The Millinery, at GCVM

This was a long, let’s pretend elegantly beautiful, post about this past weekend. Really, there were two exceptional passages reflecting on the year and the people at the event. Then, my laptop went black and silent. I need, really need, to replace the battery.

This past weekend, I escaped the challenges of this year filled with ughs, pains, and headaches, by fully surrounding myself with nineteenth millinery and wonderful people. I had two lovely assistants, Elyse and Elizabeth, who were there just in case, but also provided excellent conversation and companionship.

Katie came in to say hi and the bonnet somehow ended up on her head. It was absolutely perfect for her and her impression.

I have hardly any photos of people. I have a bunch of photos of the millinery pieces. But, you see those all the time. So, I won’t share those other than to say these two just went up in the Etsy shop:

I did try to take some photos of myself Saturday morning before anyone arrived. Here are the not horribly blurry or excessively stern looking shots.

  1. You look so nice and I love what you did with your hair. You look nice and professional! Hope you are healing well and this will soon be all a memory. I have a petti and sacque from after my surgery also and I’ll occasionally drag it and wear it “just ’cause”. Comfortable!

  2. You looked great. Glad I had a chance to chat a bit about a new hat, have my head measured and get some ideas from you. Will be in touch over the fall/winter months.
