Sunday Best

For the show and tell suggested by Cerri and Analise, I have but one hat to show. At first it seems like just another straw hat with a pretty pink bow, but that black veil adds a bit of mystery. At one time I had another hat, but I can't find it and I fear I might have given it away. It was a little black number, no brim, with a black veil and and a curved arrow made of copper-colored beads. The arrow seemed to be pointing to the face underneath, reminding me of those old roadside advertising signs meant to attract attention for the place below.
