Holiday Hat Season

20151113_062132With Remembrance Day, over my thoughts turn from my first book, Dear Harry (a compilation of my grandfather’s World War I experiences) to hats. While putting the finishing touches to my upcoming book on childrens’ clothing, I’ve also been dealing with family illness and my husband’s surgery. But the holiday hat season is gearing up and I’ll be kicking it off with one of the millinery museum’ s retrospective fashion shows at Pearl and Pine Retirement Residence on Friday. Since they placed a full page ad in the Hamilton Spectator, I’ve been receiving calls from hat-hoarding donors of wonderful vintage pieces, so I am in high spirits.  Norma Shephard

I am also looking forward to all that the holiday hat season has in store. Mostly Maria Curcic’s store. I will be wearing some of my old favourites, of course, but on the lookout for that something new that is just right. Yes, I have already ordered and received Curcic’s Green Vixen cocktail hat which arrived perfectly packed and padded along with a stack of her business cards. I will happily pass them out to other buyers, keeping my fingers crossed, of course, that no-one buys the exclusive pieces I already have my eye on.  I urge you to check out her online store. The quality and ingenuity of her pieces can’t be matched. 20150519_102159
