The Mistress just loves herself a good, fabulous chapeau to make a entrance. And Easter is one time durning the year that many swank women and a few classy queens par take in wearing a beautiful chapeau, with the exception being the Ascot Races in England. I don't know why women stopped wearing hats. I have always viewed the hat essentially as a functional article of clothing. Don't hats exist to keep one warm, dry, shaded from the sun and to make one self look fabulous? That's why they should be in our homes, or so I believe. Even the male Mistress has so straw hats and one pimp hat! But dress hats however have more in common with sculpture than with clothing. You know what I'm talking about. The haute couture, over the top hats the Mistress loves. Hats not only need not function, they don't even need to fit. The good milliner- when succeeding at the highest level, like the good sculptor, understands and skillfully manipulates the medium of materials. The results can be interesting, entertaining and fun to wear.
