This last statement is not an entirely true statement because I do, in fact, own a couple hats. I have a straw wide brimmed sun hat that occasionally I will wear at the beach and I also have a straw cowboy style hat that I occasionally wear to some southern function.
With both of these hats, they are worn on occasions when I would not feel out of place with the general population. Could I really be that self conscious of wearing something on my head that would make me stand out? Me? The "weird" lady (in this small town) who already goes around wearing vintage clothes and styling her hair in decades old styles?
Thinking about this made me remember that I regularly sported a beauty of a red felt hat while in high school. It had a cute little black feather on the side. Here are a couple photos of me in said hat from way back in 1978. (Now, don't be trying to do the math with my age, it takes more fingers and toes than I've got!)
|Notice the blue shimmery eye shadow.|
|Some amazing red lipstick! Wonder what shade that was!|
I liked this hat, and I remember how special I felt while wearing it. So, I think it is time for me to rectify this hat situation of mine, don't you? I already wear scarves, flowers and snoods in my hair, so why not a hat? Why not, indeed!
