When I taught millinery in a college fashion program years ago a student complained that there was “nowhere to wear a hat” anymore. Is this because we’ve thrown out the rules and no longer dress up? Perhaps. Should that halt us hat lovers? I think not!
We’ve taken casual to the extreme so maybe it’s time to rediscover a little glamor. In that spirit I invited friends over on Saturday for a Millinery Tea to celebrate Spring and this website update. We had so much fun visiting, trying on hats and nibbling goodies.
Moral of this tale is we should create our own occasions and just have fun with hats. What’s next? Derby Day? Easter Parade? Millinery Flash Mob? Let me know what you think.
