    That cover makes me wish that people regularly wore hats nowadays. I see men in hats now and then around D.C. and they usually look so dapper and cool.

    Oh look at that pink tulip-y one. Truly marvellous.

    I must tell Elise that if I still lived in Brisbane I would have loved to go!

    I used to wear hats all the time when I was younger – I just thought they made me look more mature. I don't think I ever see anyone wearing hats anymore – for shame. Hmmm. Perhaps I should start wearing them again. Great cover!

    I love hats and agree that the world would be a better place if they were worn more often. My favourite on there is the purple one that looks like a satellite dish

    Thanks for posting

    A good stopping point: I have an enormous head so I look terrible in hats.

    Aimee: The tulip-y one was designed by Frederick Fox and worn by the Queen in 1977 during her Silver Jubilee festivities.

    Nadia: My fascination started in 1981 when Princess Diana came on the scene.

    Elise: Thank you for the inspiration.

    Hannah: I chuckled when I read how you described that hat. In fact, it is not a satellite dish, but an “Alice band” trimmed with feathers. The Queen wore it to the wedding of Prince Edward in 1999.

    Jodie: Except I don't think I have ever seen an instance where Her Majesty had a wardrobe malfunction.
