Glamour in Oz
Pillboxes and fascinators are great ways to make a statement without: a) spending lots of money on a huge hat and b) feeling that you HAVE to wear a big hat to an event. Bigger isn't always better.
Lots of people think that pillboxes are more appropriate for spring or summer events. Granted, the Melbourne Cup is happening when it's lovely and sunny and warm in Oz (we're very jealous!), but pillboxes and fascinators can be worn year round. With lovely soft wool felt, tweed and even tulle in the right winter colour, you can wear them whenever you like
