Hats, Part Deux

From last weeks post as promised, inspired by the Hats Exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum, here are bloggers who dare to wear hats, and me, in my new hat!

Isn't it funny how years ago, women HAD to wear hats and now it takes a little chutzpa to wear one?  I mean, don't you feel more VISIBLE in a hat?  I do, and how appropriate for VISIBLE MONDAY!  And I think my blogger friends who joined me here feel that way too.  Just look at their smiles--they are having fun with their hats~

As I am with my collection of hats, only SOME of which is shown here:

dog on right is not a hat.





As promised, my new hat from the PEM Hats exhibit.

See you later this week!

  1. Your new hat -- and all the hats -- are fabulous, Paula. You wear a hat so well. You're sure that cute dog cannot be a hat? : > Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  7. I love hats and think they really make an outfit BUT.....they are sooooo uncomfortable. I cant wear them in the rain, nor the wind, nor the Mall, nor most anyplace I go except to remove it as soon as I get there so what is the point? Love though.

  8. Hats - I love them!! You are right, you do feel more visible in a hat. Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes not, depending on your mood! You have to feel confident enough to pull off a hat I think!

  9. Thanks for the mention! My last name (DeBock) is misspelled but that's a common error. The capital B in the middle throws people off!

    I love your red hat and I think I feel a hat post of my own coming on. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. Oh wow you look fabulous in your blue hat. I love hats, I have hats, I have my grandma's old church hats, I look ridiculous in hats, sad face....I wear a visor to mow the lawn in and a cute rabbit fur head band to walk in the snow, that's it. Kathy, formerly myidahohome

  11. I feel a hat phase coming on. I have quite a few summer hats, but only two winter hats. I have been trying hats on at the thrift stores, but haven't found quite the right look yet.

  12. You and puppy are just so cute ... it takes something special to wear a hat so well and effortlessly. You have it and I am envious. A tiny brim makes my nose honk out, twice it's normal size. A little larger brim works for my face, but shortness of stature makes that touchy. Mushroom time. I feel inspired, though, to dust off my classic black fedora ... and it's all your fault! Thanks!
