The New Year is all about New Year Resolutions. How often have we made a promise to start gym after New Years, or start our diet once again, or finally print all the pictures that are on our phones so that we have some pictures of our younger kids printed and they don’t grow up with a chip on their shoulders:)
So, while you are all getting ready for Rosh Hashanah with your menus, outfits or thinking about what New Year Resolution to take on, I want to propose a challenge for all the married women out there.
I remember as a kid walking into Shul on Yom Tov and being really excited to check out all the Yom Tov Fashion and especially all the fabulous hats. I think it would be amazing to see more hats in Shul this year so here is my challenge: Be bold and adventurous and come to Shul this Yom Tov with a hat! And there are so many options - you could wear a beret, floppy hat, fedora hat, panama hat, straw hat, the options are endless - but whatever it is, have fun with it!
Btw, if you don't see me wearing a hat in Shul it's because I wear a wig which achieves the same objective as the hat, but I still love hats and you will often see me wearing one.
If you are looking for a new hat I saw some great buys at Lulu Belle , Accesorize ,Mr P ,Cotton On and Woolworths.
Please let me know if you are up for the challenge. I would love to hear from you!
Jewish tradition teaches that a woman’s hair has great Spiritual power and holiness that for a married woman is reserved for her husband. By covering our hair in the holy space of the Shul we are respecting a time honoured tradition while celebrating the woman’s inherent dignity and Spiritual power! By taking up this challenge not only will you be making a fashion statement, you will also be doing a big Mitzvah!!
If you live in South Africa and comment and tag someone who loves hats, you will enter a chance to win a hat from the stunning ‘Lulu Belle’ collection.
In case you haven't noticed, I love wearing black and I love wearing white - and you could never go wrong wearing the two together.

If you are wondering who took these photos, it's Cape Towns latest young and hip photographer and videographer Tal Aharonov, (firstname.lastname@example.org) who's got a really creative eye , because it looks like I'm in some forest and we took them in my garden, which is quite bare at the best of times!
