A lovely wool pillbox from the 60s. Creamy taupe is the only way I can describe the colour. It's one of those colours that looks different in different lights - sometimes beige, sometimes grey, sometimes cream, sometimes even slightly greenish......This is not the little Jackie O type pillbox on top of the head but rather a large full formed hat type pillbox. My fav part are the two HUGE silk tassels that hang down the right side. The hat is a little big for Divine Darling as it is a size large, but you can get the idea. Very very classy! Looks best worn slightly on a tilt with pazzaz! It has a little elastic to wear under the hair to keep it on - you need something because the tassels are quite heavy - a hat pin is helpful too. Looks great with a black coat.

    miKKo! It's not too late my dear. I wear this hat fairly often....to all sorts of places - church, the gingerbread house contest winners show, the coldest day of the year at the pub (I live in a small village where everyone goes to everything!) - to heck with youth, carpe diem luv!!!
