Project Cubbins: Hat 245 - Bucket of Pucci Edition

Day 245 / Hat 245: Multi-colored, swirly patterned Emilio Pucci bucket hat with white grosgrain sweatband and white lining. Interior tag reads: "Fabric: 98% cotton, 2% elastane, Lining: 100% cotton." Additional detail includes patch pocket (in same fabric) on crown of hat. (That's what I've tucked today's number into).

This was liberated momentarily from the Bride's headwear collective for purposes of the collection. I chose it because I found the color combination - a swirl of pink, orange, green and yellow with a dash of black and white - to be a much-needed dose of cheer.

I'm not sure what I'd exactly carry in my Pucci hat pocket -- more than likely it'd be a credit card.

So I could buy more hats, of course.

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
