While in England I was also able to find this purple wide brim hat, something that I have been lusting over ever since they came into fashion. And while getting it back home without damaging it or it losing shape was a mission, I am so pleased to have this beautiful piece. What makes it even better is that the hat matches the dress perfectly. Fab!
"A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it's the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it's the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seem jealous over, and to make men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat" (Martha Sliter)
