Here is a picture of me wearing a hat I created at Susie Love‘s Surrealist Hat Party. It was named the Lipstick Hat and was made of a magazine advertisement and some seafoam tulle. I had intended originally to make a subtle fascinator out of feathers, but somehow the exact opposite happened. I never wear lipstick, so another party-goer kindly lent me hers to finish the look. How unexpected.
We all sat around Susie’s kitchen table and cut, glued, sewed, and created all sorts of hats. What a wonderful idea for a party. See all the pictures here – the hats are all adorable, whimsical, fun. In particular, I must give a shout out to the very meta Hat Hat worn by Joel Garten.
After our hats were finished, we went gallery hopping and created quite the scene.
