The Mad Hatteress

It's midnight, I can't sleep, and for some reason, I feel compelled to buy a hat.

Caterpillar: Who are YOU?
Alice: This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.


Help me choose which hat to buy so I can go back to sleep, or go down the rabbit hole.

Ah Nuit,

I think the Dorcas is your hat!

I may have to start with a little cloche and work my way up to something a little more dramatic. I am considering the Lena Horne, too.

Fall in the Park is adorable, but somehow I still can't see a beret without thinking of Monica Lewinsky. I guess I should be over that whole thing by now, but I can't imagine I'm the only one. I have a little black Persian lamb beret that sits mournfully on my dresser because it makes me feel like a White House intern when I wear it.

Thank you for your vote through the looking glass.

Purchase Gypsy, technically you could wear it to Tango in.

I thought about Gypsy, too! I am in a quandary now. There are too many that I like now so it is making me terribly indecisive. Thank you for your vote!

ooohh... look at the subtle peacock on the fabric of the gypsy! i love peacock.

i can totally see you in a cloche, your enormous eyes peeping out from under. :)

the flapper showstopper would look divine on a brunette, as black on black. (on lighter hair, it might be too costumy.)

I am paralyzed with indecision now.

But thank you for exorcising the spirit of Monica for the present moment.

I could also consider Faye Dunaway, who looks like a sultry angel in her beret:
