Fashion Friday 3/29/13

The first hat I ever made, and the one I’m probably the most proud of, is a spring-infused confection which I almost never wear now, but which I feel is appropriate to share with you today…

I just love the way all these blooms came together!

…because it’s a gorgeous late-March day in Texas, the flowers in my garden are blooming like their lives depend on it — and they do, because the more beautiful they are, the more I make time for them (sad but true) — and this weekend it is time to rotate my fall and winter clothes back to the armoire in the office to make way for my spring and summer wardrobe.

My lovely friend Elani graciously agreed to model the hat for me when she came over today to help me roll grapeleaves (Lebanese style) for Easter.

I made this hat at a party where a bunch of my girlfriends all came over and made hats.  We then wore our hats out to tea at a fancy hotel.  We called ourselves The Hat Ladies.  Maybe some day I will tell you that story, too.

Happy Spring!
