Hat Attack #77 – The Vintage Feather Hat by Jack McConnell
The December Hat Attack is a vintage Jack McConnell feather confection which I recently discovered at a vintage shop. The intricate feather and rhinestone designs on the surface of the green fur felt background of the chapeau are exquisite. Jack McConnell hats are highly collectible and I was thrilled to find this beauty in excellent condition. I plan to wear it for the holidays and beyond.
I happened to have the perfect vintage mustard colored gloves, which played nicely with the mustard colored feathers on the hat. My vintage glove collection serves me well! There are advantages to having been enamored by estate sales since the 1970s.
I have decided to continue with Hat Attack as a monthly feature, but without the link-up party. I haven’t been giving the link-up the attention it deserves. I may reinstate it in the future, but for now I’m letting it go. I have been blogging for almost a decade, and priorities ebb and flow. My passion for headwear remains intact, and I will continue to wear my collection with abandon.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in Hat Attack over the past 77 months. I appreciate your enthusiasm for my favorite accessory, and I hope that you will continue to follow along with the monthly series that will fondly focus on headwear. Have a wonderful winter holiday season, and if you wear hats, now is the time to express yourself fully and without reservation! Nothing could be more festive!
