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.

Now I’m asking you to charm me with your headwear!

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.

Please display your hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you adore, give The SC a SEPTEMBER 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 Sunday, September 7th.

  1. That hat is absolutely insane and totally fabulous! The photos are wonderful today, I love seeing your playful side. Ready to join in as soon as the link’s up and running! xxxx

  2. So adorable. Now what about a matching handbag???? I am so stuck on handbags today, as I am taking my newest treasure, a pink felt with metal cage by Jollee Originals out for a party. Looking foward to what hats will come along here.

  3. What a wonderfully quirky and creative hat! Look, there’s a J for Judith, so you know it’s yours! Great photos, you look fabulous. xxx

  4. I ADORE THAT HAT AND THE WONDERFUL WOMAN WEARING IT. What an extra boon that sweet and (can’t resist!) charming topper is the thoughtful gift of friends. Extra magic! Your pictures lately have such a joyful, spontaneous spirit to them, I can’t help but admire your beauty all the more.

  5. This hat is inspiring! One could ‘charm’ any felt beret with a collection of pins! (My crazy cat lady cats…?) But then there’s the possibility of creating ceramic doodads on a theme: leaves, birds, astrological symbols. And pasta! One could decorate a beret with macaroni! * Thanks for my morning giggle, Judith.

  6. Best hat in the worldddddddddddddddd.
    I am joining withou, as ever, lol

  8. Since everyone else is saying it … Charming! You are, you know. I don’t know another woman who could carry that hat off like you do, and that’s no exaggeration! Happy Hat Attack! We shall see if I can carry one off this fall like I’d like to … I keep trying, but when the top of my head is hidden by the hat, all I can see is my jowls! There has to be a solution. I persevere!

  9. Hey! I made it just in time- didn’t have a blog post but took this snap for instagram at a friend’s SF shop. LOVED this vintage early 20th century straw boater and ya know- it was perfect for the #hatattack. Love youse!

  10. Phew, I snuck in just in time with a flower – fashionable late, but so happy to be here with you! xxx

  11. Seriously, this little hat is the most ‘charming’ hat piece I’ve seen. It’s whimsical personality just makes me smile and what an excellent conversation piece.

  12. You are a gift!!!!!! Thank you for your amazing site and sharing spirit. You rock like crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
