Hat Attack #9

April 1st, 2014


Cocktail hat.  Headpiece.  Fascinator.  Terms dear to my heart!  Today my vintage headpiece is composed of feathers and silk veiling.  Years ago it was discovered in a vintage shop in Cambridge, which is sadly no longer open.  I entered the store with a friend, and there it was perched on the wall, calling to me.  I found it irresistible.


It’s been with me ever since.  The pink and chartreuse color combination greets me daily from the hat room.


The top of the headpiece reveals the artistry of the milliner.


Sometimes I wear the feathers, which resemble a blooming flower, on the side of my head and often, as in this photo, I wear the feathers “straight on.”


In fact, this hat could be worn in as many ways as one’s creativity desires.

My photographer is hysterically funny.  I love a hat that stays on my head when I’m overtaken by laughter.

    I always look forward to Hat Attack every month for the unique and bold chapeaux you share with us, Judith. This one does not disappoint. Stunning!

    What fun! I love the colours and versatility of that fabulous hat, it looks so different when you wear it tilted forward, sad that the shop is no longer there! x

  5. Melanie

    It’s a blooming garden! What a fun hat. I just love your laughing photo. Thanks for the party, Judith.

    Lovely as usual. You wear hats so well.

    I love your laughter, and that bloom of a hat! I think you are such a good influence for me- I wear hats and think- Judith would like this. Lately, I say that a lot. Working on an impromptu post just so I can join this hat party- wouldn’t miss it for the world!

    Judith, that is a really exquisite hat. And how clever you are, to wear it in different ways, and to keep it on while throwing your head back in laughter! Your many years of hat-wearing training have paid off, it seems! xxxx

    Fabulous!!!! and how exciting to have a ‘ hat room ‘.

  11. Chris

    omg, I’ m so jealous!!! I LOVE THAT HAT!!!!! Probably because it’s perched on the head of such a lovely person. Both are gems! Thank You for this enjoyment.

  12. Jill

    Glorious hat, such wonderful colours and as usual modelled so well. A true expression of a milliners art. Thank you for Hat Attack and bringing hats to the fore.

  13. Jean

    The colors are divine, and the workmanship is exquisite. Of course, the gloves set it off perfectly, as does your lovely smile (give Daniel a hug for me!!). I’ve been horrifically busy since I’ve returned from my Great Adventure but I will be joining Hat Attack in the next 24 hours, I hope. In the meantime, sending love to you and yours. You look beautiful. XXXOOO

    That hat is a work of art! And it makes me want to go to a cocktail party. But first I need to get some hats…

  15. Jan Graham-McMillen

    Okay. Now spring has officially started for me. How beautiful and delicate, and so full of motion. And the hat is great too!
    Not kidding at all, but the delicate little hat is wonderful. No wonder you love it. I can imagine that it’s as happy to be out and about with you as you are wearing it. It looks like a little hat that needs to be seen and appreciated.
    At Judith’s, every hat must have it’s day!
    Happy Spring, Judith!

    This head piece is a miniature art work. And what wonderful photos of laughing you!

  17. Suzanne

    Your last photo really cracked me up.


  18. Tamera the Menopausal Supermodel

    What a gorgeous hat!! The color combo is stunning…it does look like S spring garden!!


    Sorry I have no hat, but I had to joing you all the same.

  20. mamamiau / Barb

    Judith, that is possibly the single prettiest hat I have ever seen!

  21. Shelley

    I love the photo of you caught in the midst of a completely unselfconscious laugh!! That is a stunning hat; what a cool colour combination. I like it worn with the blooming feathers front and center. Your smile in the fourth photo is just bursting with joy and warmth. Hugs, Shelley

  22. skye

    I want to be you when I grow up! Especially with a hat room. I dream nightly of such a concept.

  23. Onilda Azevedo

    I love you blog, all is pretty.

  24. Kezzie

    That hat is blooming amazing!!! You have such panache!!! Can we have a hat room tour please or is this something I have already missed on the blog?!?!!

    How many do you have?!x

  25. Sheila (of Ephemera)

    Judith, that is a stunning hat! I love the colours, and the style suits you perfectly!

  26. Rebecca

    i couldn’t help it, I added another one! I just love the idea. I hope that was okay!

  27. Judith Boyd

    Hi Rebecca, Add any amount of hats that you would like. I love them all!

  28. Sue @ A Colourful Canvas

    There is such a feeling of movement in this headpiece! Yes, I love the spring colours, but love the feeling of ‘spring’ even more. I can’t help but believe that hats do have personality given that they are made with loving hands.

    You look glorious, and your Hat Attack always brightens my day!

  29. Beth Waltz

    Feathers, flowers and laughter — spring personified!

    Will there be an official Easter Bonnet?

  30. No Fear of Fashion

    I so wanted to join but the photos failed. The ones of the hat were too blurry. So I missed this time.
    I adore your feathers hat. Such a pretty thing and of course it suits you.
    Glad you can laugh so loud. I like that too.

  31. Trina

    This fascinator is just blooming with pleasure. I adore the combination of pink and chartreuse, it’s just so pleasant and soothing. I could definitely see you wearing this cute little piece many many different ways. I found my crazy hat I’m sharing this month in a vintage shop in Westshire, England this past fall. I spotted it from the window as well and couldn’t wait to hop out of the car and run inside. And, yes, I carried it on my lap all the way home on three different planes. Oh, the things we do for the love of hats.

  32. The IFs

    Judith, that is one of the most fabulous hats ever. Thank you for wearing it, and for showing others how to wear it. For anyone afraid to wear more than one color on a hat, keep a picture of Judith in this hat where you can see it, and use it as your template. xoxoxoxo
