What a wonderful read, it is one of those books that you can sit and read in one sitting, or dip in and out of. The pictures are just beautiful and capture the romance of everything to do with hats along with a witty dialogue. It states, and I quote "Hats have the power to transport us to other times and places and personas as well as keeping us warm and making us beautiful on all the most important occasions. In this book there are dozens to try on and dozens to inspire your next shopping trip."
It certainly does that and a whole lot more. I was inspired to decorate some straw hats just for the fun of it to use as props in my craft room.
There is a chapter on hat pins, which are a real delight and also one on storing, for safekeeping. A hat box a collectors piece in itself. I have been looking for a leather hat box to sit on top of my wardrobe, but my budget doesn't extend to the ones I have fallen in love with, so for now I have a cardboard hat box covered in chintzy paper.
According to the book, rules for wearing a hat are yesterday! Suits me, I'm thinking big is beautiful and the bigger the better! All I can say is watch this space....
Have a wonderful Sunday.
