Hat Attack #10

Another Christian Dior chapeau spoke to me this week.  This vintage silk floral bouquet was discovered by my dear friend Thom, who was managing an estate sale for a friend.  He called me about it, knowing that I would fall in love with its multicolored beauty. Of course he was right.  Friendships that support who we are are priceless! I feel like I have a flower garden on my head, which is a state of mind that I highly recommend!

Hat Attack #9

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

 Royal Blue, I'm not done with you yet!  I feel more alive when under your spell. Royal blue vintage felt hat with fringed brim and feather purchased at Fabulous Fanny's HERE during the hat shopping spree with  the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas HERE.  Pieces accessorizing the hat are vintage estate sale treasures discovered over the years.  The scarf was tossed about with no plan!

Hat Attack #4

 Photo By Daniel N This vintage hat with high crown and swooping brim, embellished with pheasant and marabou feathers, caught my eye from its perch high on a shelf in the hat room.  It was of course purchased at an estate sale years ago.  It was last worn at a dear friend's birthday party, feathers flying on the dance floor. Today, November 1st, is Nelson's  birthday.  To have been well-loved and to have loved with all of my heart allows me to live my life to the fullest in this place in time.  I cherish my memories, moving forward, as
