Red lipstick and fabulous hats galore


Today my mother and I went to Portland for a little shopping. We got some good things at Buffalo Exchange, and I finally broke down and got a new Chanel red lipstick (In Gabrielle if anyone is interested). I was scraping the remaining bits of my last tube, in a discontinued color of course, but I think I like this one better!

 We parked across from Pinkham Millinery, and I've always been curious about this local milliner so we explored. 

Ok. If you are a hat lover. This is a dangerous idea. 

We walked in to find some of the most beautiful hats I've ever seen, in person or print. 

The magical creator, Dayna, greeted us and showed us her favorite designs. She was so friendly and helpful, and indulged my gasps and squeals over feathers and felt. She even let me try one on, it's basically my dream hat, so y'know, if you don't have a Christmas present for me yet Sam...*hinthint*

Let's just not talk about how this was the one and only day I went Downtown and didn't wear a hat. 
Lesson: Always dress for town. 

But it is that time of year when summer stretches on and on, and I am less motivated to wear yet another sundress. I want suits. And boots. And glorious tweed. 

In good time.

Such gorgeous photos, that rose hat is so pretty!
Would you ever consider doing a make-up post? I'd love to know what makeup you use for your everyday look, you always look so flawless and glamorous.

Gorgeous hats. Last year I found two lovely pill box hats for less than 4$ each in thrift stores in my local town. Now i just don't know where to store my obsession, we have a cat who loves the feathers as well!

I've not tried chanel lipstick, my first really nice lipstick was a present for my birthday this year, Guerlain Rouge in 'Garconne' and it is wonderful!

Oh, dear. If these hats are in my price range I'll be broke but will die happy.

Oh how I've long dreamed of going to a hat shop such as this - though I suspect suspect my wallet is far happier if I refrain. I'm delighted for you that you got to spend some time in such a beautiful store and really appreciate that you took us along through these lovely photos.
