Back to Derby Day 101

We Take Our Hat Off to Suzseams Millinery

Vintage-Style Headwear

suzseams millinery shop!

Dear Diary,

It began with the royals, and then the Derby sealed our fate. We are officially obsessed with hats.

May 5: We scour the Web, city streets, even the mall, trying to find someone who can feed the fixation.

May 7 (5:03 p.m.): Hope almost lost. We hear about Susan Morehead’s Suzseams, an authentic millinery shop online, right under our nose.

May 7 (5:15 p.m.): Browse the collection of handcrafted, vintagey styles. Click on the seagrass cloche and a pink visca straw number. Get light-headed.

May 8: We learn of Morehead’s photographer hubby, who makes the pine blocks on which she molds each timeless headpiece. Love.

May 9 (11 a.m.): Make a beeline for Inman Park. Decide on the pink one. Think about where to wear it and settle on patio happy hour. Today.
