Hat Attack #74
September’s Hat Attack features a hat that I’ve owned since the 1980’s during the hat shop days. I’m celebrating the many pieces of headwear that has been with me for decades. I never tire of this beauty which is made from straw cloth and is adorned with a rhinestone pin and feathers.
This blue chapeau was created by milliner Joan Carney, who at times worked out of our shop when visiting Denver from Boston. I’ve tried to track her down over the past few years. but have been unsuccessful.
I loved her work and this is an example of a hat that I couldn’t let fly out into the world with someone other than me. There are actually several hats confiscated from the hat shop which reside in the hat room to this day! Is that a surprise to you?
To accessorize this hat, I’m wearing my vintage duster and vintage Asian clutch – estate sales, vintage embroidered shoes – gifted, cuffed jeans – retail sale several years ago, and gifted earrings – Toolally Jewels.
