Shop the Final Days at ADS Hats

One of my San Francisco retailers, ADS Hats, will be closing their retail shop by the end of August. I've already removed my stock from their shelves, but they've got lots of hats on sale, along with shelving, fixtures, display cases, etc.

The owner of ADS will still be making and selling her own brand of cut-and-sewn fabric hats at her studio. Her line of recycled cashmere hats is especially popular and they make great holiday gifts, so keep an eye on the ADS website for news and developments about where to continue buying her great products.

Jill Tracy in Hollywood

Here are a batch of photos of chanteuse Jill Tracy, performing in Hollywood.

She's wearing a custom 'Belle Epoch' mini top hat in black long-nap felt. The trim is a gorgeous antique silk ribbon I found just a bit of, it's got a shadow-stripe in the weave.
