I'm a huge fan of retro-modern fascinators like this Chop Suey Palace Hat by Topsy Turvy Designs. One of my favorite modern pin-up models, Bernie Dexter, is modeling this adorable headpiece, so you know it's hot.

The Chop Suey Palace Hat looks just like something you might get from a Chinese take-out restaurant, complete with mini chopsticks. It takes a very confident woman to pull this look off, but I think it's delicious.

Implications - The Chop Suey Palace Hat's interesting name and context comes from the iconic Chinese diner from A Christmas Story that Ralphie's family eats at after their dog eats their turkey on Christmas eve. The hat is both an extravagant accessory and a work of art, which incorporates culture and humor to create a truly one of a kind look.
