I love the look of these entire retro, vintage, eclectic or whatever word you want to use to describe these golden oldie inspired patterns. These were such an elegance in those years that has not been duplicated again although tried. Times definitely were different back then from what they are now.

I love all of these vintage ideas! I definitely want to try a chic retro hat.
