Thanks to Jimbo for providing the introduction and background research for this “Monday Multiples” series.
Jimbo’s Introduction: SIMPLY MAUVE-lous! Even though Queen Elizabeth looks great in practically every color imaginable, there is no disputing how wonderful and regal she appears in ANY shade of purple! Here is a fantastic pair of hats, both of which could have been pinched from Queen Maxima’s closet! Two hats, two suits/coats – three combinations for all to enjoy.
Look #1: Mauve widely woven straw ruched toque hat with silk flowers on the side, worn with a grey, gold and mauve floral printed skirt and blouse and a mauve crepe coat worn March 17, 2000 in Australia, May 09, 2000 on the Millenium Bridge Walkway and June 9, 2001 at the Epsom races
Look #2: Mauve straw hat with tall crown, sidesweeping brim and large twist trim worn with a solid dress and patterned jacket worn June 23, 2000 to Royal Ascot and November 14, 2001 to Goodenough College in London
Look #3: The blouse, skirt and coat from Look #1 with the hat from Look #2 worn June 06, 2002 to a London Hindu Temple
Which combination to you think works best?
