I am 65 years old and I love hats but there are not too many from my generation who like to wear them except perhaps the Red Hat Society ladies. I love the styles of the 1940's. I remember when Jackie Kennedy who was a very elegant first lady made hats popular in the 1960's with the pill box hats and hats were in vogue until the early 1970's. I loved the

fancy hats that Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie "My Fair Lady. "

What really matters

Instead of the tatters

Is ne'er the cloth

That's eaten by moth

On old beaten hats reborn,

But if enthusiast hatters

Could make head reform!

    So pretty!!! If not for the great camera, it could be from a much earlier time. Another wonderfully creative photo by Andrea.

    A great and stylish portrait!. It's a shame that hats have fallen from fashion. I love our old family photos with all the men in fedoras. But it is a casual world today, for better or worse.

    Marvelous SP, Andrea! ...and so appropriate with your camera! Have you considered flipping it? The Nikon name would be "corrected" and readable and it would make it look as if you posed for someone else. [I tried it and like the result.... you might as well!]
