SPOTLIGHT: Bijou Van Ness

"Impeccably fusing the romantics of 20th century fashion in Europe with the distinct style that marked the beginning of Hollywood's infamous glamour, Bijou Van Ness embodies just that in each and every uniquely designed hat. Founder, Rehn Dudukgian, who currently resides in the heart of Hollywood, but has lived everywhere from Paris to Singapore, designs each hat by hand with pure silks, fine crystals, and vintage brooches: one of a kind materials, that have been imported from all over the world."
-Bijou Van Ness Online.

During the last week the online store for Bijou Van Ness hats opened for business, and did this change my life? Yes! My new focus is obtaining one, if not two of these hats this year. I've got my eye on either the Au Revoir Monsieur (Bottom Right), which retails for $275 USD or the Cocktail Hat in Polka Dot (Top Right), which retails for $275 USD as well. I think I NEED to wear one of these to Anna and Clark's upcoming summer wedding. Yes, I definitely think so. These look so well made, carefully designed and constructed by hand. I have no doubt that any of these would be something that you could keep forever in a beautiful hat box in your closet pulling them out year after year to wear to your favorite events.
I also see the Not-So-Secret Garden (Top Left) which retails for $150 USD on one of Princess Lasertron's brides with one of her bouquets in a similar color palette.
