The picture on the left is an old picture of my hat collection. The picture is only a year and a half old, but very out of date because I’ve added two or three (or four) more hats since it was taken.
It’s also not a picture of ALL of my hats because none of my stocking caps are represented and I have three or four (or five) of those.
I love hats. I don’t know why. I don’t know when it started. But I collect hats like most women go after shoes. I prefer ballcaps, but I like fedoras, cowboy hats, cabby hats, stocking hats, stupid hats, any hats. I’ve even got a sombrero.
I look good in hats, too. Nothing humble about that brag, either. It’s a fact.
The thing is I don’t wear hats very often. I wear ballcaps to ballgames, but other than that, it doesn’t happen very often. Coco Chanel said that before you leave the house you should take off one accessory. That accessory for me is usually a hat.
That doesn’t stop me from buying them, though.
I want to be prepared in the event that a hat is needed.

I love hats. Hats are great conversation starters. I have a lot of ‘normal’ hats, like Phillies hats (I call them normal because everyone knows who the Phillies are). But I also have a lot of ‘odd’ hats. Like my Camden Riversharks hat, my Chivas de Guadalajara hat, my California Golden Seals hat, my Quebec Nordiques hat, and my Fremantle Dockers hat. Those hats are great conversation starters, though that’s not why I wear them. I wear them because they look damn good. Mitchell & Ness is lucky that their hats are so expensive, otherwise I’d buy ’em out.
I keep acquiring Cubs hats.. I already have several, but somehow…it’s just…not…enough! And you’re right about hats being conversation starters. A hat compliment/question gets the talk going.
