So we picked up this fabulous vintage hat from our friends at Bahoukas Antique Mall in Havre de Grace, Maryland several weeks ago while traveling down to Washington DC. I honestly could not contain myself when I spotted this pink gem out of a line-up of hats on the wall that would make the Andrew Sisters green with envy. The stars must have been aligned because this beauty was made to fit Mammaâ€™s exact head sizeâ€”and the veil adds just enough drama and style for our little fashionable gremlin (I know, itâ€™s sick. Mammaâ€™s wardrobe is growing at an alarming rate). I also had the owners of the shop in stitches when I shared with them my intentions of having Mamma wear the hat and blogging about itâ€”and because they found it so entertaining (and slightly concerned that a pug actually has a blog) they gave me a huge break on the price which made Daddy Biscuit very happy!
So here is she isâ€”our little girl having a Cyndi Lauper moment! Yes, pugs just want to have fun and Mamma is leading the conga line right into her dog house! Or perhaps sheâ€™s preparing to attend service on a Sunday morning in the South, or a Gay funeral/wedding in New Orleans, or heading to the Opera at Lincoln Center, or a short walk through the Champs de Ã‰lysÃ©es like that annoyingly beautiful girl in the Dior perfume adsâ€”the point is, with this hat, the possibilities are endless!
