Mad hatter

I am a very girlie girl, I love shoes, purses, accessories, and hats! There is more to me than just being Princess Scooterpie.  This is a very rare fashionesque post - don't fall off your bike....


It all started with this little number, I loved the classic charming lines and that it was tweed with a sparkle in it.  I happened to be at the local farmers market and came across a booth loaded with hats! Very lovely handmade hats! I have always been a hat girl way back since the 80's when Princess Di brought them into fashion.  

This lovely lady is the hat artist! Her hats range from the practical yet pretty sunhat to the extreme feathered, rosetted and bowed large silk brimmed hats - and yes I do have my eye one one or two of those! She also makes cute cloche hats and poorboy hats.  Some of my faves though are her vintage 30-40's inspired cloche hats.  



I also like having multiple choices because I wear sunhats in the summer due to the burn & peel factor my skin has even with sunscreen.  This lead to the purchase of this hippie inspired tie dye theme and of course it had pink! 


Tonight I found the perfect throw in your bike bag to hide helmet hair hat! This is a gorgeous deep khaki coloured textured small brim hat.  I love the fit and its perfect for those bad hair days.  Behind me is a cloche style hat and yes I have a similar version. Of course I fell in love with two hats and came home with 2. 


I am a lover of hats and love to wear them at jaunty angles for a bit of flare.  There was once a time when women never went out without a hat, I wish those days were back.  I love Linda's hats because they are soft, shapeable and very wearable.  You can turn and shape the brims to how it suits you and that is the art of hat wearing. I know these aren't as fancy as the British fascinators, I have worn them before and they are uncomfortable.


Gotta say for me these beat the utilitiarian ugly baseball cap I was wearing for sun protection.

You had mentioned that you may be looking for a new helmet. Is this part of the process? Just wondering.... ;-)

I'm into hats, too. You all have more options :-)

David Masse said...

I'm with Keith, I like hats too, but many hats don't like me. I try them on in the store. When Susan takes one look and bursts out laughing, I move on.

I'm a flat cap type of guy myself.

Richard - I haven't found the helmet yet, still lookin.

Keith - you've had a few pics on fb with you wearing hats.

David - there is a hat for everyone, you just have't found the style that looks good on you. It can take awhile.

Robert - once you find the style go with it!

I am like David, I don't do well with hats. Maybe it is because i hate anything on my head. Yes, I always wear a helmet but I hate wearing them both for bicycling and motorcycling.

I am glad you enjoy them so much - and you look cute wearing them too!

Nice hats Dar. Not a hat person myself, unless it's minus 20 - but they suit you.
