Hats! Not only can we wear them in winter but also in summer now, due to our wonderful designer friends creating the 'summer hats'. I have been wanting a really arge one forever but until now only had the small versions. So the other day when I was sample sale shopping, I hadn't been in over a month, I think some serious physiological damage has been done, it must have payed of to stay home so long because I found it. You know when people find their perfect wedding dress? Or 'their' shoes? Well, I can proudly say I have finally found my hat! totally excited I paired it up with my new awesome Maxi-cut-out-dress and my signature doc Martens and strutted through the city. People did as usually give me weird looks but I was delighted. You know the feeling when you're so delighted about a new piece in your wardrobe that you glance into every reflecting thing you pass? People must have thought I'm vain like crazy but really I was just aprreiciating my hat.
Unfortunatley I feel that the message of how cool hats are hasn't quite come across yet. I mean my mom seriously asked me if I was going fishing when she saw me (somewhere deep inside I'm sure she loves me, she just doesn't like to show it ;) ) The comment just showed how she had never been fishing because honestly, those hats fly away in the smallest breeze so going fishing with them would be the most stupid idea possible. And while people tend to laugh when you hold onto your hat when it's about to drift away in the breeze, I love the feeling of it. It reminds me of those old paintings in which you see beautiful women in elegant dresses taking a sunday stroll along the river somewhere, holding onto their hats in the breeze. Artist back then already knew that at one point we would all be crazy for hats.
Still loving fashion,
