Aretha Rocks!

There was a lot of buzz today over the crystal-studded bow/hat that Aretha Franklin wore to the inauguration. (I wasn't able to watch the inauguration since I was working, but saw clips after I got home.) Her hat was definitely not in the subtle category. But I love Aretha -- She is a legend in her own time and can do and wear whatever she wants!



Actually, I don't usually go for the 'out there' fashions, but I was so taken with Aretha's hat that I called up Presbyterian Gal and Bobby... and we all agreed. Next year when we do the Elf Dance, we will be sporting Aretha Bows.



Booyah!

It looks better on you, but you should have gotten it in green velvet!

You could bill yourselves as the Three Habidasheries (sorry...it's early and I can't find my dictionary)

Presbyterian Gal said...

I knew you were waiting for today to post us in those fine hats! We will definitely feel like natural women (well, except Bobby) wearing those! But with Bobby, it's in his kiss anyway. I know I will survive any jibes that come from it, because that's the way it is. Because you know that when we jump to it we get the respect we deserve! And no one needs to rescue me from that grey flannel because I am willing to forgive! So people get ready!

*bows* Thank you.

I like the way the hat coordinates with the slightly shaded lenses of your glasses.

I am so excited about buying a hat at Casual "N Chic today. The neat thing is that it is exactly like Aretha's!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know Dust Bunny will be jealous as will my loving daughter. By the way, I look smashing in the hat.

db, Good group name (but tricky spelling)

PG, I agree with Jennifer. WOW.

HC, R-E-S-P-E-C-T indeed! :)

Ruth, yes, I planned it that way! :)

Anonymous (a.k.a. Mom)--I will have to come over and check out your new hat. I so hope I can borrow it.

Well, I like the hat on Aretha ... and I think your group is original enough to get your own hat style ... just sayin' ...

Barbara B. said...

Hmm... good point, Rev SS :)
