Love the hat too. What came first, the hat or the inspiration for the dress? Very flattering...

That dress is just WOW. The picture on the review is a bit small on my monitor to get the full effect, but looking at the blog entry really knocked my socks off. That fabric is just gorgeous. Congratulations!
