1920's Downton Abbey Hat - Lady Josephine - Burgundy & Black
"He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of the rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced-or seemed to face-the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, it believed in you as you like to be lieve in yourself" F. Scott Fitzgerald's excerpt from "The Great Gatsby".
My favorite movie version of "The Great Gatsby" starred Robert Redford and was made in 1974.

Throughout the years, it has been one of the movies/stories that have inspired a lot of my hat designs.
Flapper Hat "Lady Josephine" will give you that same sense of believing in yourself. It's a darling cloche hat made of burgundy wool felt. This little cloche hat perfect to wear with your winter coat, to church or wedding or even to a flapper event. The cloche hat style is ageless and just a popular today as it was in the 1920's. Cloche is French for Bell; thus the bell shape. The embellishment is a black silk hat band and bow accented with a darling rhinestone buckle. A very classy and elegant cloche hat!
