WHAT HATS WILL YOU BE WEARING THIS SPRING and SUMMER?
Oooo! Spring scents sneaking up on you ... Mmmm, smell them?
Warm breezes creeping in too. We can't wait to get to have
a stroll on the beach ... even if it's in a sweater (lightweight
and pastel, of course). We want to feel new and young and
freshly bloomed, no matter what our age ... SPRING is like
that ... teasing us with promise.
Promise YOURSELF a perfectly fitted hat.
A hat that flatters you and protects you or launches you
into a new season of FUN!
PINK! says the fashion magazines! Pink is THE color ...
unless you read a different magazine ... then it's GREEN,
darling! Grab a little green. GREEN is all the rage. Green
is the scene... unless, of course, you don't look good in
No matter what clothing color you zero in
on this spring and summer, Our Natural color knotted
sisals are PERFECT with your entire wardrobe.
We'd like to suggest a few classic
styles from our Spring and Summer Collection.
We vote for knotted sisal --(All hats
shown above) all lined with capenet, of course
- our clients
are worth the extra step to
guarantee their summer hat
retains it's shape longer!
He'll love one too!
For the bride, designing her headpiece or hat is as important
as choosing her dress.
It is the most beautiful headpiece she will ever wear and
an opportunity to wrap up in personal fantasy rather than
the dictates of fashion.
I will custom design your bridal headpiece or chapeau as
individual as you are.
Custom designing for the mother of the bride
or groom, bridesmaids and flower girls are a part of the
magic I’ll help you weave for the wedding day.

"yes, it certainly helps."

YOUR WINTER HAT AWAY with CARE !
hat will thank you next fall when you meet again.
BRUSH it gently with a lint brush or a clean toothbrush
STUFF the crown gently with tissue.
REST it atop an old lampshade that has been cut down
enough to support the tissued crown. This will prevent the
brim from supporting the weight of your hat. A similar
shape can be made from poster board
