The Hat Attack for June is a beautiful confection by Milliner Anna Mikhailova  of Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I had the pleasure of meeting Anna over a year ago when she was visiting Denver.  We met for dinner and she generously gifted me with this amazing headpiece.

I discovered Anna on Instagram before I met her in person.  One of the major benefits of blogging and having a presence on Instagram is the people that I meet because of similar interests and passions.

Today I’m wearing this treasured creation with a thrifted black dress and gifted jewelry. As my friend, the artist and talented hat maker Debra Rapoport always says, “Thrifted and gifted is the best way to dress!”

I love this structured turquoise straw chapeau with veil and black headband, and the headpiece is the perfect accessory to accentuate the honeysuckle vine that’s thriving in my back garden. It’s taken its time this year, but spring has finally arrived.

  1. Anna Mikhailova’s work looks sensational on you. Honeysuckle and hats are winners. . Anna’s fresh fruited hat looked good enough to eat! Thanks for sharing. Judy

  2. Love your choice of Aqua to contrast with the dress and make the hat come alive. Hats are my passion.

  3. That colour is wonderful on you and brings out the blue of your eyes. A very lovely hat beautifully contrasted to the blue of your dress – yes, stunning 🙂
