Hat Attack #31

February 1st, 2016

February’s Hat Attack features a vintage Norma Kamali baby leopard print toque with matching gauntlets.  These pieces were “seized” from my hat shop in the 1980’s and they traveled with me on my recent trip to Sedona.

I decided that they needed to be focused upon more fully after I fell in love with them once again.  They hadn’t been on an outing for years and are now having a revival!

I love hats that are “shape changers” and can present as different personalities on a whim.  This Norma Kamali beauty transforms from toque to beret at the drop of a chapeau!

    fabulous, fabulous! You keep “topping” yourself! And the matching gauntlets – I am thankful for the beauty you bring to us, Judith – these photos are just beautiful!

    HELLO MY DEAR FRIEND, i COULDN´T RESIST JOINING YOU TODAY, AFTER ALL THE CURL ON TOP OF MY HEAD IS NEARLY A HAT, LOL

    Now this set is something I would love to have. It is so chic and high hats are good on my head. Mind you, you have a classic face and short hair… I have… a different face (haha) and longer hair. But if I had seen the hat in a shop I would have certainly tried it on. Together with those gauntlets, the set is striking.
    And I also adore your jacket. Big love again from my side. I just haven’t got a hat to participate in the Hat Attack.

    By the time I get to commenting, everyone else has pretty much covered the bases. Judith, you are like a piece of really good chocolate in my life. Your posts make me smile (and sometimes think.) So appreciative that I stumbled on your blog some years ago.

    That’s brilliant the way your hat transforms from towering crown to oo-la-la beret. And you look stunning in each style, especially with that tailored suit and gauntlets. Thanks for hosting again. I’ve started playing with hats more from your example and all the gorgeous women here.

    Oh Judith, I do so love that elegant hat- all the more so because it is a shape shifter! So clever! I’d love to find a hat of this kind! I also adore your beautiful caped jacket- so pretty and elegant.xx

    Judith, you just don’t see gauntlets being worn enough (if ever) now days. I so wished they would bring them back around, I simply adore them. Your entire assemble is breathtaking. I seriously didn’t know they even made hats that were “shape changers”, how magnificent is this? Now I know what is on my bucket list of vintage hats.

  19. Suzanne

    I have to say I love the way you are able to change the shape of the hat. It is magical.

    bisous

    What a lovely hat, Judith. And yes, what a great shape changer it is. My yellow hat does that but I do love the print on yours. And the jacket – it’s divine! It’s altogether a stunning outfit.

  32. Curtise

    Gloriously elegant as always, Judith – the shape-shifting hat is wonderful, but I am also in love with the amazing shoulder detail on your jacket. You look fabulous! xxx
