Cocktails in the garden may sound great but if you’ve got the sun beating down on you, you could get dizzy. Have a panama hat on hand (or, even better, on head) like this $160 version from Ellen Christine Millinery made with antique fabric roses, and you can keep on having fun without getting burnt.

    Total Nightmare!

    I went to Ellen Christine to have my mother’s wedding dress altered for my own upcoming wedding. This should’ve been a very positive experience. But unfortunately, the “3-month” process was a total nightmare from beginning to end. I was overcharged for the quality of work…Ellen did not make all of the changes to the dress that we discussed…I went to the shop 4 times thinking that it was the final fitting and that I would be able to leave with the dress in hand. However, there was always something wrong with it that I needed to point out to her. There were loose beads or even beads missing! One time, I went to try on the dress and there was a huge black stain that she said “must have happened at the cleaners”. I found her lack of attention to detail and lack of sympathy for all of her mistakes completely frustrating. I DO NOT recommend going to this shop for alterations…especially if its for a special occasion.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Everything
