My Love Affair with Hats

   I love, love beautiful and colorful hats! Honestly, I don't wear them as I did when younger, however, I still have that special feeling about them.
  Women have adorned themselves with beautiful head-dress from back-in-the-day until now. I admire a woman who can wear and look good in the fashionable hats of today...because some of them, shall I say, are quite...wild! Those that are termed "church" hats have gotten to be quite colorful as well.

Admittedly, I really had a love affair with the "cloche". Even now, I find myself pulling one down from the closet to try it on...you know...checking myself out in the mirror. LOL.  Well, that's as far as it goes these days. That reflection that comes back to me isn't the same as that youthful, demure, look of earlier times, honestly.
Here are some beautiful cloche...they are quite stylish:


 There's an art to wearing a cloche. It fits closely with a floppy brim...the hat is designed to be worn low on the forehead and structured so that you must tilt your head and peer down your nose to see...This gives the wearer a slightly...haughty look.

 The cloche was quite popular during the 20's, but are slowly making their way back into fashion. This handmade one is adorned with flowers, buttons, etc. I love the colors.

 Let's face it ladies, we wear what make us look and feel good! If the latest fashionable hat is the ticket, then wear it and wear it well!  
 Southern women are known for doing so, I suppose taking a cue from our neighbors across the ocean...wearing hats for the sake of wearing hats. Well, if you are going to be fashionable as others... always choose the best, right? If the hat fits...    Enjoy!

Have a super weekend and love love your family and friends! Give your pet a hug from us! Love You Softly!
