My Hat Diary
Yesterday the wind almost
blew away. Why, this weather is I
more like March than August
It's just terrible on the corn, too, t
these hot winds. I was shopping
yesterday and met Mrs. Ray- f
burn. We stopped and chatted a T
few minutes. They say she is 5
the greatest gossip imaginable, f
perhaps that s the reason I like
to chat with her so well. Well,
gossip or no gossip, she is stun
ning. She looked just as if she
had stepped out of a fashion
book. Her clothes and hat were
absolutely stunning. It was of -r
"Yanki" blue and "Liberty" gray. T
ine nat was small, mgner in the
back. The side part was of the
gray and the top of blue, and the
material was Georgette crepe.
Wonderful gray goura feathers
were perched directly in front,
and that gave it a very smart ef-
T feet. Mrs. Rayburn wore a long,
X flowing veil of gray. .This added
T delightfully to the stunningness
of the costume. Mrs. Rayburn
just told me oodles of news, but
I'm not going to mention it for
fear you might give it away.
