My friend Tiffy Vella, creator of Eclectica Jewellery & Accoutrements (slurl here), has been on a design roll these days. As shown on her weblog and here, Tiffy’s latest creations are these wonderful Cloche hats. I just adore them because I do love a fun hat. But Tiffy’s hats do more than sit so prettily on the head. Her Cloche hats come with hair plus they are scripted for resizing as well as color changing options if you’d like to switch out the color of the hat itself, the band, and/or the hair.
I wear Tiffy’s knitted version first. It does come with a short sweet almost Betty Boop type hair style that isn’t visible from the side, but trust me the hair is there and it’s adorable. I wanted to highlight the texture of this hat, which is why I captured the second photo (below) in a windlight setting that popped the dimension of the flower on the side. Such an adorable hat! The knitted Cloche hat definitely can pull off a very coppertone suntan lotion look and just as easily it would compliment the flowing sundress you wear for a walk through a flower meadow or to join friends at a picnic or to attend the SL8B celebrations. This is a summer hat that is so easy and breezy to live in for the entire season.
For the Ladies Who Lunch set, Tiffy doesn’t disappoint with her Cloche felt hat (below). It too comes with hair and scripts for resizing as well as color changing options for the hat itself, the band, and the hair. With the felt version, the band changing options consists of different animal prints. I show this felt beauty first in black and then in tan. Note the large jewel and feather on the side of the band that adds such an elegant touch of panache. Perfect for being On the Town, or checking out new builds on the grid, or revisiting AM Radio’s builds as early and as often as possible while they are still inworld. (For more information on the upcoming close of AM Radio builds, check out Daniel Voyager’s weblog here.) But no matter where you go in Tiffy’s hats, one thing is certain: you’ll most definitely arrive in great style. Here’s the slurl again to Eclectica Jewellery!
