  1. I love hats and I think I would have looked fabulous back in the 40's. I actually had a collection of 40's, 50's hats, but they disappeared whilst moving.

  2. Yeah thingy, I think I would have looked pretty hot as well. Unfortunately, you still have to do your hair with those hats, and I don't think my ponytail would cut it.

  3. thank you for the kind mention/link! very much appreciated, as I really enjoy your blog and all the links you feature.
    Best, :D

  4. Thanks Kristina! I've always been fascinated by the role paintings--and art in general--play in classic films. It was a great idea for a post.
