National Hat Day!
I just found out that today is National Hat Day. They did not tell me about this in millinery school. (Then again, they didn't tell me about St. Catherine's Day either, and she's the patron saint of milliners. The state of modern post-secondary education, you gotta wonder... )
The origins of NHD are murky. The Headwear Association (est. 1908) doesn't even know what they are.
Is this why my milliner boss gave me the day off today? Well, no, but I'm sure he would have if he had known about it himself. With pay, of course.
In honour of this murky but esteemed occasion, herewith a new offering: my new cozy toque, with the cunning fold at the back.
