I currently have a hat obsession which has led me down a internet rabbit hole.  I found these beauties on the V & A database, and while they may not be hats or head pieces that I would consider wearing to Palm Springs this weekend they’re still ones to admire.  On second thought, I am celebrating my 5-year wedding anniversary so that calls for something a little over-the-top, right?
