Wow, that was wayyyyy off track. What I wanted to say was that, I walked in over the weekend with Mother and found myself drawn to their bright camel coloured floppy hat. No idea why, as hats dont seem to love me. I just have a wayyyyy too big of a head. But I can appreciate them on others. I tried it on, and this hat fit. It seemed to make my head look smaller. I did snort at the sight of me in a floppy hat, just dont think I have the gusto to pull it off - I turned around to Mother and she really liked it. On me. lol
I thought of it again last night, (as I was budgeting for a shopping trip today) and we spent some parts of last night discussing where I would wear such a crazy thing, and why, and with that. You know, the usual universally important questions. And she got me with one word: FESTIVALS. I was like Mother, you are the drug dealer to my fiendish consumption behaviour. She was absolutely correct. It is the PERFECT hat for summer festivals. I would not wear it any other time I don't think. So, I should definitely invest one, shouldn't I?
For the sake of avoiding skin cancer, and shading my eyes from the deadly Australian sun come Woodford Festival, Big Day Out etc..
But I tell you what, this hat reminds me of Galliano's 2008 Spring show. And I think the show and J. Galliano has something to do with me wanting a piece of that genius'ness.
