Hat Attack!

July 25th, 2011

Photos by Daniel N

A dear friend gifted The SC with this delightful hat which she found on eBay.  Talk about a full blown hat attack!  This teal/rust/ecru print fabric hat fits on the head like a small cap and the front of the design presents folds of fabric with wired ‘petals’ that can be adjusted for varying expressions.  A turn of the head offers a significantly different viewpoint.  It was great fun to spend the afternoon with my accessory of choice and pull together an outfit comprised of a vintage ecru silk men’s shirt, vintage teal earrings, vintage rust silk chiffon scarf, gold/rust bangles, and vintage gold heeled sandals all discovered at estate sales.  The ecru cotton Tracy Reese cropped pants were purchased at a consignment shop several years ago.  Not only do hats heal – they entertain, motivate, and provide focus during difficult times!

    These colors are elegant on you. Men’s silk shirt? I’d never have guessed.

    Now that is what I call some eye candy!
    The colors, the textures, the slim pants with the long tunic and the metallic shoes —
    overall effect: stunning.

    What everyone said! Plus I love the teal earrings – that burst of color just hinted at in the hat. Great little note you added in, being the fashion artist you are. You look MAHVELOUS! ANd I just think the “Hats Heal” mantra is brilliant! I’m going to keep my eyes open for magical chapeaux like this one…

    You were absolutely made for hats, especially this delightful one. I always get inspired
    by how you put various pieces together to come up with a uniquely you outfit.

    Judith, so the fabric has wires in it to style??? How cool is that? And that is vintage? I thought that was a new thing..just goes to show nothing is really new.
    You look gorgeous and these colors are just soo rich looking. You look like a million!

    HATS HEAL is the name of your first book! Just keep collecting the photos and the stories…I think it is impossible to be depressed in a HAT! You have it!

    LOVE Carolyn’s idea that “Hats Heal” is the title of your first book. (First of many, OK?) You have a beautiful way with words, are as stunningly beautiful as a model, and you have a great and heartfelt story to tell. Publishers, take note and get bidding for the rights to this story!!!

    Also, thanks so much for putting my blog on your list of “blogs we love.”

    Much love from England,

    The cream and rust set off your hair and skin beautifully, and that is one majorly awesome hat that few people could carry off. As pointed out by another poster, it’s nice to see you in a colour other than black–a good sign, I think!

    The colors are fabulous on you. What a sweet and sensitive friend to buy it at this time especially!
    I am still in Chicago, hatless but doing well. For me, red lipstick and yoga are therapy for now.
