Head over Hats

This woman was as gracious as can be. I complimented her hat and not a second went by before she pulled me across the street to the hat store where she had purchased it. After my tour of the incredible shop, we chatted for a moment and I learned that she is a retired professor from Sarah Lawrence. We also both decided that you can never have too many hats.

Parisian Patriot

My friend Pauline and I were walking through Central Park when we saw this lovely lady. We admired her purple hat, which it turns out was made by Marie Mercié,a famous hat maker with a store in Paris at St. Sulpice. The changing leaves were the perfect setting for this woman and her companion’s short visit to America. They said, “We came to America for a moment to smell the new America with the new president.”
