That’s right, just one. Because although I was in the cutest shop, in an adorable historic house in Okotoks, Alberta, and I was surrounded in 3 hats that I loved (and 3 more that I liked)… I could only get one.
Let me tell you, it was torture. The problem, you see, is they were all cloches. I love cloches and the fact that they have come back into fashion in the last few years makes my head super happy. But like I said, I could only have one, and so I just bought one. Un chapeau. I’ve been dreaming of that shop though, and the rest of the hats. I’m a little sad that I didn’t splurge and buy one… two more.
Have you ever worn a cloche? Properly worn, they are almost pulled totally over your eyes, so that you have to tilt your head up to see anyone, and then you’re looking down you’re nose at them, all snooty-like, loftily even. Sigh. They are the best. There is nothing I love more than going around looking down my nose at people.
Another bonus: I live in a small town. If you live, or have lived in a small town, then you know that going to the grocery store, the post office, or say, the bank, can be quite a social event. Well, sometimes I don’t like that, ok, most of the time I’m not into that. In fact, I like nothing more than to just ignore everyone some days, but that isn’t always an option. With this hat, however, it is more than an option, I don’t even need to ignore people, because I honestly can’t see them! hahahaha! I love it!
