Feathers, feathers, feathers. Marlene and Celia are ready for the street. No matter when you wear the green hat, it’s going to draw attention. So, why not St. Paddy’s Day? The brown and white number with artistic feather trim is also to die for. Both are from the 1940’s.

The details they thought of for convenience and good fit are legendary.
