It is that time of year again! Summer vacation! Two things you must not forget as you head to the beach....... your sunblock and your summer hat! Here is a great option for you fedora hat wearers! Try the "Renaissance". This hat was featured in Glamour '08 but still remains a favorite among fans! Also, head to Malia Mills if you are heading to the Hamptons! Conveniently located in the Hamptons is a Malia Mills store! Ask for the "Fly Girl" hat!!! We hear they are a favorite and are rapidly selling out!
Hope to see you at the Bloomingdale's Trunk Show this Saturday, June 19th from noon- 6 pm! The Spring/Summer '10 collection will be featured! Also, Lisa will be on hand to take custom orders as well! Hope to see you there!
Congrats to all the winners of the CFDA last night!!!! Jason Wu, new kid on the block! Goes to show you that if you take chances and live your dreams anything is possible. If you didn't know.... Jason Wu was an up and coming designer and designed the inagural dress that Michelle Obama wore to the ball!
This is what I am wearing for this hot and sticky afternoon! Perfect pairing of the Mariner hat with DVF sundress! Great attire for an afternoon walk through the neighborhood to visit the many artists studios. Try this combo on an afternoon full of frolic and fun this summer!
Looking ahead to Fall/Winter'10, the trend will be camel. Camel trench coats for the fall and winter camel cashmere coats will abound. With recessionary times upon us think 40's and the understated dressing with muted colors hence..... camel. Hats were hip in the 40's. This "Annie" hat is great to pair with a trench or overcoat. Here is a great look for Fall. This is one to sure to turn heads.
It is the beginning of summer and it is time to plan for your outing to the Saratoga Racetrack this year! I have included a picture from the summer of '42. I like the understated clothes and hats in this picture. It is reminiscent of simpler times. It goes to show you that you can look sleek and understated with a hat. I hope this picture makes people feel more comfortable about wearing hats and that hats don't always have to be showy and over the top!
