Choosing the hat was very exciting - select a brim size/shape, then the crown height, then the trimmings. The designers were excellent in choosing colours and materials which looked right with my outfit. But I'm glad I took a friend who supported me when we (occasionally) didn't agree with them. It's going to have bright blue feathers and sparkly bits!! And look good from all directions for the pics. I've never had anything custom made before.
Tomorrow its Leonard Cohen.
And next Saturday term starts.
