The Hat

I can't remember how many times I've been trying to find the perfect vintage hat on eBay. This time I'm after a little beret hat (black one), like Dita's hat on this photo - hello trés chic? We all dream about Stephen Jones's magic creations and some of you might have seen his famous hats in London at the V&A Museum. I never went to the museum, instead I visited his little store in Covent Garden. Ring ring (I had to ring on a bell to get in...), open the door.. I saw a beauty in front of me - the "Dita-hat" in a smaller version! I tried it on (perfection hat no.1) and I wish it was easier to pay £300-400 for a little hat just like that but it isn't. I know what I want under my Christmas tree this year...
