I like the idea because Vogue/In Style/Russh do a number of features on the seasons latest plus Dita/Cameron/Kate/Nicole are all sporting them and looking fabulous. I then see one I like. I buy it. I get it home. I try it on with several outfits. I think it looks ridiculous.I hang it on the hat stand where it stays for the rest of the year.
Nevertheless, I did satiate my desire to don spectacular head wear at my recent nuptials by wearing a handmade vintage style head piece that matched my dress. Actually, I almost didn't wear it. After having my hair done and makeup applied I nervously attached the headpiece expecting it to look completely stupid but was then utterly gob smacked by how well it complemented my dress (and kept my unruly fringe out of my eyes).
So now that I have conquered head pieces, I'm going to give hats a whirl this winter. Of course, I do actually sell vintage hats in the shop - and over the last couple of years have sold a few spectacular ones at that! The thing is, hats always seem to look better on someone else's head...
Perhaps the trick is not to look in the mirror for too long - maybe I'll just pop it on my head as I'm walking out the door.
My beautiful handmade wedding head piece made me feel a million bucks!
...hopefully, I will feel the same about this one when I wear it outside!
