Dressing for drinking requires a little cocktail hat to go with your little black dress and champagne!  The fabulous Rhode Island School of Design announces an upcoming exhibit titled “Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion 1920-1980” which includes many events and a look at fashions for socializing and vintage hats by Sally Victor, G. Howard Hodge and Mr. John.  Cocktail Culture is sponsored by Swarovski.  Ohhhh sparkles and hats!    Gather your friends for a happy hour with hats, what fun!
