Hat From the Past

A Flashback Thirty years ago today, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip toured a naval dockyard in San Diego during their visit to California. The Queen wore this nautically-themed suit and captain’s hat – an unusual hat shape for her. It’s a little too theme-y for me, although theme-y was pretty common in early 1980s fashion.  For some reason,  the whole ensemble reminds me of a Pearly Queen!

    • Good observation- I hadn’t noticed that because the whole outfit is so busily patterned. I’m not sure that the bow makes this hat any better (or worse, for that matter!).
