May’s Hat Attack is a headpiece created by Heather Stoten of The Hat Workshop HERE in Boulder, Colorado.  I’ve blogged about Heather’s fine millinery couture before on Style Crone, and a recent trip to her studio revealed this beautiful silk organza ruffle hat which immediately landed on my head.


I’ve also written about how I don’t have to possess every stunning piece of headwear that I meet in my travels!


Wearing it briefly and documenting the experience with a photo can be enough.  And featuring its beauty on Hat Attack is frosting, which I can taste again.  And again. By pulling up these photos and inhaling its pink splendor whenever I choose.  It’s like having a virtual hat room which I can curate without ownership.  This is a practice I would like to develop with more depth.

  1. you’re a beautiful woman, and the hat is very beautiful. on my blog I have a picture. hat with the end of the 19 multiple-petals of cherry blossoms.

  2. A Mayday confection. What a beautiful hat. As someone else said, the color suits you but then you can carry off so much effortlessly.

  3. Fantastically beautiful piece! You look gorgeous, Judith. Timeless! I think collections can be both real and virtual, why not? 🙂

  4. Sometimes just being able to wear a beautiful thing for a few minutes is enough, like when I was able to wear that spectacular coat at the Vintage Show last October, and if you can document the moment to relive later, even better.

    Of course you look amazing with a rose on your head – positively blooming 🙂

  5. Your black ensemble showcases this fuschia hat off beautifully. You’re right Judith, you don’t have to own it to appreciate it. This wonderful platform that you have here is the perfect way to share these amazing confections with others. And it’s limitless which has to be a bonus. Have a lovely week x

  6. What a wonderful hat – it looks like my Ranunculus, currently blooming madly in my window boxes. xxx

  7. You are so amazing! That hat is outstanding (on you!!). Your posts here are just beautiful eye candy for me. …a stunning testament to living with GREAT PANACHE.

  8. LOVELY………….I really ENJOYED your essay in ARi’s NEW BOOK as well.You are a stunning woman with a HEAD for HATS!!!!!!!

  9. Love the floral wonder of your beautiful hat, Judith! Both the color and form are superb – kudos to Heather Stoten, its creator.

    And of course, you look wonderful wearing it. I’d imagine that your ‘new hair color’ has opened up opportunities to wear fun ‘new’ hues! Thank you, as always!

  10. Hi,
    Love, love, love your hats. I posted my photo from a session with my BF photog. I love making my own hats/redesigning them to suit my mood.

  11. What a fun hat. It looks like a flower. And of course it suits you. Which hat doesn’t? I have found out where all the emails go announcing a new Style Crone blog post… in my spam box…
