Queen Elisabeth...

Yesterday morning I was talking to my grandma and she mention that the Ottawa Citizen had done a feature on the Queen's visit to Canada and all the hats she had been wearing. It got me thinking about politics and how Canada doesn't really have a leading lady... the US has Michelle, England has the Queen, France has Cecilia & Thailand has Queen Sirikit. To be honest I couldn't even tell you what Steven Harper's [our PM] wife looks like or if she has good style? Anyways... I am just thinking out loud here... now to the post...

I decided to feature a few of the lovely hats Miss Elisabeth has worn over the years. On a more fashion related note... I used to work for a millinery and it was a lovely job creating those hats, they are just the epitome of femininity. It was lovely meeting the ladies and helping them choose a hat to go with their outfit and their event! Enjoy!

Pictures were found here...
