Ladies and their head coverings! I could write a blog.
We all love to try them on and mug for the camera. Surprisingly few women look exceptional in hats and I think that’s because they don’t try hard enough to find the right one.
I’ve been buying and selling vintage hats at the North Dallas Antique Mall for many years and I’ve seen the expression on a woman’s face when she finds a hat she likes. Happiness. Satisfaction. Pride. But will she actually wear it when she leaves the store? Most people want a hat for an event–a wedding, a ’70s disco party, Halloween high jinks or a Roaring ’20s casino night. I fix them up with something and off they go. That hat may only get worn once, but we’re a hair closer to reviving the heyday of hats.
I could rattle off the names of the different styles and manufacturers and what years they were producing and maybe some day I will do just that. For now I wanted to showcase some of my friends, family and customers sporting some high-fashion and hilarious head pieces.
