“Styled by Cinderella New York” – a classic wool brimmed hat with a sophisticated schoolgirl look. The crown is stamped “Berkshire – Mohn Brothers Co. 100% Wool”. Love the plaid ribbon band that forms a bow with streamers in the back. There is also a little elastic chin strap attached!
Picture this with a little suit, skirt and blouse, dress, or whatever you like. Hats were SUCH a big thing in the ’40s with imaginative and flattering styles. Some of them were way over-the-top, but this one is understated and just too cute. Look carefully for gems like this one.
