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

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.

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

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.

I’m taking my whimsical headwear over to Sacramento’s Share-in-Style at Mis Papelicos HERE.  She never fails to dazzle with her creative ensembles.

Hat Attack #13

August 1st, 2014

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.

IMG_8414

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.
