i hadn't realized that i had named another song, but i suppose that it was in my subconscious...
...
what i mean is the story that the Paris Match tells...
Quote:
Empty hours
Spent combing the street
In daytime showers
They've become my beat;
As I walk from cafe to bar
I wish I knew where you are;
Because you've clouded my mind
And now I'm all out of time
Quote:
Empty nights with nothing to do
I sit and think, every thought is for you;
I get so restless and bored
So I go out once more;
I hate to feel so confined
I feel like I'm wasting my time
"i'm only sad, in a natural way...
and i enjoy, sometimes, feeling this way..."

this is a great line, imo - and many images come to mind...
all the locations...
wet cobblestone...empty doorways...smoky cafe...etc...

that's why i said 'sentimental journey'...
just walking...
sort of going nowhere except in one's mind/imagination/dreams...
thinking of a faraway love/romance...
(it's the thought of the kiss, rather than the danger---the other side of the story)

anyway-
back on topic...lol...

the store looks like an amazing place to visit...
thanks for the info and pics...
...

j'adore the paul harnden cap with the leather brim...
amazing amazing amazing...
thanks for sharing!...

OMG! "Paris Match" is one of my favourite songs; it's soooo Style Council, mod-80s, jazzy, beautiful and sad ("in a natural way")

Edit: oh yeah, something about hats ... I quite liked the ones in the "Philosophy 2014 Resort" Collection. And Annie Hall wears a mean hat. Also, Lizzie Olsen has a way with hats; she's bringing them back for me.

yeah- annie hall...
it's good, but maybe a bit Amish if i remember correctly...
...

i'm mediterranean...i can't pull that sh*t off...

i got crazy over the winter (or was it last summer?) at a charity sale and bought a vintage cloche!...
in ivory felt!...my guess is it's from the 30's...
it's by Adolpho and has a Lord & Taylor tag as well...

can you tell i watch a lot of old movies?!...
been checking out clara bow to see how she wore her hats...
hahhaa

i expect it to be at least a year before i get the confidence and courage to wear it out of the house...
but i think it's going to work ...

and.....
i got two hats...!..

though it's really been too hot to wear any sort of hat and will probably be like this for another month or two...


the first is a floppy beret in linen that looks like dark denim, lined in navy/wht polka dot silk...
it looks kind of funny all stuffed in this pic, but it really is very thin fabric, very flat and can be shaped easily...
http://usa.agnesb.com/en/shopping_on...et-hygie-2/671

the second hat is black heavy knitted cotton (like something between a t-shirt and a sweatshirt) and is inspired by this film...
so it looks like this...

I feel like I should know, but what's the movie soft grey?

Love both hats; tres magnifique! Both are alluring, as hats should be.
