I totally love wearing hats. I feel they lend a real sense of occasion to any event. So, I really don’t mind wearing a helmet and willingly suffer helmet hair, better that than a cracked skull.
Some years ago, when I was attending a spate of weddings, I splashed out significant cash on a “Designer Hat”. It was truly magnificent, worth every single penny and made me feel absolutely fabulous. That hat probably featured in more wedding photographs that the respective brides. Indeed, I still have the hat and am more than willing to lend a touch of glamour to any occasion. You have my email address; I’m ready and waiting for an avalanche of invites. However, I do find these types of occasions are a bit like buses, you wait for ages and then several come along at the same time.
I no longer need to splash serious cash on so-called designer hats. I am very fortunate that a friend of mine makes bespoke hats, either to buy or hire, at very reasonable prices. Indeed, I have two of her lovely creations: one, a beautiful straw hat that I wear as often as possible during the summer months and, the other, a cheeky little trilby complete with extravagant feathering, which looks fab with trouser suits.
Looking through her portfolio, I know I’m just going to have to add to my collection. After all, a girl can never, ever have too many accessories.
Many of you may think that hats don’t suit you. Hats suit everyone; you just have to find the right shape and style for you. This is where Jane is worth her weight in gold.
