Mrs. Gatsby.

I have a thing for hats, something I can rarely wear because a) it's never really cold here and b) I can never find hats for my huge head. Really. Most hats are just too tight around my head. Meh.

But I do have a thing for hats, I do! If possible, I'd love to live somewhere that would grant me the weather that would allow me to wear such head gear. In particular, I'd like to wear lots of hats harking back to the styles of the 1920s. I love the 20s.

Like this one!

I love this hat and I actually selected it in blue. This is a wonder because I basically abhor blue. Besides denim, there are only five, five!, pieces of blue in my wardrobe. It's just not my color. Perhaps it is the associations with a certain political party or because mom loves blue and wears it to death, but I am averse to it. But this hat is just screaming for me to adopt it and give it a new home.

The only thing that scares me is that it may be too costumey? Oh well...with some wide leg pants, a simple shirt, and a cardigan, it would look fab, no?
