What The Hat Lady wears in winter

Since I own The Vintage Hat Shop, I am often known around town as "The Hat Lady". You would think that every time I am out and about I would be wearing a vintage hat. Ahhhh, not so. Especially in this blustery weather up North this year.
When I am on my way to the post office for a hat mailing this is often my outfit of choice--

Fuchsia cloche hat, worn at a tilt. Plaid Cashmere scarf, made in Scotland.

Add my long warm faux fur trimmed coat. And I'm off!

Art Deco hat, 1931 Pictorial Review Advertisement

I know the gal in the Pictorial Review is worried about her underarm odor and using the proper perspiration preparation as referenced in the advertisement for Ordorono. But I am just loving her hat! So classy art deco.

Vintage calote, calotte or Juliet caps. Vintage hats 1920s-1940s.

Calotte hats are rounded and fit close to the head. The capulet hats are also known as a Juliet cap, as in Romeo and Juliet-- Juliet's last name was Capulet. The skullcaps were popular in the 1920s through the 1940s and were made with a variety of materials and styles. Sometimes the hat had a stem on center top, a veil or a snood.

Take a look at the at the calot in the vintage advertisement  for Chesterfield cigarettes --

Some calottes are listed in The Vintage Hat Shop-
