Top that ...

Last week, I came within a hair of buying a French bibi. What's a bibi, you ask? Well, it's a charming style of millinery (often called a fascinator hat) that is quite petite. The tantalizing headpiece that caught my eye was much like the one shown below.


A lovely lady named Rita Crosby makes some of the most delicious hats in San Antonio. Mind you, I did not buy the little beauty, but I came really close. I would have made this purchase if I just had more opportunities to wear a hat.

But, I've come to discover I really like hats!

even those with vintage charm appeal to me.

Next time I set foot in a millinery shop or see an advertisement for hat making classes, I will definitely pay far more attention. I'm a hat convert!

I so love hat, which I could wear one and not feel out of place in my town. I have about 50 vintage hats, mostly from family when we were required to wears hat to Mass on Sundays. Let's bring them back.

Oh, Gretchen, I'm with you. I wish women with hat's didn't feel so out of place in my city, too. I would own many if I lived in Paris, London or even New York.
