Clayton Erikson had been holding on to this fab Peter Bentley hat for three years. She had bought it at Neiman Marcus with the Hermann Park Conservancy's "Hats in the Park" luncheon in mind. Alas, the weather the past two years had not cooperated — rainy, cold, whatever. But last week, Mother Nature provided the perfect, if drizzly, temps for the stunning outfit, all of which came from Neiman's. "I'm a Neiman Marcus gal," she said, "I go to rack those points up."
For this balmy day and the event, for which hats were de rigueur, Clayton stepped out in a black alligator-patterned leather skirt topped with a stunning white coat dress by Chloe. Her stylish black sandals are by Chanel.
