my hat

Author: angiem, 03 30th, 2011

Isn’t it fabulous? And magical? And extraordinary? It arrived on the dreariest, rainiest afternoon, a burst of color in an otherwise grey world. I took so many photos wearing my new hat, I bored my darlings to tears. They wanted to touch it or, in my daughter’s case, try it on, and not just watch me take picture after picture. Somehow my expression just didn’t seem right, though, the hat commands elegance. I’m thinking this expression is most fitting.

Once again, thank you so very much for this generous giveaway, Anya of Couture Millinery. I love it! And I can’t wait to wear it!

    Thank you, ladies! I love the hat, and I love Kirie’s suggestion that I wear it to a favorite cafe. Perhaps I’ll wear it to church on Easter Sunday.

    Anya made it especially for my head, so it is comfortable and so very soft.

    We in India never wear hats, only caps when the hot sun is threatening to melt our brains. But you look charming in that hat. Lovely colour which matches your complexion perfectly.

    Joy for a great Friday and weekend,

    Angie, you look so elegant and slightly mysterious. This could be a cover for a novel that takes place in the 19th century. The lighting and mood is wonderful.
