do you remember how exciting in Jane Austen's novel "Pride and Prejudice" the purchase of hats for the five sisters was? And so costly, that some years they must do with new ribbons to pep the old hat up.
Yesterday in Delft I suddenly saw the sort-of-hat I had tried to order online, twice - and every time it was "Sold out" -
and it was just in that pale blue that I wanted!
Although till now I have kept my resolution not to buy new clothes this year, I became "hairsplitting": a hat is not a dress - a hat is a hat is a hat...
So I bought it - the shop assistant cried: "Oh, just the same lovely blue as in your dress!"
Come to think of it: I was in Delft, famous for it's Delft blue pottery...
I am 1.78m, so: tall. Which is a good thing for such a hat: I had never imagined when I looked on the photos online that it is so big!
It is VERY helpful in this heat. What do you do to cool off a bit?
