This Year’s Smartest Headress

During my birthday getaway in Joshua Tree I couldn’t help popping into the handful of antique stores in Yucca Valley. At one store I came across something I have never seen before… a Visor-ette.

Part snood, part visor, the Visor-ette came with a slip of paper boasting “The year’s smartest headress. Hides curlers, pins and unruly hair. Attractive, practical, washable. Visor-ette will take care of wind-blown and unruly hair.”

The item reminded me possibly of something a gal might wear while gardening, or even perhaps while horseback riding, and I thought it may work well with my adventurer chic looks. Along the bottom of the paper it noted that its patent was pending, and it was trademarked 1952, and funny enough it was produced by Ellis (which is my last name) Manufacturing Company of Glendale, California.

Sadly I can’t find anything on the internet about this unique accessory. But for now I’ll just enjoy it. So, what do you think? Have you ever stumbled across one of these? Would you wear a Visor-ette?
