I can't resist a hat

Biana Duhamel was a singer and actress. She was seduced by the Baron de l'Espée, who built her a villa which was little more than a gilded cage to keep her in at his disposal. She left him.

Aw! Not quite a fairy tale with a happy ending.

Happy Mothers Day Anji.

Stunning hat! Love it! I can't resist a good one either. Interesting story. I'm glad she left him. :)

That is quite a hat!

Just this week I was thinking how I would love to wear a hat on a regular basis and what sort of style could be incorporated into everyday wear these days. I was thinking of a hat with some sort of brim to protect from the sun. At which point most people in the UK would think it is a bit optimistic worrying about the sun!

I hope Biana had a lot of fun in her life.

A Lady's life: Not mother's day here until the end of May, Thank you and the same to you! I suppose that she was considered very modern and emancipated for her time.

Isobel: me too! I hope that someone will pass htis way with more information about her.

Doris: I'd like to wear hats too. This one would need a new outfit to go with it, new shoes, new bag, new gloves....
