Whimsical, slightly anachronistic, purely ornamental.
Serious times call for frivolous indulgences. My recommendation: a glorious spring hat. Sometimes beautiful and elegant, sometimes outrageous and disruptive, sometimes all of the above; hats are minor indulgences (relative to a fine meal, even, not to mention sports cars and island vacations) that can be a personal statement, a celebration of style, a nod to history, a gesture of respect.
Spring hats, in particular, are like fresh blossoms emerging after a long dark winter. They are emphatically hopeful.
Over these past winter months, I found choosing spring hats for the shop to be a lovely escape from the serious issues of the day. I hope you'll come by and tour the collection. Perhaps you can stop by this weekend for our annual "Champagne & Chapeaux" celebration? It's also my 22nd anniversary here in this Dupont location -- time to celebrate all around.
And, whatever you do, be sure to be frivolous.
