The thing about hats that mostly fascinates me is how insanely crazy they can get design-wise, and it's an acceptable crazy. And I mean not just today, (thinking Princess Wedding, Kentucky Derby) but years ago (old films, 20's thru 50's). Me, being the artist, just love the crazy! The most memorable hat for me? This crazy Pom Pom hat that was in a display with other hats worn by famous people. (like a lime green fascinator worn by Sarah Jessica Parker)

I was inspired, of course, to buy a hat at the giftshop. (The one I am wearing is NOT the one!)
|My new favorite: this fur vest. I wore it today over a light jacket.|
Would an exhibit like this inspire you to wear a hat? Would you even dare to wear a hat? How about a wild hat? If you do, send me a photo. I'll make a post of all of our hats (wild and otherwise) along with my new hat!
