Sad HatterPosted: October 12, 2011
Embarrassing fact: I have a big head. A big, round head. This is an issue because as the weather has gotten cooler, I have become more interested in looking for hats. A few weeks ago, I tried on a fedora in a Calvin Klein store and was disappointed that the hat did not fit around the circumference of my head. And before you ask, no I wasn’t wearing a ponytail. And no, it wasn’t a child’s hat. It was a hat in the women’s section: cute but not fit to my proportions. Actually, I did end up finding a hat in the store that did fit me. And yes, it was in–you guessed it–the men’s section.
I can fit into some women’s hats, but unfortunately, just like clothes, not all hats are made the same. If I find a good hat, I will end up wearing it for probably the rest of my life depending on if the weather calls for it. What can I say? I am loyal to both my clothes (hence, my clothes that have stuck around since high school) and my hats. And doggone it–it’s just so hard to find a well-fitted hat for my circumferentially-inclined head.
With that being said, I will keep you posted on my adventures in hat shopping. I’ll rub my round head for good luck.
