This is a public service announcement!

My dear friend Sam always says that she looks terrible in hats. Not that I am adverse to this opinion - it has yielded me some lovely hats that she didn't like. Well I have discovered the problem!

No my friends, Sam does not have a hideously deformed head, or ears that hang to her knees or hair bigger than Diana Ross. No these are not the problem. The problem? Sam didn't know how to wear a hat.
Let me explain....

This was how she was wearing this nicely constructed Slouchy Copy Cat Hat. Note that she has it sitting practically on her eyebrows and she looks just a little like she might be about to steal your video player.

Now this is how she should be wearing this lovely hat.

Note that it sits further back on the head, at about ear level and as a result she looks jaunty and cosmopolitan!

Let this be a lesson! There is an art to hat wearing and it definitely isn't this.....

oh I don't know... I personally like the cone-head look ;)

you mean cone heads aren't cool??
Seriously though, I wasn't a hat fan either until the death by hat. I've just finished my 2nd slouchy hat and it looks good too. I think I've found my niche

That just made me cackle out loud at my computer screen! People will start thinking I'm strange - wait who am I kidding, everyone already thinks I'm strange. Definitely hide your valuables from that dodgy looking woman in the first shot.
