Health and safety hazard?… but boy the hat is glamourous!

Picture taken from the film Easter ParadeFirst things first, I want to say THANK YOU for your support. This last week my mother has been in the hospital and she will probably go home tomorrow as she is feeling better. As you can imagine she has been my priority and I’ve been spending my days there, and also some nights.

To the left is a TV snapshot from the TV film “Easter Parade” (the musical number of the magazine covers).

While I think the woman looks gorgeous (although my mom thinks it doesn’t look like a hat at all…) I think the hat should be sold with a disclaimer.

Disclaimer: The milliner accepts no liability whatsoever for any personal or material damage that might arise from the use of this hat, including but not limited to traffic accidents, getting run over by a truck, getting married to the wrong guy, spilling coffee over the person standing to the right, not to say neck pain from having to turn to the right everytime someone talks to you from that side.

Let’s keep on smiling!


  1. Hope your Mom is feeling much better soon! I love your idea of marrying the wrong guy because of a millinery malfunction. Made me chuckle! K Q:-)

  2. Glad your Mom has rallied, and is heading home. Hospitals are never fun, home is always so much nicer.
    Your comments about that hat were priceless. And to think of how many fashion shows lately include hats that are plastered on one side of the head, just like that. Everything old is new again!

  3. So glad to hear your mother is doing better.

    I have a hat-related question for you, unrelated to this post! Can you recommend some places to learn millinery in Spain? A young man from Mexico emailed me through my blog asking if i knew of anywhere he could take millinery courses from Spanish-speaking teachers. He is willing to travel to other countries, so i thought you might have some good suggestions for me to pass on to him.

  4. Just a tip…check out the fun hats that Jane Carlson made in the Glorious Hats link on my blog. The girl is a hoot!
