Top(hat) o' the morning to you

Ever since I visited a milliner's studio in San Francisco two summers ago (and had a delicious vegan lunch prepared by her assistant and played with her cat), I've always wanted to invest in a closet of hats -- shoes too, but hats come to mind first.

"I was in Italy and I saw this magnificently elegant woman in a big straw hat, and I was so entranced by her that I wanted to see her face. Well, every time I tried to look at her, she'd turn her head and demurely cover her face with her hat," recalled the fashion designer I was interning for, as she tried on some custom-made hats for her trip to Venice.

Hats are sensual, mysterious, entrancing -- and excellent for bad hair days. When a former schoolmate who now attends MIT introduced me to GALVIN-nized Headwear in Boston, I had two thoughts:
  1. I really need to visit Boston again.
  2. I really need to visit a milliner again.

P.S. For equally beautiful hats with San Francisco-flair, visit Deanna Gibbons Millinery.
