Hat legacy!

It’s what happens when people have beliefs surrounding their philosophy about hats! In the next  few weeks we will share what people think about this hats and  how they make an impact on the world and leave a legacy behind!

Why do you like to wear hats?

I wear hats because they speak to my personality without me opening my mouth. Typically, the hats I wear are colorful, fun, large  with brims and I typically  wear them during the day.

Are wearing hats become a regular practice or a legacy for you? Have they been in your family for a while?

Hats are becoming more of my legacy. It don’t go to the mall without trying on hats. I love all shapes sizes but generally choose the larger styles.

When do you recall enjoying the first time you begin wearing hats and what happened for you in that process?

I first fell in love with wearing hats when I was younger. I loved seeing all the ladies at church on Sunday wear them for first Sunday. My grandmother had a hat to match every suit she had for church, and as a child I loved going to her house and I would put them all on and stay in the mirror for hours. I felt somewhat noble when I put on her hats and I’d strut around the house as if I were a ‘dignitary’.  I would Even sit down for dinner wearing her hats.

 If you were to convince someone to wear a hat, what would be the reasons you would give?

If I had to convince someone to wear a hat, I’d sell them on the fact that it completes their outfit. It’s one of the easier ways to dress up any outfit. It also shows the free-spirited side of a person. Hats are fun and wearing them shows that you are not afraid to be different.

Do you believe a hat can change one’s personality?

I definitely believe a hat can change one’s personality. It’s almost like you become a different person when you wear a hat. Certain styles of hats bring out a side of a person you may never get the chance to see. I think my confidence level changes the more I wore hats. Some think they are accessories to hide behind, but I saw them as a way to gain more attention.

What ‘s the magic that happens when you put a hat on?

When I wear hats I feel like royalty….All eyes are on me and I become the center of attention. I get the magical feeling like I can do anything,  and conquer anything. “it’s the feeling that I have commanded the attention of the room when I walk in.” A smile seems to easily accompany me when I wear hats.

When do you like to wear hats and on what occasions?

I enjoy wearing hats most on the weekends to the beach and the pool. I wear them to church and during every season. Winter is my favorite season.
