Check out these hats from Italian hat designer Federica Moretti ! I love love love them! I think the snail hat is pretty rad. I would wear that to a French restaurant and say, “don’t eat me”- ahahahahahaha! I digress. Anyway, I can see a grown-up  Madeline wearing the hat in the first photo. Hats are one of my favorite accessories, but unfortunately when I wear one around my parts, I get the stared at like I’m wearing a damn ballgown to an Arby’s opening in Montana. Here is one hat  for the boys:

It’s like the love child of a hoodie, gladiator chest plates and a wicker chair from Boca Raton.

Check these cool hats by Zara Carpenter and Dadaya!

Let’s start with the wounded Bambi- As you may know, I love gnomes and deer. So this would be fantastic addition to my wardrobe. Although, the arrows in the deer’s butt is cruel, I still like it because it’s so macabre. It costs about $450, so I better start saving those pennies!

The mini-beret is adorable! Perfect for my gnome in my garden!

On one of my recent trips to NYC, I stopped by Henri Bendel (I’ve been going there since I was 13) and saw that they have switched to only accessories, jewelry and handbags. No more clothes and shoes. It’s so sparkley now! My cats would have a ball. Hell, I had a ball! Anyway, I stumbled upon these really cool hats by French hat designer, Selima. Each one is handmade at her studio/boutique on Bond Street in NYC and also is available at Henri Bendel. Selima provided hats for Malandrino’s Spring 2010 Collection and many socialites. Check out her cool site for custom made hats, blog and contact.

Check out these awesome hats from Tour de Force ! As you may know, I love love love hats. It’s just such a shame that when you wear a hat these days, people assume you’re a batty and confused woman that thinks she’s in an Audrey Hepburn movie. At least, that’s what I gather. Anyway, my personal faves are the the birdcage (of course!) and the red curly curls. Why, you ask? Because the red curls look like a cartoon and I strive to look cartoon-y as possible. And the birdcage, well, I’d wear that with a yellow feather sticking out of my mouth! What can I say….after living with three cats for so many years, you start acting like one.

Stephen Jones (above) , Piers Atkinson (below)


If you want a hat that really makes a statement, call on these two magnificent milliners, Stephen Jones and  Piers Atkinson. Each has their own unique sense of style- Jones with an elegant, vintage flair with a touch of quirk and  Atkinson with an outlandish, offbeat style that can be eccentric. Both are breathtaking, in my opinion, and deserve much success for their visionary take on covering a precarious, small space- the head. Having said that,  does this give me a license to put a nude Barbie on my head for the next soiree I attend? I think it does! Yessssss!

Alyce Benevides and Jaqueline Milles of Knit-Head made me this hat a few years ago. They let me choose the colors,  which was cool because I love bright, colorful things. And of course, the Union Jack makes it one of my most favorite hats in my hat collection. (Yes, I have a department store hat rack in my closet- what?) Every time I wear it,  I get massive compliments from cool people and bewildered stares from old people (probably wondering how the fupe  to knit that for their grandkid).

The story goes that Knit-Head made Martin Gore of Depeche Mode a mohawk hat and quickly became the hat Gore would wear on the ‘Touring the Angel’ Tour. Not bad for a couple of punk rock knitters! Order your own color combo at Knit-Head.

PS: That is Mr.Marmar in my arms- isn’t he Haaaaaandsome! And yes, I cover my furniture – no , I’m not 80.

British Milliner, Stephen Jones , designed this fugly hat that was in John Galliano’s Spring 2009 collection. I’m confused as to what this is exactly. So, I see the flower… is that chicken wire??… and is that Waldo’s scarf( I know he doesn’t wear a scarf- but it looks like he would wear this one)? 

I dunno, but I usually love clever hats, but this one is not cool. Speaking of chicken wire, I’m glad Prop 2 in California passed- the one for banning animal cruelty on farms. Having said that, I’m craving El Pollo Loco. For everyone who doesn’t know what I’m talking  , click here. I used to make fun of the place when I first moved to California, then I I was forced to eat there one day – and I liked it! 

Back to hats, I like hats with feathers on it the most.
