Happy Holidays from Hat Attack!  Hope that your Thanksgiving was fabulous and that you are enjoying the season, however you celebrate or not.


This vintage felt hat covered in feathers was my choice of the day as I hosted Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends.   I have so much to be grateful for and as you can see in the background, my organization has become quite detailed.  The shoes are in transparent boxes and I have taken a photo of each lovely pair.  The description is also included alongside the photo.

Perhaps I’ve become carried away with my recovery from chaos,  but I don’t want to waste moments searching for accessories when time is of the essence. I don’t see myself deciding to stop collecting at this point.  I prefer to accept it and I’m giving myself the gift of self-love for the holidays.  Care to join me?  Meet you at Melanie’s Bag and Beret HERE at the manhole  cover, for a drink and a few laughs. I’m sure it will be festive.

It’s all about the hat, and the close-up is the only way to display its details and the artistry that it took to create a piece of art that puts The SC in a festive mood.  I’m fascinated with my aging process and the changes that occur over time.  Why not be transparent.  I’ve known you long enough!

Kisses to all and may your December be filled with all that you desire and wishing you the best for every moment.

Speaking of festive, I wouldn’t miss the party at Patti’s Visible Monday HERE at Not Dead Yet Style.  This fortnightly gathering is always a celebratory event.

Please display your hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you adore and give The SC a DECEMBER HAT ATTACK and kindly link to Style Crone somewhere in you post.  I’m excited to see the beautiful creations that you share throughout the next week. Participation will be open through December 7th.

  1. A georgeos and amazing hat – I like feathers …
    Have a nice Advent and Christmas time, with greetings from the far and cold Gemany

  2. I adore this hat of yours. So, so pretty. What a work of art. I suddenly realised today it was Hat Attack day (smart to do it on the first of the month. I can remember that).
    So I quickly created a post, nicked a photo of you with the great hat and hope to do you proud.

  3. Your feathered hat is so beautiful, SC! I love that you are giving yourself the gift of self-love for the holidays, or any day. I bought a lovely lace “hat” from Bella and I will try to get it posted in time for the Hat Attack. Best to you as ever. xo

  4. Wow what an INCREDIBLE hat dear Judith, worn with such humour and panache! Happy happy holidays to you.
    I’m hoping to link up to Hat Attack with a warm trapper hat for my post The Browning Version, but can’t see where to do so with this post, am I being dense?

  5. Festive!! This hat is indeed a work of art! I thought it might be silk, but felt! I’m guessing it is hand painted, and beautifully. The addition of the froth of feathers at the brim is gorgeous, as are you!!! Thanks for hosting hat attack!

  6. Such fine feathers, perfect for such a joyous celebratory post! I look forward to Hat Attack with great anticipation every month, thank you so much for launching this gathering. Warmest holiday greetings to you as well, dear Judith!

  7. At last I can join you with something on my head, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
    I must try every week. I do like it.
    You are beyond fabuloussssssssssssssssssssss.

  8. The hat is breathtaking! Of course, it wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t underscored with your vibrant face and ease in front of the camera. 😀 I hope to get my SC-inspired outfit in soon.

  9. I love your hat so much! I don’t think I have ever seen a hat like that; very unique. Happy Thanksgiving and beyond…..xoxo

  10. What a fantastic hat, Judith…only eclipsed by the lovely and gracious face beneath it. Happy weekend-after-Thanksgiving…

  11. To create order after the chaos makes so much sense. If you can get a healthy dose of pleasure from putting order into your clothing and accessory collection, you’re bound to reap emotional benefits. Big hugs to you my dear, I have the deepest respect for you. The thrill of a feathered hat has me quite in a flap too!!! xoxoxoxoxo

  12. So glad the turkey feathers were not wasted!

    That is an amazing hat, and I’m going to have a hard time coming up with superlatives every month as you constantly outdo yourself! Another fabulous look from a fabulous lady! I would wish I had been at your Thanksgiving table if I hadn’t had such a good time myself.

  13. Feathers are magical and your hat is no exception. It’s an extraordinary piece and I can see how it might require a special mention. A new Hat Attack seems appropriate, so I’m glad to see you sporting your feathers for such an occasion.

    Sending so much love!!! XXXOOO

  14. All those different coloured feathers!

    I love all the hats everyone is wearing. They are all so different and really do add the icing on the cake in the outfit.


  15. What a fun hat to wear while hosting a party. All the different feathers make amazing textures and colors. Hope you had a enjoyable Thanksgiving!

  16. All your headwear is beautiful, Judith, but this hat is particularly stunning. What gorgeous feathers, you are a bird of paradise! I love the close up photos – of the gorgeous hat, and gorgeous you!
    Good to know you enjoyed Thanksgiving, and I am so impressed with your organisational skills! xxxx

  17. Hello beautiful woman. You and your hats are clearly (see, the transparent pun) delights to behold. I too, feel the pleasure of gratitude- good to see we’re in good company! xo!

  18. Your organization and acceptance of the fact that collecting makes you happy are inspiring. You look lovely in the close-up photos; the hat frames your face beautifully.

  19. Another amazing hat Judith and so many great hat wearing participants. I should be able to join you next time when I’m in Holland and have more opportunity to wear hats with the function to keep me warm!

  20. Hi Judith!

    What a spectacular hat you are wearing!
    I will join tomorrow – I have found this cute plaid beret yesterday at goodwill –



  21. A treat to make my week! Darling Judith, the hat is a joy on you … perfect for Thanksgiving or any holiday. So light! So bright! So you! I think immediately of hummingbirds and that works with your joy and delicacy.
    So glad you had a great Thanksgiving … the party at your house must be divine!

    The Hat Attack is one of the best things to happen in a long time. The most charming event going. Genius, Judith … pure glory! I have to find something to put on my head for January!

  22. You are simply radiant and beautiful in this wonderful hat. The participants in the Hat Attack are fabulous. What a wonderful way to initiate the holiday season!

  23. Oh Judith, I had such a good time with everyone at the manhole, especially with your gang, that I drunkenly fell down it! I surfed my way to Hong Kong Harbor where I was picked up the most charming captain of a garbage scow. Now I’m back and quite content knowing that my clothes will be good as new in a few days…

    Your hat is brilliant! Your organization skills are breathtaking. The details on the hat, on the face, on all, are divine. I keep trying and trying to find the PERFECT hat, does such a thing exist? I love the joie de vivre that you radiate in these photos!

  24. Oh Judith, much to my regret I’m late to the party this month but I simply had to compliment you on that breathtaking hat! I just can’t get over how divine it is and how gloriously it frames your face!
    I will do better next month, I promise! I already have a hat picked out to wear 😉
