I'm not an old lady.

But I dream of wearing a hat. I dye my hair a lot with semi-permanent dye and it makes me afraid of rain.

Does anyone have a hat?

I love hats. I genuinely thought they would make a big comeback after Kate Middleton popped back up. I have several, but am not always brave enough to wear them.

I assume you want every day going out shopping hats, now that summer party/barbecue weather is over?

Do you have a good shaped head for hats? My mum doesn't, but we manage to find her one sometimes. My sister has the best shaped head and I have one in the middle. I tried this on the other week, and it is lovely.

I love that Cloche hat smile

I do woolly hats in the winter all the you mean woolly ones or something fancier?

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:01:55

No, a proper hat. Kind of like that cloche one I guess, but not quite.

like this?

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:05:07

another one

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:07:35

will I look deranged?

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:09:13

I don't know about my head.... what makes a good head for hats? I find that in winter if my hair is very short I can't wear a hat, they look crap. But if I have longer hair I still look like a girl so that is ok.

I also have glasses. Is there a glasses factor?

lovely lovely?

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:36:05

thanks for that Sue.

I love those hats you linked to Nagoo, It all depends on your face shape and the kind of clothes you wear too, I don't think you could get away with wearing anything to casual with that kind of hat.

God I live in the wrong era and have a stupid potato head <weeps>

I bought a nice posh mac, so I was planning on hiding my rubbish clothes under glamorous outerwear?

You are probably right though, I need a more casual hat.

Nagoo Tue 06-Sep-11 19:57:54

is this even nice?

munkiii Tue 06-Sep-11 20:19:39,r:17,s:0&biw=1680&bih=935 is what I was rocking last year
I am afraid of structured hats as the weather here is so so appalling!

nice to see your poundland hat in the style and beauty realm there sylv grin

munks I has a few woolly numbers, I want something a bit 'proper' I think.

I'm going to drink some gin and then wear one.

munkiii Tue 06-Sep-11 20:28:04

I used to have a red velvet floppy clochey grungy hat and one in bottle green velvet that I wore a brooch in.

I thought I looked a bit like a girl Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam would fall in love with

Tis true - works really well!! DP has the green one he wears on soggy golfing days too.

DoubleDegreeStudent Tue 06-Sep-11 21:59:44

We could have a day where we all promise faithfully to go out wearing hats. Then we won't feel stupid. But it might make mnetters a bit obvious grin

I love hats and they like me ! But I rarely wear one. I shall go out on payday and treat myself to a new hat.

Nagoo Wed 07-Sep-11 09:01:11

argghh when you do I want to see it.

I've bought a coat with a hood... <sigh>
