It becomes more difficult to go out in the evening as Nelson fatigues as the day progresses. We’ve been going out on Friday nights since 1977 and we’re not about to give up on it ‘at the drop of a hat.’ We went to a new restaurant that I discovered when I was parking for yoga last week. We love trying new places and it didn’t disappoint. Restaurants are like theatre: the atmosphere and decor of the space, the other patrons, the staff, and the food. It is a riot for the senses.
For the occasion I chose a hat by Kate Ferretti, a famous Denver milliner of the 40’s and 50’s. This white fur felt number is covered with a splash of white, black and striped feathers which delicately fringe the face. Interestingly enough, I have never worn this hat which was purchased at an estate sale and it’s been patiently sitting in the hat room for about 20 years. Date night was the perfect event for its debut in this century and it topped off the vintage 60’s white wool coat with faux fur trim with aplomb. The vintage jewelry and long black gloves finished off the ensemble and took us away into the evening without hesitation. Hats motivate!
