My inspiration for the name of this hat was the Comedy of Calisto and Melibea, known in Spain as "La Celestina".
Celestina is also in Spanish the name of the light blue color...

La Celestina is a work entirely in dialogue published in 1499. It is attributed to Fernando de Rojas, a descendant of converted Jews, who practiced law and, later in life, served as an alderman of Talavera de la Reina, an important commercial center near Toledo.
It was one of my favorites books...very entertaining!!
The book is considered to be one of the greatest works of all Spanish literature, and is usually regarded as marking the end of the medieval period and the beginning of the renaissance in Spanish literature. Although usually regarded as a novel, it is written as a continuous series of dialogues and can be taken as a play, having been staged as such and filmed

This is the "Celestina" pillbox hat.

A hand blocked buckram angular pillbox base, covered with a gorgeous shiny Celestial blue satin and with ivory "Merry widow" veil. It is embellished with 6 light pale blue roses and two adorable soft and fluffy grey feathers bouquet.
This beautiful and feminine design is lined with a grey and silver leopard print satin and is worn on a black millinery elastic.
