Fashion Friday 4/26/13

Time to get back to hats.  My good friend (and occasional guest blogger here at Sappho’s Torque) Margo was in town this week, and to celebrate the fact that we got to visit in person, I’m going to offer up this picture of us in some springtime hats that we love.

Here we are, headed out for lunch at an informal little tea house one day just  few years ago, before Margo moved to Seattle.

The best part about this cloche I’m wearing — which my brother gave me a few years ago for my birthday, and which I believe he found at Victorian Trading Co. — is that it works so easily with my hair up in a low bun.  The straw is light and softly flexible and really comfortable to wear.

Here are the sweet details on the side of the hat: a mauve suede rose, some ecru feathers, a delicately embroidered silk scarf.

I wore this hat all day at school when Prince William and Kate Middleton married.  (Several proper ladies wore hats that day at school.  Quite a few of the female students wore cutesy little tiaras with the occasional little veil attached.  One incredibly awesome 9th grader showed up in a wedding gown.  I could not have been more impressed with her verve.)

We’ve had some chilly weather this week, which has brought some of my warmer hats back out of the closet, but it warmed up again today, so we’re back to the flowers.
