Lady of Hats

The beautiful and elegant late Princess Diana was often known as the Lady of Hats. My dad used to admire her a lot for her beauty and grace. I was only 13 when she passed away tragically, however, I looked up to her for her humanitarian work. She had such a charming smile that even as a child, I was mesmerised and influenced by her love for hats.

So here’s a record of younger Yolande and her hats.

1987, 3 years old

Looks like as I get older, my taste of hats get wilder and more strange? I spotted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Elmo hats  in town the other day and I really wanted both of them. Daniel was obviously rather embarrassed by my over-excitment. I reckon I’ll get them since Theo will DEFINITELY be spotted in funny hats! Well, his Nana (Dan’s mum) has already got him a dinosaur hat so mummy’s gonna join in the fun!
