Put on a fancy hat

Updated on April 17, 2014

A nice hat is like the important dot over "i"

One rainy day, I was on my way to work. The sky was gray and I was tired. The street was a little slippery and I looked down on my feet.

Suddenly I was aware of that somebody came walking towards me. It was and elderly woman, in black shoes, black coat and black gloves.


On her head was the most beautiful hat I have ever seen. Pink with all kinds of flowers all around. There was a scarf under her chin coming from the hat. I will never never forget the impact this sight had on me. From then on I realized the importance of a really outstanding HAT!

If you are invited to a party, a dinner, a wedding or just feel like you want to be encouraged. Get a fancy hat! Use it and look often in the mirrror!

This lens will show just a few in different colours. But I will also post really interesting links to companies that can offer you the really nice, outsandig hats.

There is even a site that offers to build the hat for you the way you want it.

      Loved that humble bumblebee video. I wear hats all year but always want more.

      I LOVE hats. I used to wear them a lot. I do believe that a person should wear hats to protect them from the suns rays. Even though not many wear them now, I wish that they would come back into style.

      I love hats! I have a black cowboy hat for singing country on karaoke, a dressy one with flowers for church and several fedoras. Check out the lens I made of Queen Elizabeth's hats.

    No I think not

        I don't think they're for me, but I'll admit they're gorgeous and can add a lot of style1

      Here you can browse and enjoy really nice hats - there are hats for men too

      I love to just look around. If you fall for a hat you see- just send for it.

      Are you a "hat-person" - did this lens influence you a little? - let me know!
