|sort-of-cloche, Daktari, rice paddy|
I love hats--and I really need to wear them in the summer. My hair is very thin, and my scalp gets sunburned! Course, I don't have a collection as extensive as Judith over at Style Crone. She is the guru of hats--but I know we both share our LOVE of hats.
All of my hats I need to sew ties onto--it's regularly pretty windy here so my hat needs to stay ON! The first hat on the left is a find at Marshall's; it's great 'cuz you can crush it in a suitcase and it bounces back! The middle one my husband calls my Daktari hat--remember the series Daktari about a safari eons ago? Well, that hat I bought at a boating store and I love it because of the tie. And its cotton. oh, and it has snaps on the brim. Very Daktari. And the last one is a recent purchase from a trunk show from an exclusive second hand store in Boston. It says, "Bonwit Teller" on the inside, and the ribbon is velvet. I get more compliments on it! Small version of a rice paddy hat.
I never wear baseball caps--they look AWFUL on me.
I had to try this hat on during a recent visit to Martha's Vineyard.
I passed on it. So Carmen Miranda and maybe a little flying nun too--don't you think?
