Hat-Attack Series: Mahogany

Hat-Attack Series: Mahogany

It’s no secret how much I love hats, and now the weather is finally cool enough to start wearing them.

My hat obsession started at an early age because of my mom, who has always been a hat connoisseur.  During a recent visit to see her, she gifted me with all of the fabulous hats she had collected for over half a century.  Needless to say, I was overjoyed and graciously found a place for them within my home.  While growing up she always wore different styles of hats, not only to church on Sunday’s but every where.  Hats were routinely incorporated into her daily outfits, so it was normal for me to think every woman should wear them.

I love hats so much not only because of their function, but because of their mysteriousness and the way they can skillfully change the look of any outfit on a whim.  More importantly they can also hide a bad hair day. 🙂

Over the course of the next several months, I’ll be bringing several of my mom’s hats back to life during a series called “Hat Attack”.  Each of these hats tell a story from the beginning or spanning over years and even generations.  The first hat featured in my blog is one of my favorites because it’s similar to the sophisticated hat worn by Diana Ross in the famous movie “Mahogany”.  It keeps me cozy and makes me feel a lot more pulled-together and polished, even when I hastily get dressed.

From time to time people have often asked me if hats are coming back.   I say “No, they never left”.  Stay tuned for more fabulous hats to come!
