Since we’ve been graciously invited by our contacts at Winterthur to join them for the 32nd Annual Point-to-Point steeplechase next month, the big question around the office these days is what kind of hat to wear!  While we’d all love to channel our inner Audrey Hepburn (boy, could she wear a hat!), we decided to browse the archives of Royal Ascot millinery to see what we could find.  Here are some of our favorites – what do you think?

Or perhaps we’ll keep it simple and just stick one of our fabulous fleurs right on our head – hello glue gun and bobby pins!

    You need to get in contact with Anya at Couture Millinery Atelier She also has a website listed on her blog. How fun for you. Good luck picking a hat. You really should wear one!

    The hats are over the top and gorgeous! Let me know where you end up finding your hat–I am going to the Central Park Conservancy’s Luncheon in May. Everyone wears over the top hats and would love to find something fun and different.
    All the best, Barbara
