Bringing Bohemian Glamour from Decadent Decades Past!
I recently acquired a consignment of hats, well make that a few consignments of hats – (what do they say about waiting for a bus?????)
I used to wear hats quite a lot in my younger years but somehow never quite require the need, or desire, should I say to wear one now! Saying that – I did don a liberty silk turban at our last Bibalala event, which was quite liberating, I must say, and I intend to make the most of the current trend and add a splash of colour to my otherwise Black wardrobe!
I do love to see a woman wearing a hat, it seams like she’s gone that little bit further to perfecting her ‘Look’ and more to the point – She has confidence!!!! –
Now don’t get me wrong there are hats and there are HATS – Pulling a knitted beanie hat over your greasy locks to hide the fact that you got up late, or your roots are an inch long (50 shades of grey has a completely different meaning here!) is not an act of nonchalance – quite the opposite in fact – its – “Make me disappear into oblivion” – But choosing a vintage (1940’s) crepe, pleated turban (still tucking the crowning glory away) emphasising those arched groomed eyebrows, that smooth flawless ‘Mac’ veiled skin, those outlined glossy pouting lips gives a whole new meaning to a ‘Bad hair Day’
Anyway getting away from turbans and getting back onto the subject of hats, yes hats real hats, and I have many in my little trove of treasures (Mooshy La La’s Attique) in fact I have enough to open a hat shop! So I am in the process of photographing each one & describing and dating them to the best of my ability, this may take some time, so please bear with me!
Look out for oodles of hats going on display next month for the Wedding & Racing season, Well, here in Liverpool we are the home of the most famous steeplechase in the world…..
Lets not for get EASTER!!!!!
…Only wish we celebrated the event like those “NEW YORKERS” on 5th Avenue ……….they certainly know how to do a parade!!!!
