are virtually halfway through the alphabet already. There is still plenty of fun and lovely hats ahead.

We have two very different hat styles. A very pretty classic hat and a dramatically fun headdress.

Classic Hat

The Melonie classic hat is a striped confection made with the deliciously soft colours of lemon, lime and a gorgeous cantaloupe. There is more to it.

Fashion Hat

Feel like a bit of drama? Then you will enjoy Marlee.

The Marlee headdress features a trio of acid green roses accompanied by trailing vines mirroring the same colours.

Thank you for spending time with us. We hope we bring you a “hatful of smiles”.

Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter F

Greetings and salutations.

Hattingdon had a fashion hat beginning with the letter “F” named Fleur, but not a single classic hat. Then Vivian discovered that the artwork for the fashion hat is . . . gone! Where to, who by, who knows.

Vivian saw this an opportunity to have some creative fun. She decided to reimagine the Fleur design — both as a classic hat and a fashion hat. They are colorful, fun and quite stylish. We trust you will agree. Look!

On to the fashion hat, which is equally scrumptious.

Fashion Fleur

Instead of featuring the blossom as a pattern, Vivian used as an adornment. Here she is.

We hope you love them as much as we do, and they bring you a “hatful of smiles”.

Hattingdon loves wearing ballcaps. This may be her favorite. The “Amani” ballcap.

Amani Hattingdon

The name Amani is from the Swahili — meaning peace. It also means “wishes” in Arabic.

Additionally, Amani is also a place on the island of Chios, in Greece.

Hattingdon just had to have a new hat and decided on an Autumn inspired one (although she already has the darling Asher Top Hat). Here it is, named a just a bit predictably (smile) . . . Autumn.

We have two versions of her new Fall leaf crown hat. Which one do you prefer? The one beginning with the gold leaf or green leaf?
