So I thrifted an AMAZING vintage coat a few months back, and although I already had some fantastic elbow-length gloves to go with it (also thrifted) I knew it was missing something. This amazing coat deserved an equally amazing hat.
So, naturally, I wrote to Audi, Queen of Hats. Initially I thought it would be superawesome to commission a leopard-skin pillbox hat from her, and we agreed to that project. But after mulling it over, Audi said she was worried that I wouldn’t end up wearing something so very dated and impractical, and suggested she use the already-procured leopard-print fabric to make a version of her gorgeous Vanessa asymmetric hat. SUCH a better idea. See?
Husband Mike even got a new chapeau out of the deal! Audi said, “I made the Homburg hat as an experiment with a new block I just got, and when it was done it just looked so very HM …”
It is, hands down, my favorite of HM’s hats. I mean seriously, how handsome is he?
