Vivian’s Fave Hats: U V W

This has been an amazing project. We have one more post following this one, and that will complete the alphabet.

Again, Vivian has selected some very pretty headwear for us today. There is a bonus hat too. Let’s go!

Classic Hat

This hat is stunning. The colour combination is so chic, and we love the safari vibe.

Viveca Hattingdon.

Fashion Hat

This hat was created in July 2016 and is in the top twenty all-time most popular hats. It may even be in the top ten, which is amazing. Hattingdon has 100s of hats now, so there is a lot more competition.

That butterfly is still mesmerized by the button.

Bonus Hat

This hat hardly ever gets an outing and it is so darling and fun. It is goes way back to Vivian’s earliest days. It was so long ago she cannot remember the year. A good possible guess is 2010.

Vivian named the hat Vita. Vita is a feminine name derived from the Latin word meaning life. If this hat does not give you a “hatful of smiles”, nothing will.

Where does she come up with these ideas? Hattingdon looks good in green doesnt she?

See you back here tomorrow with Vivian’s final picks.

Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter I

Hello there and welcome.

When Vivian went to select hats for this post she was astonished to find that we did not have a single hat beginning with the letter “I”. She had to address that right away.

Vivian created two brand new hats! She named the classic hat Ivy and the fashion hat Ilona.

Classic Hat

Ivy Hattingdon.

What a lovely hat. Look at this one!

Fashion Hat

Ilona Hattingdon.

What do you think? Isn’t she a doll? It has a Roaring 20’s sort of vibe going on doesn’t it?

And the name Ilona? Wikipedia (the fount of all knowledge) states:

‘Ilona is a common name in Finland, where it is considered to refer to the Finnish word ilo (“joy”) and ilona literally means “as a joy [to someone]”. It is also common in Latvia, Estonia, France, Lithuania and Poland (formerly in crown union with Hungary).’

Bye for now. See you again soon.

Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter A

Hello there and Happy New Year.

We thought it would be fun to see which hats Vivian would select as her favorites — from A to Z. We asked her to choose both a classic hat and a fashion hat beginning with each letter of the alphabet.

Here is the hats she selected beginning with the letter A.

Classic Hat

First up is a Classic Hat of gray and white stripes featuring a row of three burnt orange chevrons on the front of the crown. Design name Alexa.

Alexa Hattingdon.

Fashion Hat

This design has always been one of Vivian’s all time favorites: a cross-banded turban in fuschia pink, teal, orchid, leafy green and a marmalade orange. Design name Anita.

See you again soon! With Love, Hattingdon & Co.

7 Hats of Christmas: Day 7

Here we are, on Day 7, our final post of the series. This design is just so fun . . . and oh so Christmassy.

Absolutely everyone adores this hat. No doubt about it — Vivian outdid herself. Here it is!

Macy Hattingdon Christmas hat.
Macy Hattingdon

Created in 2013, and released in 2017, Macy is the most popular Hattingdon Christmas hat of all time.

This hat would do very well for Boxing Day tomorrow too . . . . in a way. What is Boxing Day?

Rounded Open Quote in Gray

“Boxing Day is held every December 26th in many countries associated with the British empire,” states the BBC. “The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants — a day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.”

From all of us to all of you, we wish you a very, merry Christmas. Love, Team Hattingdon.

Flashback Jacey

Another Flashback Friday. And here is the design we have chosen for you — all the way back to 2008. The absolutely gorgeous Jacey Hattingdon.

Jacey is one of the earliest hat designs Vivian created, and one of her all time favourites.

We hope it brings you a “hatful of smiles”. Best wishes, and thank you for stopping by.
