Hat Attack #2

September 1st, 2013

This vintage large brimmed three dimensional sauceresqe hat was gifted by a friend, who also has a vintage collection, on my most recent birthday.  Its label is Adolfo HERE for Montaldo’s HERE, a women’s specialty shop in Denver that closed years ago.  It’s navy and off-white straw and structured shape signal the end of summer days and the twice yearly seasonal transition that takes place in the hat room.

Enough about my hat.  I want to see yours!

Please display your hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you adore and give The SC a September hat attack.  I can’t wait to see the beautiful creations that you so generously share.  Participation will be open through September 7th.

Ariane at Style Sud-Est is hosting Show Me Your Style – Blog Hop #3 HERE, so I’m taking my hat over to join her fabulous gathering.

    Judith, you look *stunning* in that hat, positively fierce!

    Oh that fabulous flying saucer of a hat is a beauty, Judith! Dramatic, gorgeous and chic, just your style! xxxx

  5. Vix

    What an incredible hat! It is so dramatic and a work of art, just like you! x

  6. Greetje Kamminga

    Love these hats and especially yours Judith. But alas… I cannot contribute.

  7. SizzleandZoom

    These are some bold and beautiful hats. Your navy and white roundabout hat is charming!

  8. Anne-Marie Bruun

    Very adorable hat. It looks fabulous and beautiful. I’ve always liked hats with small tassels. I do not think that’s the right word but I think you know what I mean.

  9. Catherine @ Not Dressed As Lamb

    Judith I just ADORE your hat – it’s absolutely amazing!!!! I’m soooo going to be Tweeting about it. And I have taken over your link up somewhat – sorry – but as it’s just once a month I had to get all my August hats (and headscarf) in there pronto!! ;))

    I still think this is a brilliant idea, a few bloggers are doing more themed link ups and I love that. Thanks for hosting my lovely!

    I LOVE your hat, Judith! You do look as though your saucer landed in the back yard!

  11. Trina Grandinetti

    Oh, Judith, your collection of hats is astonishing. Every one has such a uniqueness to it. But the best quality to each of your little lovelies are the stories that go along with each and every one. I would love to inherit an end of summer hat for my collection.

    What an unusual yet striking hat, Judith! Here in Nashville the temps are still in the 90’s so summer is far from over for us. But it is time for me to take inventory of my closet to make room for other things 😉


  13. Tamera

    Oh Judith you look like you could grace the cover of a 40’s fashion magazine!! Just stunning!!

  14. Gabriala Brown

    That is an amazing hat SC! It would work so well with a New Look dress, fantastic! You look radiant and your blue eyes are sparkling! xoxoxo

  15. Paula

    Love all these hats! The first of September came around so quickly! Hopefully, next time I will participate, cuz I love hats! xoxo

  16. Joyatri

    That hat is a beauty! So sculptural.
    Thanks for hosting this hat/head ornament party. I can’t wait until the cooler weather when I dig out my vintage hats.

  17. Melanie

    So many awesome hats on gorgeous women! Your saucer hat is saucy and clean and makes my eyes spin. Love that, Judith. I’m not really WEARING my hat but I almost never go out without a hat to hand. Thanks for the party.

  18. Val Sparkle

    This is great that there’s a Hat Attack when there’s no Visible Monday.

    Your hat is just amazing! It’s so unique, and I even love the name of the maker and the shop – Adolfo for Montaldo’s. Fabulous!

  19. Ann

    Oh dear, I love your hat! It is spectacular, such a fine sculptural beauty. This is such a good idea. I’m going to join in with my flower pin in the hair post.

    Your hat is a joy, and I love the little bit of background on it. You look radiant as always and I’m so glad I was able to participate this time around. Now to go back to check out the other fabulous people in their hats!! XXXOOO

    What an impressive and unusual hat! It looks so beautiful and stylish!

  24. Desiree

    Dearest SC, You’ve chosen a most magical hat for adornment and it shows off your brilliant smile so beautifully. Regrettably, I will be a hat lurker for HA#2, unless tomorrow’s doc visit produces miracles. I’m so happy HA has taken off and bloggers are embracing the concept! xoxoox

  25. Geraldine

    LOVED all your hats. I just don’t have a good one to share right now.

    Happy Week to Everyone, G


    I would love to join you all in your hat parade, but no hats here, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Love, love, love.

    Hey, it worked! Maybe I should misspell my blog name every time. I usually have a really hard time linking up! The correct spelling is:

    Thorne Garnet

    Judith, honestly I think you can put on ANYTHING and look gorgeous. That hat looks fabulous on you. I enjoyed reading about the history of it.


  29. Sheila

    Judith, you look amazing – I love the saucer shape of that wonderful hat.

    Thank you for this fun link-up!

  30. WendyB

    I’ve got the “Close Encounters” theme in my head now 🙂

  31. Amber of Butane Anvil

    Judith, you are just as wonderful in symmetry as you are in asymmetry – wow!!! Love your hat, and everyone else’s – thanks so much for starting this tremendous event!

  32. Bella Q

    This post was made just so I could join in your Hat party! You look amazing, and I’m so glad I’m here with all these wonderful ladies.

  33. Sue @ A Colourful Canvas

    Now that’s an inspired and inspirational hat!!! I get a little giddy on these hat attack daze…off to visit others! Thanks Judith for hosting such a creative link up.

  34. Tamera Beardsley

    Judith, I must say again how much I love your Hat Attack! I have been coming back daily to see all the latest entries… of such individual and stylish participants!

    Going to the book store today… I must get my copy of your coloring book!!

  35. Susan Partlan

    The Hat Attack series is fun. I love your 3-D sauceresqe hat. Talk about cutting a profile!

    Btw, re: your comment on my blog, I’m happy to help with biz analysis questions if you like.

  36. Jan Graham-McMillen

    I’ve gotta find me a hat!!! I’m saving the few I have for your wintry meetings coming up … but I just don’t wear stuff on my head during the warm weather. Even my real cowboy hats are trash. Sigh.
    But you all look beautiful. I’m so impressed by everyone.
    Judith, you are straight out of the Dior New Look show. Beautiful, and still so modern looking. Perfect.

  37. Emalina

    What a unique and extraordinary hat, so beautiful on you. Congratulations to you and all these other wonderfully stylish ladies on your fabulous millinery!


    your hat is amazing

  39. Pam@over50feeling40

    Fabulous ladies!! And I love the picture of you at the top, Judith!!

    We used to have Montaldo’s here in Raleigh. They moved out under cover of darkness and left the mall high and dry. I used to go in once in a while. They had sales clerks who looked down their noses are nearly everyone (me included) and I decided I wasn’t going to give them any more of my money. I guess too many people felt that way….maybe that’s why they had to close.

  41. Jeanne....Collage of Life

    Fantastic! I love them all…what a fabulous idea! Your hat is extraordinaire and you look wonderful in it! 🙂

  42. Sylvia @ 40PlusStyle

    Lovely hat creations everyone. Pity I missed the party this month but will try again next time!
