Mimi wearing a Fred Bare hat

Jill, sorry for the delay, but you know how wild these mannequin heads are. Here I was, spending the weekend with visiting family while Mimi took a plane and off she went to the Derby. Just arrived today, she has given me a picture for your Virtual Kentucky Derby day posting!

She is wearing a Fred Bare hat that I bought in Paris in the late eighties (one could call it vintage, but then you would also have to call ME vintage… so let’s leave it at that).

Thank you Jill for your wonderful ideas, I love your virtual hat days!


  1. You know, I think I saw her in that fabulous hat in one of the crowd shots on television. The camera lingered a bit and I thought I recognized her.

    Beads as a hat band…who would have thunk.

  3. Fabulous! Miss J LOVES the over-sized beads with gold. What great trim.

  4. Cris, there’re some Merimekko hats at HM (Pº de Gracia). I saw them today, they were ok but nothing to write home (or my cousin) about it. Just wanted you to know….

  5. Jill, yeah, I betcha it was her. You know, she’s an attention seeker!
    And yes, she does get around!
    All this makes me think, perhaps I should take her with me when I go abroad and take pictures of her in a hat in front of well known landmarks… hahaha… sort of like the garden dwarf from Amelie!
