Millinery Maven



Love these looks from the spring/summer 2010 collection of milliner Eugenia Kim.  I can’t decide which I covet more, the sequin beret or orange bow fedora…?  To be honest, I don’t know if I could pull either off, it takes such confidence!  Are you a hat girl?

    ooh, the one with the orange bow – love it! i always want to wear hats…but i swear, they never fit – they’re always too big and i end up looking silly!

    When I was young, my dad used to tell me that he thought I looked nice in a hat, that I was a “hat girl.” Looking back, it seems like a sweet thing to tell a daughter.

    I think the fact that, despite his encouragement, they still make me uncomfortable is a testament to the universal difficulty of wearing hats. :)

    I WISH I were a hat girl. You have to have the right charm and insouciance to really pull it off (think Lauren Bacall). I’m working on that….

    Joanna — I’m working on it too!

    Dancing Branflake — Whatever works, right? xo

    Natural Health — The fedoras are hard to pull off for just about anyone!

    Love that orange bow fedora! But the only hats I can really pull off without being really nervous are the wide brimmed beach hats. Those are flattering on anyone, and us pale girls absolutely need them. I’m always lusting after jaunty little hats though, maybe one of these days I’ll get up the guts to wear one.

    i don’t think i could pull off any of these looks just yet, though they are lovely! i’m easing myself into becoming a hat person with the purchase of my first big floppy sunhat. i’ll admit i feel a little silly wearing it but it’s nice and cool (and sunburn-free!) underneath!
