Ask and you shall receive. Earlier this week, Aretha Franklin serenaded crowds of supporters at Barack Obama’s inauguration. But it was her bejeweled hat that stole the show. Many wondered where they could get such a head-turner to warm their own noggins.
Tiffany Hsu at our sister blog To Live and Buy in L.A. has the answer: Orders are pouring into Luke Song’s Detroit-based Mr. Song Millinery, a store the Queen of Soul has patronized for 20 of its 25 years. Though the heather-gray wool hat ain’t cheap -- it costs upward of $500 -- Hsu writes ‘fans are welcome to drop $179 on a similar satin-ribbon version.’
