The only thing we here at This Week’s Look adore more than vintage hats is a vintage hat sale. Poppycock Vintage on etsy is currently testing our post-holiday spending willpower with a fantastic sale through December 31. They have an incredible selection of vintage chapeaux, so reasonably priced, we may have no choice but to pawn all of the Christmas presents we received in order to buy them all.
This week, we have assembled for you a selection of our favorites from Poppycock’s etsy storefront, all on sale right now. Click on each image below to see the individual listing, and follow Poppycock on Facebook for regular sale announcements.

I apologize for my lengthy fashion blogging absence, but things got kind of heavy. My beloved brother Sean passed away suddenly at age 38, which is far too soon for anyone to leave, especially someone as amazing as him. When I left for D.C., and we still had hope that he would recover, I packed just enough to get me through a few days. Those days stretched into two weeks and I eventually found myself shopping for a dress to wear to his funeral.
And a vintage hat of course.
I want to express enormous gratitude to Nicholette Alexander, a wonderful seller on etsy who expedited the veiled hat below to me in D.C. so that I could have it in time for Sean’s funeral.
That said, “Nicholettes” (as she is known on etsy) is my featured seller this week. Similar to the one I purchased from her, Nicholettes has a number of stunning vintage hats (among other great vintage finds) available in her etsy shop right now, many of which come with free hat boxes!

Spotted at Target yesterday, some decent vintage-style cloches for $16. Not bad, Target, no bad. Unfortunately, they only come in one size and my head is on the small side. But hey, it’s what’s inside that counts, yeah? If you love this style, I recently found a nice crop of them on eBay and etsy. Click here to see them all.
It was the 1920s. The Great War was over, women won the vote, and the music of the Jazz Age empowered us to bebop our way through a period of sustained prosperity. Of course, women still had it tough, but we were beginning to assert our independence and break free from many sartorial and social restrictions. Indeed, our fashions reflected this new-found freedom. We wore looser, shorter clothes, bobbed our hair and discovered that make up isn’t just for prostitutes.
It was also during this time that the hairstyle known as the Eton crop (the short, slicked-down cut worn by Josephine Baker) became so popular. It is said that the Eton crop emerged during this time because it was the best hairstyle to show off the trendiest hat of the era, the cloche.
A cloche is a fitted, bell-shaped hat (originally invented by milliner Caroline Reboux in 1908), typically worn very low on the forehead. This style of hat peaked in popularity in the 1920s and continued to be seen until about 1933.
These days, whether vintage or new, cloche hats continue to represent feminism, independence and the height of style. Below we have gathered a selection of vintage, new and custom made cloche-style hats found on etsy this week. Click on each image below to see the full listing.
