Top Notch Top Hats

In case you hadn't caught on yet, I recently realized that I absolutely adore the Mad Hatter as portrayed by Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. And once I had realized just how amazing he is, I started appreciating the merit of a fabulous hat. 

So today, in celebration of madness and extravagance and living in the moment, I am going to share a selection of wonderful top hats I found while obsessively trawling Etsy.

This first one is by OlgaItaly, and I find myself drooling over it. It is a perfect example of a hat a person could wear everywhere. Personally, I think it would look great with a simple pencil skirt and sweater for grocery shopping, or with something crazier for a night out.

 I'm seriously in love with this beauty by Gypsy Lady Hats. A hat both amazing and extremely versatile (it's black and white, it will go with anything!) and with beautiful curves? So rare!

This next one, also by Gypsy Lady Hats,  appeals to my darker side. I have dreams involving this hat, a lot of eye makeup, stunning red lips, a sexy black dress and possibly a cigarette. I don't smoke, but the netting reminds me of how beautiful a haze of smoke can look in a picture.

Yet another beauty by Gypsy Lady Hats,  this one I see more perched a top a sleek bun, crowning a powerwoman outfit: sexy but modest black suit, crimson silk blouse, and black Louboutins, with that little red sole peeking out.

And last but certainly not least, a truly over the top masterpiece by Envyart. The creepy doll faces, the netting, the fur?, all of it, it just calls to me!

Which hat is your favourite? Would you wear a top hat as a part of an "everyday" outfit?

Love, Rosie


  1. OOoOoOoOoO i love them!! so cute i would wear ANY anyday! but my fav is the black and white pin stripe!

  2. Like the first one the best, but it's not my style so I wouldn't wear any of them ;)


  3. Wow, they're beuatiful, but I probably wouldn't wear one to my job or something, but maybe at a party :D

  4. I love these, I want to wear more hats, though more of the floppy sun hat variety (though these would make some pretty epic day wear)
