Who is this dame anyway?

Gabi Well, since you asked so nicely.

My name is Gabriella A. Vigier, but you can call me Gabi. I'm a current third-year journalism and English major here at the University of Florida, with an outside concentration in Italian language.

What the heck does that have to do with the Fedora? Well, again since you asked so nicely...

I've been in love with this hat ever since I first saw it in Robert Zemeckis' "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" From then on I was hooked on the hat, but no one could ever tell me anything about it.

What was I supposed to get? I come from an Panamanian family! We don't do Fedora, we do Panama Hat. Please don't judge me though. I didn't know any better.

That's where this site comes in. I've wanted to know about this hat since I was 10 years old, and now here I am one cool-hearted dame making a site that is, "lookin at you kid."

I have a genuine affection for this hat. Therefore, if you feel I have missed something, or would just like to have a good 'ole conversation as to how this hat is the best, please do e-mail me: gwrite1@ufl.edu

Oh, and in case you are wondering, this photo was taken of me during Halloween 2006. If you are asking what I think you are asking, honestly, I really don't know what I was going as. I just wanted to wear the hat.
