Classic Hats October 17, 2010

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 9:14 pm

It’s our book club tradition every year to read a classic novel in the month of October.  None of us usually like them, some of us have threatened to change the rules if we are voted queen, but all of us agree they usually make for a great discussion.  This year our classic pick was The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

To make things a little more interesting this year our current queen decreed we should all wear a hat to the meeting.  Not having one in my closet at home, I took an afternoon after picking Zach up from school to check out a couple of thrift stores.  There were many kinds of hats but very few fit.  I don’t have an overly large head (I don’t think so anyway) but I do have very thick hair.  Every hat I pulled down on my head immediately popped up.  I finally found one that worked (and quite a few that looked quite cute on Zach!)

It was fun watching the women come through the doors one by one, each with a different style of hats. One even added the white gloves.  I think we all looked very classy for our classic read month.  What do you think?
