 Yes, I'm yelling  (it's what I

Back when I was in college, I was asked by a local newspaper columnist to pose for some photos to be used in a column about hats. Since I loved hats then (and still do), I happily agreed. What 20 year old doesn't want her pic in the papers?  lol

They told me to wear a plain dark top and bring some jewelry and a selection of scarves, and they would decide what accessories went with which hats.  Here are two of the photos:

I really wanted to have the 2nd hat, it was plum/mulberry color and had large pink cabbage roses on it. I had nothing to wear with it, but that never stopped me. But when I went to Coyle & Richardson ( a local department store)  to buy it, it had already been sold.  I do wish that the photos had been in color, but the paper seldom (if ever) had color pics back them. 

I didn't care for the hat in the top pic, the style of it was not for me. I preferred hats with large or deep brims. They were not easy to travel with, but since I never went didn't matter. 

To this day, I own about 7-8 hats, not counting stocking hats for winter. Sometimes I wear one when I go to the beach....but hardly ever wear them anyplace else.  What about you? Do you love hats and wish they would come back in style?

I love the photos. Hats don't seem to be as popular as they used to be, the only time you see women in the UK wearing them is for Ascot or a wedding.

I still wear a cap every day.

I have several hats, some straw with large brims, very hot here, and some wool/felt hats also with brims for winter. Not into baseball caps though. I really like wearing a hat. Have since I was in college in the 60's. :-)
