Wednesday Fashion Moment. Our current obsession. Hats!

The right hat may also enliven our imagination of the past....an old-fashioned cloche, a picture hat, or a toque trimmed with a pouf of polka-dotted veiling is just enough to make us feel as if we were living in another, romantic age.

"A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it's the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it's the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath.

We just know inside that we're queens. And these are the crowns we wear.

If a woman rebels against high heeled shoes, she should take care to do it in a very smart hat.

"Luxurious, flirty and at times a bit sexy. We're out to prove a great hat can change your day."

Women wearing hats are at once sophisticated and whimsical....Their faces are younger and softer. They carry themselves differently, daintily, like deer. Their voices flutter a bit...even when they are talking about things like money and power and work, even when it's clear they're very much in charge of their lives."

There's just something special about a woman in a hat.

Wearing a hat versus not wearing a hat is the difference between looking adequate and looking your best.

"Fashion was not only supposed to make women beautiful, but to reassure them, to give them confidence, to allow them to come to terms with themselves."

Leave everyone wondering which is the more interesting piece of work...you or your hat.

"Few women have ever been able to resist the temptation to try on a hat and discover in the mirror a person they never suspected was there. A hat alters the image we have of ourselves, and the image others see as well. For the hours we wear it, it brings out different dimension in our personality, much as a costume aids an actress in her role."
