Hats are a clothing article that I really want to like. And by hats I mean things that you would not don for the sole purpose of protecting your tender scalp from the scorching heat of the Texas sun or the bitterness of a Midwestern winter. Hats just as an accessory usually seem superfluous to me, which is a terrible shame really. When I do see someone successfully pulling off a hat, I think brava (or bravo, which is a bit less likely). Unfortunately, my perusal of Modcloth today did not help my conditioned prejudice:
I looked at this cute little hat and the only thing I could think of was George Costanza's rat hat.
OK, I could not find a picture of the rat hat (stills of Seinfeld episode are really hard to find online) so this is the original $4000 Russian sable hat, but you get the idea. The former hat is ruined for me unless I see you in a place like Ekaterinburg in Spring, Winter, or Autumn.
