I have been in a hermit mood lately. Do you ever get those? You know, where you can go days or weeks without stepping foot out of the house and feel totally fine?
Mister can only make it a few hours without going stir crazy. I can go months.
I am in a months mode now.
I have not been out of the house much since October. If I did not have to eat, I would not go out at all. But alas, eventually our cupboards run bare and a trip to the grocery store is in order.
Today was one of those days.
I used the occasion to bust out one of my unworn dresses.
The grocery store is always a good place to test out a new outfit. It is full of unbiased strangers in a non-threatening atmosphere, who are unsuspecting of what they are about to see. Their reactions are immediate and genuine.
My intent was to test out this dress, but it was my hat that stole the show. Everyone noticed it, no one knew what to call it.
It is unfortunate that ladies now days are not accustomed to wearing or seeing other ladies wearing hats. So much so, that they do not know what to call them when they do.
A young collegiate complimented me on my “headband”. I thanked her graciously and carried on.
I am a wearer of many hats. Literally. You can see a few of them here.

I have gotten quite a few questions about my curls lately. I have not done a tutorial for this style, but it is simple to do.
These were created using a curling iron. Everything was curled upward, slipped off the iron and clipped into place until cool. Once cooled, I removed the clips and loosened the curls with my fingers.
