I Hat You!

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death. 

~Elizabeth Barratt Browning~

Written in the 1800's this perfectly describes my love affair with hats.  Thank god SL has some amazing milliner's or I would simply have left with my bottom lip dragging on the ground.  I have as many hats/hair accessories in my inventory as there are days in the year and usually the first thing to go on is the hat and I often build the wardrobe up from there.

In honor of the hat, I share two of my more unusual pieces with you.

Penis Envy 

Well who else could come up with such an amazing conCOCKtion other than SevenStar Amat, designer extraordinaire of Stitch By Stitch.  I think she did very well to represent a large portion of  the male species in one lil' ol' hat.  Big and small, thick and's a veritable banquet on top.

To make it pretty, she has arranged little flowers here and there.  Talk about making a silk purse out of a sow's ear.  When Seven sent this to me, I spent day's showing it off around the shops.

Chal In A Box


Vain Inc. has been a champion of SL fashion in a multitude of ways from their Vain Inc. Boutique to Vain Magazine and everything in between. This hat titled "aLaChanel" was a gift some time ago and to be honest, I don't even know if it is still available; however, it never hurts to ask. It's so quirky and in my eyes it makes a statement. What, I don't know but it's chic in the extreme.

Yep you could wear it with an uber big gown but I like to wear polar opposities sometimes so shorts and Chanel hat make it more interesting to me.
