Awww.  Is that a handbag or an Easter basket you are holding?  I'm thinking purse, but then when I looked at the enlarged picture I was not sure. 

Dressed up little girls are soooo sweeeeet.

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.

It seems like some people are hat people, and others aren't LOL! For myself, since my hair is already a fairly significant "accessory", I only wear my own hand-knitted hat when it's either really cold out, camping, or a broad-brimmed one when the sun is extremely bright and hot, to keep my head cool and to keep the sun out of my eyes and face. I do however admire hats on others and appreciate beautiful sculptural hats in some cases. I also agree that the right kind of hat adds height and an aura of authority. And if one has beautiful eyes that are emphasized, what a combo! I did use to do this when younger with the broad-brimmed black felt hat that I wore forever in the early 70s. Floppy, broad-brimmed hats are coming back with the 70's revival. There's one for just about anyone - it's a matter of scale to find the right one, unless one really does look that bad in them.

Lucy, I LOVE that photo of you. It's really wonderful.

I have a photo somewhere of me wearing a diaper on my head.  Pitiful, isn't it?

Cara, I also had a large floppy brimmed hat in the 70s.  It was hot pink felt.
I could envision my adolescent self being so sophisticated in that hat - in reality I was too shy to wear it much.  But when I saw it (on my first shopping trip downtown sans mother) I fell in love and had to have it.

Amazing hats. The ascot cap is inaccurately called a Kangol cap mainly because of how people make the association. Such a hat is the perfect complement to casual outfits or to obtain a more casual or relaxed impression.Bucket Hats are very much a trend setter at the moment and if you want your business to become associated with what is contemporary.
