Toasting to my birthday.

I showed you some of my inspiration for hat purchases I'm considering this season in my last post. For now, I share with you a bit of my hat obsession. Some serious. Some playful. Some practical. Some fashionable. Always stylish and appropriate!

Dates range from 2006-present, in no particular order.

Will share many more, eventually. These are pics I had quick access to, so no special or planned photography!

Wanda: thanks! you know how much I looooove hats!

NotsoChiara: Thanks lady.

Marissa: heee heee. not hardly but I have friends in the industry. I'm a private chef so that's how Emeril and I got to cook together on his show. Lisa and I are in the same circles in Atlanta, for the most part; Chris Tucker went to HS with a friend of mine so I see him every now & then; Janelle and I have met a few times at different music industry events---you should see a pic of me and Cee-lo! ha. And Isaac Hayes is a good friend of mine that I met through music production. :) Atlanta has a lot of celebs here.

Chic 'n Cheap: Awww, thanks.... I can't get enough. Looking for about 8 new totally fabulous ones to add to my collection! Thanks for checking them out.

XO to all.

The hat came from a vintage shore on 5th ave.

The title was certainly not an overstatement! Haha you're so fabulous, each hat is amazing and you pull it off so well! They're not an easy accessory for most people and you look amazing in them.

I like hats they just don't like me. I have a small head so its very hard for me to where hats as much as I'd like. You def. are a person who makes the hat look good.

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

you have a hat for any occasion and i love it! i'm a total lover of them too, the 30's vintage cloche is gall-dang gorgeous. but right now i just can't get over how amazing that photo is of you and Janelle Monae - my girl-crush on her is massive!!!!!!

AND how cute are you with your sister in the pic from the below post?! omg, i love your Easter bonnet so much, your little smoosh face is waaaay sweet! ♥

pea ess: so happy you liked those owl vases, aren't they rad? i'm sure there's tons, it was a new for spring addition, so online would have them for sure. xo
