It's no secret that I adore hats in every capacity, and I appreciate an artful and cleverly made headpiece at any given time. Of course hats are not for everyone, but to me they are truly special! I remember family friends coming over my parent's house for yet another night of entertainment and dinner, some would be donning such interesting hats.
As other patrons entered our home even as a little girl I would be the one eyeing the dapper gents and well-dressed ladies; mentally taking note and separating those who were fashionably daring from others playing it safe, so to speak. You know what? Sometimes a small piece of fabric covered in feathers or other extraordinarily elaborate trimming does an outfit justice! However, it's all in the styling and personality of the wearer.
My friends and family know that I certainly do not need an occasion to wear a special hat! To be honest, I wish people would wear them more often.
If you follow me on Pinterest then you've likely seen my dedicated board to the art of headwear—quite a diverse mountain of loveliness I might add.
Without further ado, here are a few of my favourite headpieces, including three that I have made myself (more glam creations to come), from simple fascinators to avant-garde wonders. I do hope that you enjoy these art infused glimpses for the stylish crown.
Are you a hat wearer or just an appreciator? Perhaps both?
