Hats: Good for Your Soul

Fashion Fair, an annual roadshow featuring “old-guard designer names — Givenchy, Bill Blass, Thierry Mugler” is a showcase of “…everything about African-American women that is positive,” says its CEO, Linda Johnson Rice.

Its 70s heydays long passed, Fashion Fair “elders…talk about how important it is to know what fashion really is. They regret that young folks don’t seem to understand fashion. [They’re] talking about shoes and matching handbags, fancy hats, and the kind of suit-and-tie combinations that are so slick a man seems to slide around a room rather than walk. In fact, they mean fashion as a proclamation of self-respect.”

Women's M. Miller Fur Hat Scarf - The M'lady

Far be it from me, whippersnapper that I am, to argue with the ‘elders’ – but this hat-scarf (called M’lady) is purchased by young 20-something women who like different looks for different days, moods and occasions, as well as those ladies who’ve pretty much settled in their style and know instinctively what they like and what works for them.

By the way, I’m one of those guys who’s so slick he slides! 🙂
