"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn't go and doesn't suit me"
which is based on a poem by Jenny Joseph called "Warning." The Red Hat Society was started by a woman named Sue Ellen Cooper, the "Queen Mother," who felt that women over 50 were so accustomed to going unnoticed, and felt that had to change. She wrote a book on the subject. There are even stores that carry Red Hat Society items. Think I am making this up???? Check it out.
By the way, my garden club won a People's Choice Award for our interpretation of "Buddha's Footprint."
