  • What to wear to the Autumn Carnival 2010?  The hat is by far the most important accessory
    by Philadelphia Philpot Millinery
  • What to do with an outdated/damaged hat

1. For the Autumn Carnival we wear felt hats -  not straw please!
2. Wear the hat towards the front of your head and slightly tilted. It’s more alluring. – MEN too!
3. Keep the hat on all day…it is part of your whole look.
4. Elegance is the key when dressing for the races. Please don’t wear your nightclub dresses!
5. Strappy little dresses may not be great if the weather changes..
6. Your hat, your shoes and your handbag should match or compliment each other.
7. Wear comfortable shoes – it’s a long, day and you don’t want shoes that hurt your feet.. and please paint your toenails!
8. Please don’t walk around with your shoes and your hat in your hand!…It’s not a good look.
9. Make sure your handbag is big enough to hold your race book, your sunglasses and your make up….an emergency supply of bobby pins, safety pins and foot petals.
10. Have something to eat  before you start on the Champagne!…..HAVE FUN

  • Have you got an outdated hat?
  • Are you aware that your hat can be restyled, re shaped and given a gorgeous facelift?

A couple of seasons ago, yellow was the big colour. I was sure I had a yellow hat from the 1990′s somewhere! After rummaging around in boxes, I found it. The trim was quite funky, but the shape was really dated. I pulled it apart, re-blocked it into the beret shape, used the old trim, and added an elegant feather. This is the result.

The ever so stylish June Dally Watkins wore it at the Inter Dominion a couple of weeks ago. She LOVED it!

Please let me give your hats the facelift they deserve.
