Though, like many of you, I (proverbially) eat, sleep, and breath vintage fashion day in and day out, that doesn't mean I'm not inspired by other peoples' styles, too, even if they veer more on the modern side of things. This rings especially true if a fellow fashion blogger and I happen to share a passion for a particular brand, garment or accessory.
Earlier this year I discovered a wonderful blog that's helmed by a very stylish lady named Kathleen Lisson (pictured below in a sublimely lovely Ellen Christine hat and Reiss dress). What makes her site - called That's a Pretty Hat - especially noteworthy is the fact that Kathleen in a hat loving woman after my own heart. From casual to royal wedding worthy, this well dressed blogger's posts are jam packed with one inspiring, beautiful hat after hat another, each of which is paired with Kathleen's refinded, elegant modern style (which strikes me very much as being 21st Jackie O or Grace Kelly).
We've been commenting on one another's blogs for a while now, and it was with much excitement that I recently received an email from Kathleen asking if I'd like to be included in part of a post she was planning about hat fellow loving bloggers. As you can imagine, I jumped at the chance and enthusiastically wrote back at the speed of light.
Kathleen asked me to share some of my thoughts on the wearing of hats as an accompaniment to the two photos of me (which long time readers may recall from this shoot last March) included in her post, which you can read here.
I adored getting a chance to share some virtual page space with a handful of fellow hat lovers, whose styles, though much more modern than mine, are certainly inspiring and joy to find myself amongst. If you haven't had an opportunity to discover Kathleen's blog yet, it's a definite must for hat fans of all sorts, whether you reach for the mid-century designs like I do, or straight-off-the-F/W 2012 runway styles. (and everything in between!)
Many sweet thanks for including me as part of your first post on fellow chapeau adoring gals, Kathleen. I can't wait to see, and be inspired by, future editions of this series!
