I mentioned in my hat shopping post that none of the photos in that post were of hats I’d actually purchased, just ones I’d tried on for fun. Here is a fashion blog post with the first of the hats I DID buy that I wore out in public. I wore this outfit to a happy hour last weekend. You can tell that this is not a “cancer hat” because it reveals the absence of hair, if you look closely (it’s more obvious from the back). Earlier in my treatment I wore a straw fedora with a scarf, but as mentioned in the hat shopping post, at this point I’m waaaaay past caring.
Hat: Scala, from The Village Hat Shop | Earrings: BP.Nordstrom | Scarf: Unknown | Tuxedo Jacket*: Moda International | Blouse: Garnet Hill | Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Clarks
*Side note: The tuxedo jacket I’m wearing is part of a three-piece women’s tuxedo I’d bought in 2001. I most memorably wore it at the time with a red fedora and this same red scarf. I could not find a picture of the whole ensemble, but did find this one head shot. Ah, to have hair (and eyelashes) again …

Beautiful lady, then and now.
Great hat. You look the same age in both pictures. Pretty sure Dad has a picture of you in the whole outfit from 2001.
You look great!! That is a nice classic hat.
I’m pretty sure there is a copy of the hat picture Ted made on the sewing machine table in the small upstairs bedroom in Foster. Ask Doris. I agree with Doris; there is surprisingly little change in 15 years.
You look pretty sharp there, kid, both now and 2001. What do you mean young? You are still young! Love Dad.
