Today my mother and I went to Portland for a little shopping. We got some good things at Buffalo Exchange, and I finally broke down and got a new Chanel red lipstick (In Gabrielle if anyone is interested). I was scraping the remaining bits of my last tube, in a discontinued color of course, but I think I like this one better!
We parked across from Pinkham Millinery, and I've always been curious about this local milliner so we explored.
Ok. If you are a hat lover. This is a dangerous idea.
We walked in to find some of the most beautiful hats I've ever seen, in person or print.
The magical creator, Dayna, greeted us and showed us her favorite designs. She was so friendly and helpful, and indulged my gasps and squeals over feathers and felt. She even let me try one on, it's basically my dream hat, so y'know, if you don't have a Christmas present for me yet Sam...*hinthint*
Let's just not talk about how this was the one and only day I went Downtown and didn't wear a hat.
Lesson: Always dress for town.
But it is that time of year when summer stretches on and on, and I am less motivated to wear yet another sundress. I want suits. And boots. And glorious tweed.
