Best Bonnets from the New York Easter Parade

It's that time of year again. The biggest runway of spring is the New York Easter Parade showcasing the most creative of headgear. Yes, we might have a chill tomorrow, but spring weather was kind to New Yorkers and tourists for the annual event. Flowers, candy and other holiday motifs embellished not only hats but continued through entire outfits.

One of my favorites was the Easter Island inspired couple who created towering Moai faces as a visual pun.

There are always dressed up dogs of all sizes. I was surprised to see baby goats and lambs hanging out with a giant St. Bernard dog on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral.

I love seeing artists, vintage fashion fans, crafters, and designers bring their Egg-Game every year. It's great to watch the diversity of bonnet fans come out each year. There is a huge range of men, women of all ages and cultural backgrounds participating in a big way. 

Happy Easter folks. Eat chocolate. Enjoy the weekend.
