The Southern belle (derived from the French word belle, 'beautiful') is a stock character representing a young woman of the American Deep South's upper socioeconomic class. Source - Wikipedia
In today's world, we all have the option of being a Southern Belle no matter what our socioeconomic background. No matter where you live, we're fortunate enough to have access to information on manners, etiquette and style even if we weren't born in the south. No need for a southern accent like Scarlett in Gone with the Wind, just as long as we embrace the sweetness of nature, such as kindness, generosity and lovingness.

This is a custom design Kentucky Derby hat order for Julie. When I’m designing a hat that I know is going to the Kentucky Derby, I just hope that it will get noticed. This was one that did and Julie looked beautiful wearing it!
Julie sent me pics of her outfit and after several emails and phone calls, we decided on the design. The final result was a taupe sinamay hat, creamy golden silk, an array of feathers and a glitzy rhinestone butterfly accenting the silk bow.

Nancy chose a flapper hat from my shop to wear at her photo shoot!
An excerpt from Nancy's email:
I was so honored when finished with the shoot that not only did I get pictures to honor my mother in law, pass down to my son, but have lasting memories of the fun day and preserved a memory for myself that will forever be in my heart.
You were a huge part of that being a successful shoot, because the hat you designed for me was the center piece.
Thank you so much for such beautiful hats you designed for me. They are always classy, great quality and custom designed for what I am looking for.
