Hats were still worn daily by women in the ‘50s. They could be very large, or very little, and were held on the head using elastic linings and long hat pins. They were made from straw, wool felt or satin for evening, and were often decorated with feathers, beads, ribbons, flowers and nylon netting
They were worn in a variety of colors to match every outfit.Hats added the final touch of 1950s glamour to a woman or girl’s outfit, particularly in the early 1950s.
These beautiful black and white shots of 1950s hat styles were taken by photographer Philippe Pottier.
Christopher Kane sent Crocs down the runway of his spring/summer 2017 collection.
(“Crocs” are quite possibly the ugliest but most comfortable shoes ever. everyone wears them from babies to old farts and rich kids to poorish kids. they are very heinous looking). via Urban Dictionary.
From pool slides to Crocs, it seems that every season there’s a new “ugly” shoe to be coveted by the more adventurous fashion crowd. And despite, everything they go against, for some reason stiletto-clad editors and style gurus everywhere are favouring the acrimonious trend for garish footwear.

Chunky, clinical and vaguely orthopaedic-looking. Podiatrists everywhere are cheering for joy, we’re sure.
For a few seasons now, gross fugly shoes have been creeping and quietly elevating themselves from fashion taboo to street-style staple.
When the Scottish designer Christophrt Kane decided to send Crocs down the runway of his spring/summer 2017 collection the fashion world divided but alas, months later, Vogue have hailed the rise of the controversial shoe as this season’s must-have trend.

Keep your sexy pizza rats, your sexy Snow Whites, your sexy hashtags.
The best Halloween costume ever belonged to this woman in 1930, who is clearly going as “a candleholder who’s sick of your goddamn bullshit.”
Apparently, Mrs. Cubitt was Camilla Parker Bowles’s grandmother.
The longer you look at it, the better this photo gets.
