Hats galore

Hats are definitely IN. We saw them in that virtual world, called runway, and they are now hitting the streets.

I always avoid wearing things that keeps people's attention. But today, I realise -yeah, I am a bit retarded- people is going to look at you anyway. I was walking through a corridor at the uni, when a girl saw me, whispered something to her friend and afterwards the both of them were staring at me. I gave them the worst of my looks and walked away in embarrasment.

Later on, I remembered all the beautiful fedoras and cocktail hats I'd came upon at Urban Outfitters' web but was afraid to buy. So I've just decided my New Years' resolution is to forget what people can think about me, be more free and true to myself, and wear hats.

That bowler hat looks fantastic! I've always wanted to wear hats formally, but sadly my city doesn't seem to believe in the concept.

Yes, to own your look and forget the fear to what others could think it´s the best lesson. It´s hard, but it´s good if you achieve it...

I love hats with veils.
I have the most beautiful feather fascinator that I just haven't got round to wearing yet. Maybe I'll dust it off soon!

Re: Apparently there are quite a few of us who draw/write in library books. Perhaps we should form a support group in order to kick the habit!

I like wearing hats a lot, especially when it's very cold. I like the grey one.

Oooh, the last one is pretty and elegant!!

You should really wear them, they can give life to a simple outfit.

Yay, for hats! I can't get enough of them.

WendyB said...

Go for the attention! Once you get used to it, you'll have fun!

Jane said...

I feel exactly the same way. I found a fedora at the thrift store but just can't get the courage to wear it. Maybe now I will! Thanks!

The third hat is love! I'd definitely wear that if I were a hat person (unfortunately, I look stupid in them).

I love the one with the netting and the last one. I wish I were a hat person, I see so many awesome ones.

Sometimes I wonder myself why we judge in a way we wouldn't wanna be judged ourselves! I would love to be able to wear hats around uni if I had the head shaped for it. If you look good, stick with it! I bet you look wonderful in it and those girls were just jealous that YOU could pull of a hot trend and they couldn't ;)

Gross, that happened to me the other day waiting for the subway...a girl was staring at me and then whispered to her boyfriend and then they both stared at me. I did the same thing as you, glared at them then turned and faced in the other direction :P So rude!! If you have to stare at me, at least be discreet about it. I saw her pointing at my boots though so maybe she was just admiring them, but if that's the case I doubt her boyfriend cared.

Anyway...the grey hat in the middle is absolutely gorgeous...and once you wear a hat out a couple times you will not feel so insecure in it. And if you're fabulous people WILL look at you regardless...might as well get used to it ;)

yes that's a useful resolution! i hate those looks too. people shouldn't be so rude just bcz of an outfit. it's ridiculous but makes me too avoiding hats and eye-catching accesories.. i shouldn't!
