Bring Headdress Back

Sometimes I think I live in the wrong century - what happened to wigs, mantillas or hats (and by hats I don't mean just your winter bonnet no matter how cute it is)..  For example what's wrong with this mantilla:

 I'll give you that the fact that it's made of silver might make it a bit difficult to wear but I think the look would be so worth the effort..

 For softer feel (and the dual purpose of keeping your head warm), what about those hats by Jean Paul Gaultier:

I can hear the pragmatists commenting on the difficulty of getting in the car or riding the subway so I'm looking into turbans.. I love that one but haven't figured out how to make it stand on your head yet, without giving you a headache so I'll keep working on it.


  1. Oh yes...I have hats like these just lying around...I just don't have much opportunity to wear them.

  2. I think you would look dashing with such hats in downtown wiscasset..
