Following the delicious meal (I had crab cakes) and the camaraderie with the other lovely ladies in attendance, I was approached by the stunning Queen Mother. Imagine my elation when the Queen Mother invited me to be a member of this Red Hats Society Chapter. She presented me this beautiful pin.
On Sunday I went to the mall. I was determined that I needed appropriate accessories to wear to the meetings. My first purchase was this lovely pair of glittery red earrings.
This beautiful hat is decorated with red and purple feathers. The hat actually makes me feel glamorous.
I like the shape of this hat. It is a little more subdued than the hat decorated with red and purple feathers.
I love this boa made from red and purple feathers. I think that it will jazz up any outfit.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens . . .. . .
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
