Oh So Retro Beret & Hand Bag / 1940's a one of a kind pattern for sure. Unfortunately it is missing the "Hat" but the beret and bag are uncut and ready to go. Frankly IMO that hat is too boring to bother with - that kitschy little beret is the bee's knees. Don't wear it in a strong wind or even bend over - it would be terribly undignified to be chasing it down the street. Oh wait - is this where hat pins came in?

Are hats back in fashion? Did they ever go out? The only time I wear a hat is when I have to. In the sun (that dang Irish skin sunburns badly) or to keep my hair from turning into dredlocks when on the motorcycle or off roading. Only in the movies do ladies take hats off and their hair looks "perfect" -
