It all started in the '80's for me, when I saw the movie based on the Marguarite Duras' semi-autobiography, The Lover. To be honest, the movie was not-so-good, but I love the outfits worn by the girl, a simple mix of humidity, slips, straw hats & a fedora. I bought a boater and wore it all summer. Lately, I've been fighting off the urge to wear one again. Seeing so many street-style pics increases this craving. And of course so many of my blogger faves are big on hat: Meggs from Another Day make hats an essential part of her signature style. Until I find the perfect straw hat for me, I'll make due with my collection of rad chicks rocking the boater.
