seeking a hat
Some of you may recall that for my book tour last year, I had a Victorian dress made (in dark red, black, and grey). Well, I need a hat to go with it — and while I could have one made custom, it seems a bit silly to drop that much money on a piece of headgear I will almost never wear.
So: please recommend to me your favorite Victorian-style milliners! My requirements are:
- late Victorian in style
- designed to perch atop my head, rather than settling down over it (I will have a rather large bun getting in the way of the latter style)
- not too expensive — less than $100 would be ideal
- either black or grey (I doubt I can match the red without a lot of hassle)
