Need your own hat?  I found some good ones….


  1. I absolutely love hats and wish that women in this country wore them more often so that it wouldn’t be such a stand out, but more commonplace. I have hats for ever season and love wearing them. All of the articles were interesting and I’ll be going home today to use the lemon/baking soda method to get my nails summer-ready!

  2. Great video of Adrian Piper dancing! Thank you for sharing it. I appreciate it. Would that we could all dance with her.

  3. Fascinators remind me of the plumes horses wear in some countries when pulling carriages. They look better on the horses!
