Hat Attack!


Hats of all sizes and decades add a big impact to whatever you're wearing, and where ever you choose to wear it. You could probably wear the same dress all week, but if you've got on a a different hat, you'll be wearing a whole new outfit. Hats add "oomph," character and appeal. 

Today, along with Judith, the beloved Style Crone, we celebrate the hat.
 


I Wear Many Hats. 

This is my first, and likely the only post for the month of August. I'll be taking some time off here, because at the moment, I'm wearing quite a number of proverbial hats.

Some hats I'm wearing: 
  • Vintage Seller. Not only will I be working hard to keep my Etsy shop full of fresh picked finds, I am currently involved with an excited "brick and mortar" venture! One of my favorite shops in Seattle is moving to a bigger and better location and I am honored to be part the new space. Along with a small, select handful of other vintage sellers, I'll be setting up a micro-boutique inside the Beats + Bohos! Once we get set up and open for business, expect to see a big announcement about it on my Facebook page.
  • Social Media/Marketing Maven. I've had the pleasure of working with Karina Dresses, first as a brand ambassador, then as their newsletter writer and graphic artist. Now, I'm proud to announce that I'll be taking on more responsibilities with this amazing little dress company. Now the role of editor for their blog, the Karina Chronicles, can be added to my resume.
  • Online Publisher. I've been a fashion blogger/online publisher for 5 years now, but in the upcoming months, I'll be focusing my energies on something I'm very passionate about: my labor-of-love for the +40 community called Into the Violet. Expect a vibrant and pertinent website showcasing our +40 Blog Roll. Into the Violet is just getting started, but expect great (and colorful) things!
As you can see, I'm wearing many hats, and all of them feel marvelous.  I feel so lucky (and plucky) to be trying my hand at wearing so many!

Dear Bella, Your new projects sound very exciting and I know that you will wear all of your hats with passion, using your many talents and skills. You look deliciously mysterious today and I love how you have represented my badge to perfection in the second photo. Very clever!!! And I always adore a veil.

Thank you for linking up with Hat Attack and for your years of support.

I'm so excited that all these great things are happening for you! I remember when you switched to full time blogging/vintage selling. It must have been scary, but all that work has paid off. Yay!

Beautiful Bella, you are a dynamo of positive energy! I feel like I have dropped off the face of the earth in that I suddenly moved to an apartment and am trying to unearth pictures for the article I was working on, feeling like we needed to communicate. It does my heart good to know you are happily engaged in so many wonderful things! Sigh. Do take care! Can't wait to see all you are working on!

XOXO
Lynn

Wow Bella - how fabulously beautiful and mysterious! Amazing in all your hats - hope your August is going splendidly.

I'm still snort-giggling over your "spleen-did" comment too - thanks for that!!! - and I look forward with much excitement to the news of your return. xoxo

Debbie Burns said...

I'm excited for you! There's nothing like having a physical space for your store. So much fun to dress it up! I'm looking forward to Into The Violet. I've already checked out the page. I've not posting for a bit myself. Vacation with the kids, closing the store and getting ready for back to college is taking all my time these days. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

You are a multi-talented, multi-hat wearing queen of hats (both literal and metaphoric). Hope you are enjoying a little breathing space through August. Looking forward to following your new adventures with Into The Violet - which is already looking brilliant.

You look lovely in hats. I seem to only be good in a beanie. ((sigh))
Enjoy your August!

Mrs. D said...
