Stock Market Cloche

Our economy is sad right now - a lot of people are saying that we're experiencing a downturn on par with the crash of 1929. Bummer! However, I would encourage everyone to see this glass as half full - the aesthetic vibe of the 1920s is, in a word, unbeatable!

Exhibit A: our friend Rachel hipped us to this gorgeous cloche from Etsy seller liza rietz.







How elegant and snug this little number is! How delightfully ruched! (On an unrelated note, where can I find a scarf that so perfectly matches my eyes, a la the model?)

Which of the four colorways do we like best - black, navy, camel, or herringbone? Liza's recession-friendly price ($42 for a custom-fit hat: be still my heart!) makes getting more than one a definitive possibility ...

I'm a big sucker for herringbone, but the zig zag underlay on the black/camel also gives me pitter patters! If I could go totally custom I'd want a burgandy or possibly hunter green with the zig zag. (probably less than 6 months ago I was thinking how burgandy and hunter green were TOOOooOOO burnt out in the 90s but omg I'm totally starting to think about them these days, along with vivid royal blue after so many years of avoidance.)
