Cain S. Latrani Cain S. Latrani's blog:
So, I think we've firmly established that I am not the most reliable of people to have a blog. Which is good. In a way. Mostly because I often have no idea what I want to talk about, so rather than ramble nonsensically, I just say nothing.

I've always loved the hats and bonnets of the Regency Era.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to wear hats and not look utterly ridiculous in them. A neurosurgeon once said I had an, "odd shaped skull" which means, hats slide straight down to my nose.

Really, they do.

Readers of Regency and anyone who's... Read more of this blog post »
