Whenever I travel I have my eye out for hats. It’s second nature and part of my DNA at this point. So when in San Francisco, I called milliner DeAnna Gibbons HERE, with the intention of visiting her studio. She generously suggested that I visit Hats On Post HERE, a delightful hat shop tucked away on the sixth floor of a building close to Union Square HERE, blocks from our location.
I was not disappointed. I discovered the above headpiece by Celine Robert Hat Design France HERE, who is “famed for her chic bandeau and turban style hats.” In the process of researching Celine Robert, I found the site LOVE HATS HERE, which provides access to headwear by many talented milliners and the ability to virtually try on a chapeau. One thing leads to another for seekers of all things millinery!

Yes, it now has a perch in the hat room! Its complex and intricately twisted black straw form is sprinkled randomly with raspberry colored beads, and I’m in hat heaven. But as I have resolved, I will be downsizing one hat whenever one is added. I have a rack in my basement studio for just that purpose.
Thank you DeAnna Gibbons, for your referral to Peggy Purcell at Hats On Post, in the photo above wearing a whimsical wide-brimmed fantasy. Thank you Peggy, for a fabulous San Francisco hat experience and for the “hat chat” that was engaging and hat affirming.
I’m linking up with Sacramento’s Share-In-Style: Flowers HERE at Mis Papelicos. I think my hat will have to represent a flower! I wouldn’t want to miss the festive party.
Now it’s your turn to throw a little headwear love my way!
Please display your hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you adore, give The SC an AUGUST HAT ATTACK and kindly link to Style Crone somewhere in your post. Can’t wait to see the beautiful contributions that you share throughout the next week. Participation will be open through Thursday, August 7th.
