lillie and cohoe

Bad hair days . .. bring them on. I have my new Lillie and Cohoe "coquette". It's made of wool and cashmere with velvet trim. I decided my first serious millinery purchase should match my coat, my mom would have no doubt approved as she sewed me several matching coats and hats when I was a little girl.
These hats are made in Nelson British Columbia where they clearly must understand about Canadian winters. The inside band has a bit of fleece that can be folded down for really blizzardy weather. If you are interested take a look on the link to Lillie and Cohoe by clicking here.
Perhaps you'd like your own.

While I wait for the inclement weather to arrive, I'll wear it with a turtleneck and jeans. We're deep into fog today and I have a hankering for Green Bean Soup.
I recently updated my label list putting the recipes in some semblance of order so that they can be easily found. I hope you find that helpful.
Have a wonderful day my friends.

  5. I am in awe...the gorgeous hat AND a link to the milliner!
    It really is a smashingly attractive hat on you. So much cuter than smashing hair inside an old ski cap on a cold day.

    And by the by...if someone thinks they don't look good in a hat; they just haven't found the right hat! It's like saying you don't look in shoes, or with a purse. Assessories have to match each woman's glorious personalities.

  13. The hat is very cute, Lovella. Of course, it wouldn't be cute without you in it. I strolled through that little hat shop yesterday with my niece... I probably wouldn't have taken a second look without your instigation... very fun!
