Here in the northern hemisphere, it's the first full day of fall. Let's look at hats from 1935. Back then, you'd have never left the house without one. Now, hat-sporters garner odd looks and are often judged as eccentrics. Times change.
But, I still wear a hat from time to time. I like hats.
Elspeth - Oh, what elegant hats! Some of them are just lovely :-). This is another of those posts of yours that reminds me of things my mother has said to me. When she was a young woman (admittedly a bit after this time period), you simply didn't go anywhere without a hat. I even remember (vaguely) a few of hers...ReplyDelete
I love hats, though your pictures won't load for me today...I'm imagining them. My they are lovely.ReplyDelete
I always heard 'if you can't carry a gun, wear a big hat.' no idea what that means but I swear by it.
In my younger days, I never left the house without a hat. Alas, those days are gone but I'm proud to say my daughters are carrying on the tradition. Nothing as glamorous as any of these though :-)ReplyDelete
Margot; Isn't it interesting that in a relatively short period of time wearing hats has gone from a necessity to an eccentricity?ReplyDelete
Jan; I've never heard that before but I love, love, LOVE it.
Sarah; Hat-wearers, unite! I'd love some of these hats, but can you imagine the prices?
I am SO not a hat person, but now that we live in Colorado I actually have hats--a ball cap for hiking, knit caps for winter warmth, and 2 cowboy hats just for fun. When everyone's wearing hats, I feel less dorky.ReplyDelete

I'm also not much of a hat person. I only have my bush hat which is mandatory for the sun here. Perhaps I must reconsider.ReplyDelete
