On Monday, we shared with you Kate Middleton and royal wedding style rumors. Today, it's only appropriate that we present photos and details from one of the most fabulous events we've attended in a long time!
The pop-up shop at the aMuse Haute Hats Show
The aMuse Haute Hats Show took place on Saturday in downtown Wilmington. But to simply call these beautiful masterpieces "hats" almost does them a disservice. Each and every piece was an intricate, well-made, gorgeous work of art. aMuse showed us pieces that defied gravity, fascinators that flitted and fluttered with feathers and classic sunhats that even the most traditional belle would adore. These gorgeous styles would make even the princess-to-be swoon.
A beautiful bridal look...calling Princess Kate!
Owner and milliner-extraordinaire Jan Wutkowski presented styles to the theme of Springtime in Paris. Models wore hats of Jan's design as well as styles from Hats By Andre, Forme and Hats to Di For! Each piece was as beautiful as the next. We all had such a hard time selecting our favorites!
The audience nearly rivaled the models' style and beauty as we were all encouraged to wear hats and no one disappointed.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't gotten into the whole wearing a hat thing, now is the time! Hats seem to be THE IT accessory for spring and we have an amazing selection right here in our own backyards. I cherish my hat from aMuse made by Forme and dream about passing it down to granddaughters one day. It will be so fun to share the memories of what I did and where I was when I wore it. After all, anytime you wear a hat, you definitely have a good time and feel special!
