Topsy Turvy Hatties


To say that millinery is dead in these drab modern times, is to assume you have never seen a Topsy Turvy hat. And once you do there is no turning back.
I stumbled upon Kim Dyes shop a few months ago when browsing Etsy for hats, stunned at the pure dreamlike design each one holds. Her designs are a flirtation of lush materials and vivid imagination, making you wonder why on earth people don't wear hats anymore. They're too pretty not to wear.

Her Shien hat inspired me to go all out for that 18th century hat a while back and I love The Beaux thanks to the mix of wings and wild ribbon wrapping about. Just recently have I seen her Flickr account, full of pretty photos of the modeled hats in fantastic settings, and also tons of happy customer pics that make me say "hey, where was I for this fun costume party?"

If you are looking for that stunning addition for a Halloween costume (it's right around the corner) then there is nothing better than a Topsy Turvy hat. So go on and pick one out before September 15th and you'll have it for your oh so fabulous costume. I also saw some fantastic bridal photos featuring the hats, which would be so great!

And since Kim is such a sweetie, she's offering Vixen Vintage readers 10% off your order between now and October 31st 2009. Just send her a little covo on Etsy letting her know Solanah sent you and which hat you want ;) She's more than nice to work with, and even if hats aren't your cup of tea she offers a variety of pretty clips and headbands.

Her hats are so beautiful. I've admired them for quite a while, especially those wonderful 18th century tricorns...and her photography is pure art. If only I could afford a splurge!

Ooohhh yeah. We added her to our flickr contacts a couple months ago. I've been swooning over her stuff ever since.

I have been drooling over her hats for months and months! I would love to buy one eventually for some over-the-top party (as if my life ever has over-the-top parties anymore! ;)!

I recommend you buy a hat. I bought the leather heart fascinator, I got so many comments. Hey Sailor on etsy, makes some great hats. I picked up one in the sale, worth the investment.
