Would you wear and use a vintage pocket watch?

Tip Top Top Hats by Gypsy Lady Hats on Etsy

We are rapidly approaching the time of year which harbors many, many Steampunk and related genre events. Do you know what you shall wear on your perfectly-coiffed head?

I have a suggestion.

Behold this fabulous brown suede, black leather and brass tack top hat which a friend of mine purchased as a custom order item from Gypsy Lady Hats on Etsy.  I must admit, I almost "squeed" when I saw it.  The quality of workmanship astonished me, especially as the price paid was not much more than the prices listed in her shop for already-made hats of similar style.

The Gypsy Lady Hats shop page mentions that custom orders may take between two and three weeks for completion, but I say that judging from this example, the wait would be well worth it.  I may have to place an order; even though hats usually do not flatter me whatsoever, I would love to wear one of hers, anyway!


  1. I have her in our favorites on Etsy. I absolutely love her work. I think I may have to get one for Marcus.

  2. Excellent! If you have any pictures of things you have purchased from her, I would love to see them.
