Blue Monday: This young lady doesn't look as though she could ever be blue! Wearing that gorgeous chiffon-like dress and pearls - not to mention that spectacular hat! It looks as though she leads a pretty nice life. I've always wondered what it was like to live back in the times when one could actually wear a hat like that in everyday life. It must have been amazing to strut down the street wearing these etherial clothes and accessories.
But then the practical part of me starts to think other things: wherever did she store that huge hat? Was there a hat box large enough to contain it? She must have had a closet set aside just for her hats! The hats that have survived from this era are mostly, alas, in disrepair. But sometimes you can still find a gown that looks as though it were worn yesterday. Female fantasies...
happy weekend! -
