mad hatters

August 24, 2015

It takes guts to don a topper. And I’m not talking about baseball caps or floppy fedoras. I mean an objet d’art du tête. On the patio at Terroni yesterday, I met a woman in her late 70s sporting a classic straw cap sent over the edge by a huge black straw pompom. “You look fabulous,” I told her. She wore the hat with such insouciance and confidence, and was genuinely delighted (surprised, even) by my compliment. I think we reach a certain age/stage in our lives when humour and chutzpah trumps trends, and when noshing on tagliatelle with a giant pompom on our heads is the new fabulous norm.
