And a big thank you to all of you who commented on my last post, which seemed to generate quite a lot of interest. Btw, I miscounted. I have 12 pairs of shoes rather than 11!
So, having said that one of the reasons for the low number of shoes is the lack of space to store them it is amazing how I find space for 9 coats and 13 jackets! Then there are my hats. I have 12 large brimmed hats, 2 furry cold weather hats, 1 1970s-type hat and a further 12 soft berets, beanies and boiled wool hats making that a total of 27 hats.
Hmm. Anyway here are a few of the hats starting with the big brimmed variety, which I love but don’t give them all the outings that they deserve.
This is my latest buy (Galleries Lafayette in Toulouse in March of this year) and I’ve worn this a lot.
And another hat from Toulouse bought 3 years ago. Bit round-shouldered I see, but working on that through Pilates. Note the shoes!
The hat below was bought new in Urban Outfitters about 5 years ago.
I often find I’m the only person in the room wearing a hat – see below for the evidence!
I’m just about to get rid of this green hat – but it’s still in the back of the car if you think I ought to keep it. I can see I bought the hat some time ago as there are my much loved boots that fell apart about 2 years ago
I’ve never worn the hat below and wish I could find an opportunity. This was a charity shop hat and cost £5
And this below is also an unworn charity shop hat – I think I’ll wear it in Brighton this summer. What it needs is a black linen dress to go with the hat. I have the black sandals 😉
This is one of my winter hats.
And here’s a favourite summer hat bought in Flam Norway.
And don’t forget the berets.
And below for a white and pink beret.
In the winter I wear these quite a lot.
If you think you’ve seen these photos before you’d be right as not only have I been busy but on my only free writing day (Thursday) I was unexpectedly in A&E (ER in States) with Mr F. All OK now, but he gave me a fright. So true that these things come out of the blue and you know – live in the now if you can.
And god bless our NHS. The staff were wonderful, so sweet and polite and just there to find out what was going on (it was his heart fluttering ++++). And overseas readers, what did it cost to be in A&E for 6 hours with numerous tests and an army of emergency staff plus a senior consultant? A big fat NOTHING. He even got a meal! On bended knees I hope the rapacious nobheads who are privatising our beloved health service get their just deserts. And I don’t apologise for my language!!!! At some point I will say more about that on My Other Blog, which has been silent for a few weeks but things are hotting up, so expect an update next week.
That’s all for now but thank you for reading the blog 🙂
With love, Penny, the Frugalfashionshopper
