Hat Obsession: Minnesota Edition
I picked up three lovely hats in St. Paul, all at different locations.
The first, from the Junk Bonanza, looks far cuter on than it photographs. But for $8, I couldn't resist.
I picked up this incredible tilt hat at The Mall of St. Paul in Mirriam Park. At $20, this one was slightly more expensive but it's so cute on. I'm photographing all of these on my adhoc hat stand (a paper towel holder) because I want to wait until I'm dressed up to photograph myself wearing them.
Finally, at $50, this was quite the splurge. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know how frugal (read cheap) I am. However, the experience I had at Go Vintage was SO worth the premium. If you're ever in the St. Paul area and love *truly* vintage pieces, this is the shop to visit. I was in heaven with their selection of dresses starting from the turn of the century to the 1970s (the biggest representation seemed to be 1940s-1950s and early 1960s. The hats, were by far, my favorite part of the shop. They have the most gorgeous selection from the 1930s and 1940s. The store owner and his daughter indulged my hat trying-on and I left with this adorable number. An added bonus was when the store owner gave me a ride back into downtown since I had arrived by taxi!
