A Girl's Night Out With The Mad Hatter
Hats That Just Make You Feel and Look Good
#In the sixties, seventies and eighties, women held #Tupperware, Avon and #Mary Kay parties. They would gather in homes and dream over their next purchase of, what to store their leftovers in, what perfume they would wear or makeup they would use. These daunting decisions were limited at the time but now in two thousand eleven, times have really changed or have they? Today, A Girl's Night Out can be completely done through video conference on the world wide web, through email, Youtube or numerous other sources of electronics that do not include personal contact. There is still something profound about the gathering of women with the infinite ability to purchase something. It is an ultimate source of pure joy to see these type of events continue down to our day, even in the form of a hat fashion show. We were encapsulated with brims, pillbox hats, feathers on headbands, panda bear hats and a arsenal of styles that made some of the guests look as though they stepped out of Vogue magazine. Their strides were jubilant as they experimented with various styles of hats. The evening was filled with fun and good food.
Marlene Verdecchio, the Mad Hatter, explained how she started her hat business, after losing her job about seven years ago. Marlene, decided to do something for herself by making hats. Such entertainers as Sarah Jessica Parker, have worn designs that are similar to what Marlene creates. They consist of elegant little headbands with discreet feathers of unique colors. Her designs are often worn by young women attending their proms or by blushing brides and bridesmaids. Similar styles such as the gold pillbox hat, with the bow, worn by JoJo, photographed on the right, has also been worn by such entertainers as Pattie Labelle. The black sun hat worn by NeNe, photographed on the right also is a major design featured in numerous fashion magazines this season. Marlene's inspiration developed as she went into stores and did not see a variety of women's hats. "I would see baseball caps, so I decided to do hats," said Marlene. Her collection consisted of western, fedoras, porkpies and sun hats. Marlene also featured artificial furry, little leg warmers that could be worn over boots to keep you warm. The majority of the items available were twenty five dollars or less. Reasonable prices along with the joy of enhancing exterior beauty, brought Marlene and her guests pure happiness. Laughter filled the room as future top models sported their new looks. For a fun night out with girlfriends, plan a hat party with Marlene, the Mad Hatter.
