Felted Crowns

Generally speaking I’m not really a huge hat wearer, but the never-ending cold snap has had me searching Etsy for unique headwear for frosty mornings. I want to change it up a little so I’m not always wearing the same knitted one that has been putting in overtime work of late. During a recent Etsy trawl I came across these beautifully sculpted hats and accessories by Pooka Queen, which are not exactly suited to the everyday use I had in mind, but are so elegantly fashioned that I just had to share.

They almost make me yearn for the days when fancy hat wearing was a daily occurence. Almost.


Winter Warmers

Theres nothing like a bit of discomfort to make you rethink the way you do things. A couple of weeks ago I was out in the evening and cussed all the way back home. Why? Because my head was cold. No, my head was half frozen. I’m not really a hat person- they mess up your hair, you have to have the right hair style to wear a hat, and in general I’m just not that keen. A half frozen head changed all that and I vowed to go nowhere between now and April 2013 without one. I’ve bought two since that life changing day and we are inseparable. I bought this one from Accessorize, and this one yesterday from Per Una at M&S…



It’s not on the M&S website but its the Sahara hat. It’s a bit squashed on one side in the top photo but I like it so much I may even get really bold and find a similar shape in a brighter colour. Its available in two styles, plain black or with a pink and purple ribbon around the crown, and has the added benefit of coming in two sizes as one size most definitely does not fit all. Here it is with the rest of the outfit. I guess fat girls now like hats too.
