In Search of Spring

Published on April 28, 2014

There are just a few daffodils blooming in Milwaukee.  I’m getting impatient waiting for Spring. Here’s a pillbox that brings bright flowers, sunshine, and warmth to mind…along with a few butterflies!IMG_0649

It’s Spring!

Published on April 23, 2014

Eve's GardenThis hat is an expression of my relief that Spring is finally here.  Yes, that’s a bird and nest of eggs you see along with waves of vintage French  ribbon winding its way through flowers and leaves, all on a “nest” base of turquoise and toast colored straw fabric.  Celebrate early sun rises, longer evening light, exploding buds, and new life – Wear a new hat!

Charming Hats

Published on November 3, 2013

“What calls for the most care in a woman’s costume is unquestionably, the footgear and gloves; and after that, the hat, the sole duty of which is to be charming.”

Marguerite de Ponty, La Derniere Mode, 1874

Impressionism and Fashion

Published on September 6, 2013

I enjoyed the Impressionism & Fashion exhibit at The Met so much this May that I went to Chicago yesterday to see the exhibit again while it’s at The Art Institute. It’s wonderful, and I hope those of you who haven’t yet seen it will try to catch it before it leaves at the end of Sept. This quote caught my eye: What calls for the most care in a woman’s costume is, unquestionably, the footgear and gloves; and after that, the hat, the sole duty of which is to be charming.

Free Form Sinamay

Published on April 6, 2013

Free form is harder than it looks!  I agonized over this free form sinamay hat for several hours yesterday afternoon, trying to get an easy look.  I returned to the studio this morning and looked at it again out of the corner of my eye to get a first  impression.  Better than I remembered!  A customer arrived, tried it on, and  she took it home with her.  It’ll have many adventures after being in the studio for 12 hours.

CBS News Visits Studio

Published on April 2, 2013

It was an exciting afternoon when CBS Local News reporter Michele McCormak visited Lisa Hatch Millinery on the Friday before Easter, 3/29/13.  She made the interview easy by asking a few questions about how to wear a hat – one of my favorite topics.  Michele looked great in the hats she tried on before she and her cameraman raced back to their own studio in time for the 5 o’clock news.  I hope you’ll click on the link and watch her report.

New Location!!!!

Published on October 9, 2012

I’ve moved!  Lisa Hatch Millinery shifted north just 1 block to 759 N. Milwaukee St., #311.  There are 2 little pretty brick fireplaces, huge windows and lots of room.  Even with all this space, those of you who have “played” with feathers, ribbons, flowers and veils know that chaos happens.  I hope you’ll come visit soon.
