The Eagle has landed...

In grad school, I wrote my MFA thesis about Historic Preservation on the lunar surface. I will be that girl who wrote about the moon. The Apollo missions were amazing, and I don't know how we are not in awe everyday about sending people to the moon.

A fascinator is a tiny celebration of that feat, but in the spirit of historic sculptural wigs that were topped with detailed ships in commemoration of the French Navy.
