What to Wear to the Daughters of the American Revolution Christmas Party

 Daughters of the American Revolution Christmas Party

by Kathleen Lisson

I wore my Abigail Aldridge fascinator to the Van Rensselaer Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution Christmas party at the Country Club of Troy.

Dress: JS Boutique Sleeveless Sequined Dress (Macys)
Necklace: Ross-Simons Amethyst & Diamond 

This fascinator has certainly expanded my wardrobe - I never bought purple dresses until I found this beautiful hat at the Hat Shop in Soho, NYC. Now I have several eggplant / violet / purple ensembles! I even have a set of Amethyst jewelry to match! 

Has a hat ever expanded your wardrobe?

  1. Kathleen, this fascinator is gorgeous!!! I love purple! X

  2. Oooh, and I got the most gorgeous blue cloche hat for Christmas which makes me want a blue coat!!! X

  3. You are always so nice and stylish. And you wear your hat so beautiful. I wish you a Happy New Year

  4. This fascinator is so strikingly beautiful. I love the delicate, timelessly pretty jewelry you partnered it with. I tend to opt for smaller/daintier pieces when my hat is the star of the show and vice versa, so I would have opted for similar jewelry if I was wearing that great fascinator.

  5. Oh, fascinators! My not-so-secret love. I love hats, too. I am trying to integrate them more into my everyday wear.

    I was wondering if you had ever been to Style Crone? Judith (who has amazing style) hosts a monthly hat link-up and I think your chapeaux would go brilliantly there. stylecrone.com
