GOD SAVE THE QUEEN AND HER HATS
So sometimes I wonder, what would have happened if we had lost the Revolutionary War, and that this defeat had so dampened our revolutionary spirits that we resigned ourselves to forever be one of Great Britain’s colonies? Would Starbucks sell mostly tea instead of coffee? What would our accents sound like? And, most importantly, would we have awesome hats?
As you might have guessed, this blog will be about the third question. Not so much answering it, but more of an homage to the wonder that is British hats.

On a separate note, before I started this blog I had no idea that derbies were such a wonderful treasure trove of woman’s fashion hats. I feel like this is way better fodder for parties that the mint julep, polo shirt stereotype.
Back to the British and their hats. Why don’t we have occasions where we can wear more ridiculous hats? I’d like to start with weddings and slowly work our way up to any social gathering.
Which of the Epsom Derby hats do you like the most? Would you like Americans to pay more attention to hats?
