Toques, domes and cloches, oh my - the mere sight of these and I give off a big, smiling breathy sigh! It would bring me endless pleasure to don something so invariably audacious - paired with a cape or perhaps a tailored ladies overcoat, why I'd look simply vivacious! Like a glove, a ladies hat can really make the Mrs. - perched like a crown that not only wholly encompasses - but serves like the cherry on top that fashionably finishes. A perfect hat can be so painfully ladylike - and go so far as to become one's ensemble highlight! There's certainly no denying that statement hats are utter perfection - it's no wonder they've become a coveted object of my affection!
