To the Beautiful Royal Couple: Dude... I'm wearing a funny little hat!

We at Pretty in Dayton Blog would like to congratulate Prince William and Princess (Kate!!!) Catherine on their wedding. Although we realize that the United States was partially founded on the concept of rejecting their monarchy's sovereignty, we are very happy to see them properly hitched.

After all, it gives us an occasion to wear this in public:

The Fascinator!

P.S. My husband reminds me that half of him does recognize you as Sovereign as he is half Canadian.

I am so going to get more of these... or maybe even learn how to make them myself!

  1. Love it! I love fascinators so much. Hair accessories are tricky with curly hair so I haven't bought one, though I would like an excuse to. :)

    That said, I am a bit awed by the gravity-defying way British women wear them. It seems a proper fascinator appears to be careening off one's face.

  2. I think the fact that you are wearing this with a Hello Kitty t-shirt simply adds to the regal-ness of the look ;-) Very cute, I think you pull it off!

  3. Amber - I think I'm going to try to figure out that gravity issue. I have a cousin who makes period piece hats so she and I are now discussing fascinators and I think she's going to teach me a bit. :)

    UneLuneBleue - Well... actually it's the only thing I owned that matched. LOL

  4. Love the hat - that fascinator is fascinating!

    I, too, wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness. They look like they are truly and deeply in love with each other. I am sure his mother would have loved Cate.

  5. I can't wait to see what you wear for the Kentucky Derby on May 7! The Kentucky Derby style consists of big wide-brimmed hats, but who's to say we can't keep the fascinator love rolling?

  6. ggggg- I really hope they are truly in love. They are adorable. I would have loved to have seen them with Diana.

    Justine - I doubt I'll have anything for May 7th, but maybe next year. I didn't realize people wore those the Derby until, well, yesterday. LOL

  7. I see Styrch slotting in as a blend of Kate Middleton and Princess Beatrice. (The best of both, naturally)
