Hats off, EastCoastLife! - PH


No hats in Singapore.

The hat-wearing culture has never even took off in Singapore.

I was invited to a Ladies Night at a race course. I was requested to wear a hat.

I was brought to a designer boutique to pick one. There are hats which will draw all eyes to the woman who want something special at functions or balls. The average price of his hats are $450. :P
*tightens belt*

To wear for just one night!? I remembered this hat I wore at my balls adventure.

  4. Yen,
    Designer fashion is expensive. The more famous the designer, the more expensive. :)

    Happy weekend, Yen!

  15. It's a shame the hat culture hasn't taken off, after all you wear hats well! I have lots of hats, to protect my skin from the sun (and aging) especially while playing golf!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Over £200 is a lot to pay especially if they were not attractive! Nice shot of you and your hat ECL.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think that hat shaved 10 years off your age! And I mean that as a compliment! But I wouldn't pay that amount for a HAT! LOL

    ReplyDelete

  19. I usually see Japanese tourist with that kind of hat that you're wearing in the photo. :-)

    S$450 for a hat? Can eat a lot of nice food with that amount of $$$. But hey, people covet designer stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  33. is crazy 450 for a hat. even if i could afford it, i wouldnt buy it but of coz i couldnt afford it. however if i could afford it, things might b different hahahahaha

  34. I saw hats in Bergdorf's in New York for $800 up. They were beautiful, but that is really over the top.
    Did you go anyway to the races?

    Hats are still very big in Australia at the racetrack,especially for the Melbourne Cup in November.

    Have a good weekend ECL.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That sure would be a lot of money for something that you would only wear once or twice. My Mommie sometimes wears a baseball cap, but usually her head is too small to wear most hats. Hahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Good heavens, $450 for a hat!

    You look very nice in that hat, by the way. :)

    I did Photo Hunters today, too! Hope you get a chance to visit.

  42. $450 for a hat is so outrageous! I wonder if it's adorned with diamonds or maybe gold, LOL. Kidding aside, you look great on that hat!

    ReplyDelete
  43. that cant be $450 US dollars???!!! I would almost learn how to make a hat for that kind of money! I played too today, come and visit when you can!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I agree,
    can have a very pleasant time for USD 450 instead of designer "hat".

    Your's, by the way, is perfect;)

    btw. I've also posted this week

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow! What a hat! I had no idea hats never took off there. Different cultures are so interesting. In England they seem to love hats. I am not much of a hat person myself.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You look cute in that hat! Too much money for wearing only one night. Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
