I need a hat, two actually, and I only wear woolly hats
Help me please. I have got to go to three functions where women wear hats and I hate that sort of hat. Just is not me at all.
I can get away with wearing one of them twice but the same people will be at two events so I need two weeps.
I am looking for small, tiny, minute hat that I can put on my head to satisfy the dress code only. Not ££££. Although I would happily pay decent cash for a woolly hat I can't justify money on something like this!
Googling small hats or tiny hats produces fascinators with feathers and bits that would stick you in the eye if you got close enough - I don't want feathers and flappy bits - small, tiny, plain invisible almost.
I've just bought myself two fabulous hats from a hospice charity shop. Would have been £200 plus each, look brand new and are exactly what I needed. I paid £38 for them both. One's for Trooping of the Colour (actual event and reception not public area) and other is a cathedral wedding.
Thanks mrs, well that is an hour of my life I won't get back - everything is too fussy for me. I have just seen the Whiteley one on a photo of DoC - too big for me so even if I felt like splurging I would want it half sized.
Tomorrow is another day - no idea what to do here!
Hat shopping is hard when you are boring , the black one is v plain - yes?? I thought I could remove the bits that stick out too much on the navy one and alter butcher the beige one to make it smaller.
I know that the first two are 'wintery' but it snowed here a couple of days ago so they will be fine. Hard to find dark colours that aren't big and extravagant that don't look funereal.
I had to order right now because DH is absolutely sick of hearing about hats and I only started last night when I posted .
I did it - I bought them all - that should be my hat collection for*ever*.
God knows what I was thinking of with the beige thing - DH was in bed next to me, sick of the whole hat conversation (which was only two hours long as we slept during the night ), I will give it to someone at work, although I think that the seller is very mistaken if she thinks she doesn't have to offer returns.
