ART IN HATS 2014 EVENT Featuring alpha.tribe::: Orientalist’s Delight


The Art in Hats 2014 Event is here!!!! OMG…it’s Christmas time for hat lovers! Everywhere you turn there are amazing, unique, avant-garde, whimsical, whatever style you can think of hats, here!!! This event, that is the first of it’s kind, to marry the adornment of hats and the love of art together into one fantastic, not to be missed, event. The inspiring hats, are also featured in amazing wall art, that can also be purchased! You must go and see these and buy buy buy! Don’t be like I was last year, and have buyer’s remorse! The Art in Hats 2014 Event will run until July 31st, so go grab these exclusive creations, while you can.

As I run amok, like a kid turned loose in a candy store, among these stunning and striking creations, it’s so hard to settle on just one to blog! The latest design to give me a hatgasm, is alpha.tribe::: Orientalist’s Delight. I had to fan my own self, as this jaw dropping, extraordinary, hat is TO DIE FOR and a must have for those of you, who are bold and want to be looked at!!!



This starling, incredible design consists of 2 parts. The varied paisley, floral and patchwork textures are blended beautifully into this huge wearable piece of glorious art for your head! There is a caravan of elephants that circles around the hat and that of a small open pavilion tent, that is topped with a black star. The elephants and the fabric lined pavilion tent, are on a multi-colored large base, that has a scalloped fabric draping festooned by black flowers, with hanging triangles accents. I tried this hat on, with so many items from my inventory, that it just went so perfectly with everything! I settled on this look, that I had combined several designs to make, and was WOWED!!! I had to run back to the Event, as I wanted the “about the hat” notecard. While there, I had received a couple of compliments on this fantastic hat. I also ran some errands, to Collabor88 and to the arcade. There were so many cross hairs on me, and people complimenting this hat, that I was so glad I hadn’t change, and of course, I told them about the event where it could be purchased! I will be using this hat, in my modeling career, as it is attention grabbing and avant-garde chic! Plus, everyone who knows me, knows I love hats!

Thank you, Alpha Auer, for this OH MY GAWD HAT!!! I REALLY LOVE THIS HAT and so will everyone else, who sees it! This hat is unisex, so everyone can  BUY IT!!!!
