Title Light Beige Ladies Hat

Description A light beige colored velvet hat for women. Around the rim and the front of the hat the fabric is folded so that it looks almost like a middle eastern or indian head wrap. There are two large faux diamond buttons fastened to the front of the hat and one large hair pin pinned to the back. The pin is about 5 inches long with a circular velvelt end on it. The inside of the hat is also beige and there are dark visible staples toward the front portion of the hat.
