Had high hopes for Selima's newest Venture

As a huge fan of Selima's eye glasses(I own three pairs!) I went in to shop for a hat with much excitement. Unfortunately these hats didn't live up to my expectations. They look as if someone bought a hat on the street for $30 and hot glued garage sale jewelry and craft feathers to them. I am confused why someone with Selima's eye and fashion savvy would utilize such garish color combinations as well as actually use glue on a $250-$300 hat. I still love the idea of Selima doing hats and hope that next season they might be a bit more original with more of her unexpected flair and better quality.

Never knew I was a hat designer!

The Hats by Selima Atelier is a truly unique experience. I was able to create my own vision along with their designers, and together we found the perfect shape hat for my face and head. I customized the color, trim and even picked through a huge drawer of trinkets and found a gorgeous art deco brooch to add to the hat band. Such a fun experience, and now I'll feel confident wearing a hat because it's truly me. Much improved from the shabby vintage hat I found upstate! Highly recommend this hidden basement's inside BOND 07 by Selima, beyond the punk rock Mudhoney salon and down the stairs. Such nice, creative energy! Bravo, Selima!
