House of Lafayette inspiration
Love this take on a good old fashion beanie with a House of Lafayette twist!!
Poet Gertrude Stein wrote this poem that uses hats as a metaphor for the transformation of a girl - into womanhood and ultimately to childbirth - the journey draws parrallels in Gertrude's mind to the structures of colored hats: here is the poem for you to interpet as you will!
Colored hats are necessary to show that curls are worn by an addition of blank spaces, this makes the difference between single lines and broad stomachs, the least thing is lightening, the least thing means a little flower and a big delay a big delay that makes more nurses than little women really little women. So clean is a light that nearly all of it shows pearls and little ways. A large hat is tall and me and all custard whole.
Poem by Gertrude Stein
wishing you all happy House of Lafayette dreams......
