Hello everyone

This is such fun – another month, another hat!  As usual I’m joining in and sharing this post with Judith Boyd’s Hat Attack session. Hi there, here’s my hat!


I found the hat in my local market for, really, next to nothing, and pounced as I could see it was a classic shape, possibly formal.


It’s navy, not a colour I normally wear but I brightened it up with a felt flower made by Kathi, a lovely lady, who brightens up our community centre in many ways with her cooking, her clothes (I shall have to feature her in another post) and the flowers she makes and sells in the cafe.


I can see I inherited my mother’s pointy chin!


And I think come the winter I shall wear this hat a lot.

That’s all for now

P.S.  The new-look blog has had some issues that have had to be tweeked.  Someone told me that the automatic email sent out to all you lovely email followers came to them from wordpress.com (!) rather than from the usual frugalfashionshopper.  We think we’ve fixed this (we hope) but, but, we can’t test it before we post this.  Hmmm.  Anyway your PC might have sent the last two posts to junk mail because of that (and might still do if it isn’t fixed!)  Many, many apologies – we wouldn’t know about these things until we changed over and things never go completely smoothly.

      Thank you so much, Debz. The thing to do is to wear it out and about & I think I will!

    That hat really suits you Penny, love the tilt of the brim

      Yes, it was put on a stall in our local market and I could see it was a lovely hat – I made the brim tilt a bit

    A simply lovely hat…suits you beautifully. The cloths you wear with it seem formal so the whole look is pleasing…but..can that flower be easily exchanged with another colour if you have a somber occasion to wear it to? It seems to me, that some frugal shoppers may want to do exactly that…get a suitable nicely fitting hat, then see if, with a turned brim and difference flower, feather, or decoration, it can be worn on different occasions. Hmm
    By the way, this week’s post came under Frugal Fashion Shopper. Thanks so much, Penny.

      Yes, the flower is just pinned on & I can easily change it. And yes, I replied to your last comment. That wordpress.com thing was because they’re sending the email – but we fixed it so that it still reads frugalfashionshopper. There were lots of little things we had to deal with, but the blog itself won’t change. Thank you for commenting, Margaret

    I love your style. We are approximately the same age and have similar tastes in apparel.

      So nice to meet you x

    Your really know how to wear a hat. This beauty frames your face to perfection and love the addition of the festive felt flower. Thank you so much for sharing with Hat Attack!

      I think I was born in the wrong era, Judith, as hats in my mother’s day were worn all the time. In the UK because of our damp cold winters we do wear woolly hats usually with a pom-pom attached. But so fortunate that I live near Brighton where anything goes as I could wear a big brimmed hat there, no problem. But one day I’ll have to come to the States & mingle with some hat lovers and fashionistas – that would be such fun!
