I've searched high and low for hats. I've tried everything from H & M to Chanel and Hermes. With a round face and small head, one has to find the exact fit or else I look like half of my face has been cut off. In the cold winter months, I've put up with a beanie from Stella McCartney for Gap. Just in case you're wondering, yes, it's the one for kids. Those who know me will probably groan at my comments. They prefer my long hair down. I like my hair up and away from my face. Hence, it's tied up in a ponytail or messy chignon MOST of the time. Now that can be a problem with a beanie. I just look like Mrs Potato Head. Not a good look.

Why a hat, I hear you ask? Now if you're as blind as a bat like me and ok, clumsy too..... navigating a narrow lane while trying to peer through wet glasses is comparable to going on a suicide mission. Last week on yet another rainy day, I reached the end of my tether. I ran into the Jigsaw shop, grabbed the one and only hat left in the store and came out a happy camper. I consider it money well spent. The teachers at Little L's schools and friends thought I looked really stylish (I wonder what I look on other days!). Little L was effusive with her compliments (boy, does the girl know how to earn brownie points to get extra sweets!). Most importantly, my head's warm as it's made of 100% wool and voila, my glasses are dry for a change.



  1. Love hats! They're practical and stylish! But yes, it can be tricky to find the right shape for our faces/heads.

  2. I've yet to find a Hermes Funk hat in my size. Now that's a beautiful hat.
