Rad Hat Society

Just like the innumerable masses of pale ladies that came before me, I've gone to Florida and purchased a wide-brim hat.

This impressive number was plucked from the racks of a small town thrift store for $2. Two adorable old ladies told me that it was "beautiful" and "elegant." I never argue with the profuse flattery of strangers.

Though, between you and me, I think this topper was intended to be a wall hanging and not, you know, an actual hat.

But damn the man! Power to the elderly ladies!

That's quite a big hat but I quite like it. It will work well on a wall or with an outfit. Do you have a lot of hats? I have one vintage hat I'm trying to figure out how to display since the hatbox is broken.

I'm glad you like it! I have an absurd number of hats that I very seldom wear and so finding a lovely way to display them would be awesome. What are you thinking for yours?
