The best repro flapper hat I've seen

You've got the perfect 1920s hairstyle, but now you need a flapper hat to go with it — where do you look?

Although I was able to find a real 1920s cloche for my wedding, they are actually pretty difficult to find. Good reproductions can be almost as hard to come by. So when I saw this reproduction flapper hat on eBay, I knew my readers would be interested! Isn't it beautiful...and so authentically 1920s?

This hat would look absolutely adorable with a 1920s hairstyle such as a bob or finger waves. I love how the hair on the model just peeks out from underneath.

The colors are great for a wedding, too — you could put your bridesmaids in mocha-colored flapper dresses to match the trim on the hat! But hurry — the auction for the hat ends on May 28, 2008!

The designer is Berti Borrell of Cloche Couture. I mentioned her once in a post about finding 1920s hats. I absolutely LOVE Berti's work. Her hats might seem a little pricey at first glance, but when you consider that they're all one-of-a-kind designer hats, not to mention how difficult (and expensive!) it is to find the real thing in wearable condition, they're really quite reasonable.
