Susanne Juul ruffled brim hat

This is one of my favorite royal hats ever created by Susanne Juul and one I would dearly love to have for myself.

It was made for Crown Princess Mary who wore it in Copenhagen for the annual celebration of Danish Flag Day.

This is my favorite view of it.

NFL helmets reimagined by super design team

Ultimate Effects have reimagined football helmet designs for all 32 teams. The images below are via the Daily Snark. Go there now to see them all.

I have picked my own personal favorite for each team. No particular order. I would love to see the NFL upscale its image on the field even if it’s only with helmets to start with. No doubt they would have to hire someone to design uniforms that would suit these ambitious looks.

Let’s go!

The Cleveland Browns helmet is stylish but not as dramatic as a lot of the others. The one I love for them — referencing the Dog Pound — is the one below. Probably not going to see multi million dollar athletes playing in a helmet like this.

Here’s another referencing fans I don’t see happening but fun.

Uh, oh. I am now seeing these designs being credited on Pinterest to Paul Bunyan Designs. Not sure what’s going on there.

Later, gators.

Céline Dion takes Paris in the best couture of the season for Vogue

Paris. Parisattitude.com.

It’s been ages since I have been here on my personal blog. I have been super busy at work and with Hattingdon. These activities were greatly hampered by a rotten summer cold that hung on for weeks. This is kind of about Hattingdon.

Coming up in a minute is a super cool video I came across and became instantly enamoured. Not because of Céline Dion or even Paris. I do love Paris.

Every time I have gone to Paris I have said to myself, “I am going to learn French and come back here and live as long as I like”. I never learned French. I never moved to Paris. Sigh.

What enthralled me about this video are the headpieces.  Now the headpiece you see below in the video’s teaser image is not very impressive and has been done countless times. However, there are others throughout that are absolutely scrumptious. Some are even shall we say… Marie Antoinette-esque.

Watch and you will see what I mean. I am inspired. Enjoy!

Ta-ra.
