How To Wear a Hat

I passed this young woman on Richmond Street, and noticed her hat, so I doubled back to ask her if I could take her photo (I do that quite frequently, I'm surprised more people don't think I'm a stalker).  I love to see people wearing hats (although I do not consider baseball caps to be hats), and this one was very flattering on her (and matched her coat perfectly).  One of my favourite quotes about hats is by 94 year old model/actress Mimi Weddell, who passed away in September.  She had a huge collection of hats, and it was her opinion that everyone should wear one: "Hats give you a frame," she said.  "However dreary you feel, if you put on a hat, by golly, you've changed everything.  I keep telling my daughter, my granddaughter, everybody, if you don't wear a hat, you're missing it."
