Spring Has Sprung!

And what better way to celebrate the first day of Spring than to feature some delectable vintage spring hats?  Here at Carmen and Ginger we just found a trio of beauties this past week, including a lovely Dior.  We decided to show some of them off, along with others in our inventory, and their cousins from 1955, as we prep them for listing in the shop.

This Mr. John dates to the 1960's and is quite the beauty!

Our Dior is a floaty chiffon turban - likely 1960's - in lovely spring colors!

We just love this one-size-fits all early 1950's Everitt Bucket Style Needlepoint hat!

Our Betmar is likely early 1970's and super mint!

This beauty has no tag.  Amazing quality though!  That embellishment on the front is stitched on and is not a brooch.  It includes molded glass stones and aurora borealis indicative of a higher end costume jewelry maker.  Any ideas on who may have produced this stunner?
