November’s Hat Attack was created by the gorgeous milliner, artist and blogger Carol Markel of Femme et Fleur HERE. I have to admit that this piece of headwear is one of my all time favorites, although how could I possibly create a hierarchy within my hat collection when I have so much love for them all. They facilitate the expression of different aspects of my personality. Perhaps I’m guilty of humanizing my hats.
I adore Carol’s love of color, texture and design and this hat is a statement piece that never fails to inspire me to live life to the fullest. Carol is also a cherished friend, and I always visit her and her artist husband Richard whenever I travel to NYC. Not only is she talented, but she is kind, clever and generous. I have a collection of her art, which also includes manikin heads and statement beads. Who knows what I will discover the next time that I enter her magical trove of treasures!
Without blogging, I wouldn’t have met Carol. I wouldn’t be wearing this piece of wearable art. And I wouldn’t be moving through life with the unadulterated joy that this headpiece brings to me when I lovingly place it on my head. There’s something sacred about the sense of wonder that I feel when I wear this piece of collaged sculpture. Do you ever have this feeling when you wear a beloved piece of headwear?
