Absolutey mouthwatering millinery from the design studio of Laura Hubka

Looking cosmopolitan as ever, my neighbor Theresa models one of the fabulous Hubka creations. We both flipped for the Fuschia!

And speaking of Cosmos, we enjoyed one before the Shakedown over at the new Meiji restaurant in the neighborhood (right next to Blackbird). YUM! The bartender made the best lemon twist I’ve ever seen…
