Hattingdon is off to the cinema to take in a movie. And she has the “picture perfect” hat to wear. It is a novelty hat based on popcorn, the kind you get at the movies in a red and white striped box.
This is a recreated version of the first one made by Hattingdon’s hatmaker, Mrs Farrell. She chose the name Zea which is part of the classification name for the type of maize that popcorn is made from.
Don’t you just love it when you come across something delightful you forgot you had? Well, that is what happened with my Veda hat. Mrs Farrell must have created this very early on. I love a dramatic silhouette when it comes to hats, don’t you?
This hat is a gorgeous green, kind of Fall-ish. Yet I still want to wear summery colours — because it is still so warm. In the high 70’s most days. And the leaves have not even begun to change, which I miss very, very much. Maybe we will have a late but long Fall and a short winter.
