Trying on hats, that’s a party!

Filed under: daily life,Millinery trivia and events,Passejada 2010,Passejada amb Barret — Cristina de Prada @ 3:38 pm

Last Sunday, April 11 2010, we celebrated the VI Passejada amb barret (Hat stroll) in Barcelona, and that was an excuse for a couple of friends to stop by, try on some hats and decide which one they wanted to wear for the event (about which I will blog shortly).

Above you can see the lovely Helena (a wonderful storyteller, checkout the blog that she writes along with my brother José Manuel: http://escuchandoconlosojos.blogspot.com/), she’s in front of the harpsichord which is serving temporarily as an exhibition area for my hats (I knew it would come in handy one day… naaah!! just kidding!!! Sorry Peter!!).

My friend Eulalia also visited me to try on hats and they both had a great time, and had to try every single hat (some of them more than once!).

It was a pleasure for me to see others taking pleasure in my hats. Thank you Helena! Thank you Eulalia!

  2. ¡Gracias Cristina! Fue un sueño probarse tantos bonitos sombreros. Me sentí como una gran dama. Y no digamos ya en la Passejada… Por cierto, que Eulalia también estaba muy guapa con su sombrero.

    Thanks, Cristina! It was a dream come true, being able to try on so many beautiful hats. I felt like a great lady. Not to speak about the Passejada… By the way, Eulalia also looked very pretty with her hat.

    Kisses aplenty,

  4. ¡Qué guay!

    La modelo ha salido muy bien mostrando los estilos de los sombreros.

    Gracias por compartir un trocito de esa experiencia, los sombreros y la alegría.

  6. Querida Cristina, fue todo un placer tanto probarlos como llevar el sombrero en la passejada! Gracias!
    Dear Cristina, it was a pleasure both to try them on and to wear the chosen hat in the passejada! Thank you!

  7. Make a hat that is green…pea green. It will match my complexion right now, as I am just so JEALOUS!!!
