The hat for February’s Hat Attack is a vintage peacock feathered Jack McConnell beauty that was gifted to The SC years ago by a dear friend.

When not on my head it rests on a hat stand on top of a secretary that sits in the dining room, which contains a few of my favorite hats on shelving behind a glass door.

I display my hats as art in almost every room in my home, surrounding myself with splendor.

I can’t resist a hat with feathered wings, which when worn, gives me the sense that I can fly into new and uncharted territory.  Perhaps wearing this hat for just a few minutes every morning would instill  courage as I approach my day.  A daily crowning, as described by Tamera of the blog Tamera Beardsley HERE.

A close-up reveals the hat’s intricate layering of peacock feathers, and has me wondering about the artistic process that went into its creation.

Hat Attack #17

December’s Hat Attack brings out an estate sale red 1960’s Saks Fifth Avenue hat with brim, which has had a place in the hat room for years.

Peering from beneath its brim provides a sanctuary and offers possibilities.

I can choose to block out what I don’t want to see, or open myself up to the full view ahead.

Or look downward with the choice of contemplation, as I entertain inner thoughts and perspectives.  The advantages of wearing hats are many, and I am appreciative every day of the year. Headwear is an important piece of body armor that adds protection, yet at the same time offers celebration and self-expression.

Thank you to my blogger friend, milliner and artist Carol Markel of Femme et Fleur HERE, for her post about The SC’s trip to three cities in Europe, accompanied by Denise, the hat.  The gorgeous Denise was designed and created by Carol, and was a special addition to my adventures in Barcelona, Paris and Nice.

I’m joining the festive party at Jill’s Everything Just So HERE, where bloggers are joining in celebrating “How I wear my sweater.”

Now it’s your turn to throw a little headwear love my way!

Hat Attack #16

November 1st, 2014

IMG_9605_2

As promised in my post about Paris HERE, I’m wearing the headpiece that I discovered at Marie Mercie’ HERE.  It was the first hat of many that I tried on upon entering the millinery salon, and it made a lasting impression.  Sometimes the first hat that I spot is the one that finds a place in the hat room!

I loved how the leopard print bow perches on my forehead and I just happened to have a vintage clutch and vintage earrings that were screaming to get in on the fun.

I found it mandatory to show this beauty from all directions!

Hat Attack #15

October 1st, 2014

IMG_9119The SC discovered this black velvet headpiece with feather and red velvet bow at The Vintage Studio HERE in Minneapolis during my recent trip to Minnesota.  I was immediately attracted to its  ability to  capture my attention, perched on a rack filled with dozens of beauties.  It flew to my head at the drop of a hat.

IMG_9121

I didn’t resist its magnetic  appeal, and it accompanied me home.  I’m looking forward to wearing it at the earliest opportunity.  Out to dinner.  A party.  Or another evening event that calls for a feather to elevates my spirit.

Hat Attack #14

September 1st, 2014

Recently The SC received a gift from dear friends Lonnie and Terry.   When I laid eyes upon this whimsical piece, I thought immediately that it was nothing less than a charm bracelet for the head.

Lonnie is a brilliant artist and creative HERE and HERE.  Equally talented, Terry is a huge fan of estate sales.  Along with another friend, we had a booth in an antique market years ago.  I’m grateful to have friends who know how much I would enjoy this handmade adornment for the head.

Each “charm” has been stitched unto its base of felt with playful thoughtfulness.
