Just Churchin’ it.

February 6, 2009

It’s been a while since I’ve brought up the flannel grey hat with an over-sized bow trimmed with Swarovski crystals that Aretha wore on Inauguration day. After recently reading an article in the Star Tribune, I am gladly bringing you news that you won’t have to travel as far as Michigan to get a similar hat. Just Churchin’ It (yes, that really is the shop’s name) in St. Paul sells similar versions of the hat, designed by Phyllis Gilliam, the wife of a reverend in St. Paul. The similar hats sell for around $130.

On another note, Aretha Franklin was asked to donate her Inauguration day hat to the Smithsonian. But she’s still deciding if she wants to part with it. So basically, no Smithsonian, you can’t have her hat. Sorry.
