SPECIAL EDITION: EASTER BONNET

some of my fondest memories of easter when i was younger was going to church, and then easter dinner after church of course (I didn’t much care for the easter egg hunts, i’d would had rather set the table).  we would all have new outfits, shopping for easter was a very big deal, everyone would be in their sunday’s finest.

my mother would always wear a fabulous hat. i particularly loved her straw wide brim hats- so chic! sometimes they would be big and floppy, sometimes shaped like a large fedora, some would have a black grosgrain ribbon wrapped around them, or sometimes big pink flowers on the side. i always thought she looked so pretty.

i though i’d celebrate this easter memory with some legendary style icons and great beauties in straw hats- just for fun, let’s call them ‘easter bonnets.’ happy easter! enjoy!

    1. As a long time and ardent admirer of yours, our of complete respect, I proffer the following, minute correction. It is as follows: Although, considering the vast welath and INFLUENCE of Ralph Lauren et al, I would think that Sophia would prefer to have her ‘correct and legal’ name following her adorable photos – which is loren. Not lauren. That said, Happy Easter to you and yours.

      1. thanks paul- noted! i appreciate you calling this to my attention, i did know better- happy easter!!!
