I had a very long relationship with berets, but I’ve stopped wearing them since moving on from the girly 60s Parisienne obsession. I still very much like the structured uniform look, so I picked two hats from Many Hats Millinery that embodied that. I found a nice military-looking green tiny beret hat that was actually a fascinator, which I am wearing in the first two photos. A lot of times we think of crazy feathers, fishnets, and elaborate designs on these “mini hats” called fascinators. I found a nice selection of tamer designs on Many Hats that I think a lot of you will like.
The second hat was actually from a mixup, becauase I really wanted the last hat in the below collage! It would’ve fit in with the structured look I was hoping for while still being feminine, but I did easily fall in love with the hat that was sent to me instead. I think both of these would fit just fine with a lot of casual outfits, without going overboard or too retro (which I really don’t have a problem with)!
Do you own a fascinator or would like to own more of one? Many Hats Millinery would like to give away any of their handmade hats valued up to $50 from their Etsy store! This giveaway is based on random drawing. Remember, the more entries you have, the more chances of winning. Good luck! Open to all (US and international) and will end on Sunday, May 19th at 12 am EST.
So you think you need to ditch the head gear for summer? No need to sacrifice comfort for style with these light-weight wonder scarves! The lovely owner of The Style Underground contacted me to give away three scarves or hats to readers of à la Modest. I will be randomly picking three winners per item, so there are more chances to win! I was also requested to style one item of my choice that I will be putting up in a separate post. I picked the Luxe Silk Voile Scarf made from a silky and breathable fabric by Prada (materials are designer made). I usually avoid wearing hats, scarves, or anything in my head because I have hair as thick as my little brother’s skull, but this scarf actually made me feel a bit cooler… in both senses.
