The fashion world has always baffled me. I’ve watched TV shows where clothes designers concoct outfits that I don’t see anyone wearing anywhere outside of the fashion runway. Don’t get me wrong. These designers have amazing creativity. I just can’t imagine my neighbor Marge heading off to her job at the courthouse wearing a big feathery hat, 18-inch heels and a dress that, well, could basically be illegal in 47 states in the union.
This long-standing opinion of mine regarding the fashion industry has undergone a recent adjustment. This is thanks to some very imaginative hat designers. A number of these top-of-their field fashion gurus have created head wear inspired by ice cream. I’ll admit that some of these fall into the category of novelty hats. There are a number, however, that are bona fide designs. I’m even thinking of getting one for Marge as a gift. I can only hope she’ll wear it to work. I’d love to see the look on the faces in the courtroom as she performs her job as court stenographer.
