I would have killed it back in 1890! Besides their total awsomeness in general, when I am wearing a hat there is at least 1/3 of my face I don’t have to worry about sorting out. And if it’s an off hair day? Bring it! I have a hat to fix that. A few months ago I went to an auction and saw the most spectacular hat collection I have ever seen. Hundred year old top hats, bowlers and fedoras in MINT condition, original boxes, original wrappings. Newsboys from the turn of the century… you name it, this auction had it. One of the bowlers was so fantastic I could hardly stand it so I put in a bid. And since I have no poker face of any kind, and you’re supposed to play it cool at these things, I drew way too much attention to this hat and lost it by 20$. Bah!
Today I found a bowler in a vintage shop that fits my tiny head and that’s just too exciting! Some people stuff their bras, well I pretty much need to stuff my hats. And this one fit like a glove. So even though I didn’t get the bowler I lusted over at the auction house, I found one today that is utterly lovely anyway.
