Easter, The Superbowl of Hat Season
Yesterday was Easter Sunday, kind of like the Super Bowl of hat season, and the photos that I found online did not disappoint. The ladies wore colorful hats, large hats & beaded hats that beautifully complimented their outfits.
Not only is Easter, or Resurrection Sunday, a religious holiday, it’s also the beginning of the Spring shopping season and the National Retail Federation (NRF) estimated that Americans would spend $15.9 billion on candy, clothes and gifts — and hats!! The clothing segment accounts for $2.6 billion of that total, according to the NRF 2014 Easter Spending Survey.
Splurging for the Perfect Easter Outfit
Getting a new Easter outfit is not just a rite of passage for children. Many adults who don’t go to church any other time will shell out big bucks to be sharp just for that one day. And for the faithful, this is the time of year to go all out for that perfect outfit. It may not make you any more holy, but you will certainly be noticed.
How can you not strut a little looking this fierce? I can assure you that if I ever acquired one of these lids, there would be no standing me – but in good way of course.
The following hats were designed by Mr. Sax Unlimited, Harriet Rosebud, Michael A. Designs and Adrian Dana. These milliners are artists with very loyal customers for obvious reasons.
