An Etsy collaboration

This beautiful hat reminds me of a bygone era, of Barbara Stanwyck and dames who didn't take no guff. It was hand blocked by Emily of Moesewco, an Etsy shop that specializes in hats and embroidered goodies. Emily's hats are made entirely by hand, finished to the last detail, and in this case that included a pin by Callooh Callay!

Emily purchased one of my favorite pins to adorn this beauty, a popular item in my shop and one that I really hated to let go (as sometimes happens). It's made of three vintage buttons, a dark, mottled brown base with scalloped edges; a lovely light mauve button with a raised, swirled design; and a mother of pearl in the midddle.

Visits moesewco's Etsy site for a closer look at this hat and others, and visit their website, Discriminating Weirdos, for a fascinating look at the hat blocks Emily uses (and the ones she covets).
