Hats used to be one of my favorite accessories when I was in high school. But sadly, I don't have much chance wearing them very often now. You can probably count how many times I've featured a hat in this blog. Not more than 5 times. Not because I no longer like them, I think they always look so chic and cute, but rather due to the inconvenience at work when I have to meet 4- 5 clients in a day, I have no choice but to wear hat only when I go for an event, travel or when I get off from work.
It was so exciting that last week, I had a perfect excuse to dress up a little bit more dramatic (than usual) with my hat at the Longines Singapore Gold Cup. As elegant cocktail dress code with hats was a requirement, I had no reason why not to go all the way to be creative and to have fun with it. Getting a cocktail dress was a piece of cake but getting a right hat to go well with it was indeed, a challenge to me. Nevertheless, the challenge didn't last very long as Eskpade came to offer me their limited-less choice of hats to chose from. Better still, they even customized a hat to match with ANY dress that I would want to wear on that day.
I picked a satin V-neck empire waist floral tank dress out of my wardrobe, took the photo of the dress and sent to Kristine (owner of Eskpade). 2 days later, she sent me back a photo of the headpiece that she personally hand-made it just for me, I was hooked. By the way, the headpiece that you are seeing on this blog entry is what I'm talking about. It's the best dress-hat combo that I've ever seen/ worn. It's close to perfection, isn't it?
I told her once and I'm going to repeat it again: My dress was NOTHING without this headpiece. Never thought of a small headpiece could make such a great difference on the outfit. I had great time at the Longines event, received a lot of compliments from different people on my outfit and I couldn't feel more proud of telling them how did we come up with the whole idea. It was fun, fulfilling, spontaneous and that's exactly what Fashion is all about. Take a look at the photos below!
