Mistress Maddie’s Closet / El Armario de la Doña Maddie

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

When I visited the Automobile and Fashion Museum, I had no idea I would be getting my own personal look inside the closet of the Mistress Borghese (aka Mistress Maddie). Click here if you haven’t met the Mistress — fellow blogger, former and now sometime drag queen, and gifted designer. Of course, her closet is huge — just like his… personality.


Cuando visité el Museo del Automóvil y la Moda, no tenía idea de que tendría mi propio look personal dentro del armario de la Doña Borghese. Haz clic aquí si no conoces a Mistress: colega bloguera, antigua y ahora alguna vez drag queen, y talentosa diseñadora. Por supuesto, su armario es enorme — al igual que su… personalidad.

• The Mistress has been seen wearing this without the dark gown underneath.
• Se ha visto a La Ama usando esto sin el vestido oscuro debajo.

  1. I love the hats, we should wear more hats, silly hats, frilly hats, impractical hats.

    1. David:
      I love hats. But I don’t have a hat head. Only very specific styles and shapes look good on me. SG has a hat head.

    1. mcpersonalspace54:
      I thought it was an odd combination until I saw it. Even custom car interiors by the same designer as the gown featured next to the car.

    1. sillygirl:
      I plan to drag SG back there with me. I didn’t get enough time.

  2. You’d look fabulous in the one with the feathers, fruit, and toucan… and it would prevent your head from sunburn.

    1. Wicked Hamster:
      I do need one to prevent my head from sunburn. But I don’t think the fruit one would suit me. (My face is too narrow.) I love that last one though… And the hands, and the chariot… oh, and those broad-brimmed.

    1. Wicked Hamster:
      And that was possibly less than half the collection. I don’t know how many exotic birds died for some of the other hats.

      1. Jon:
        I’m envious. Next year, Torremolinos again. It’s not London, but it will have to do.

      2. I think we’d enjoy Torremolinos Pride, too! – we only just missed it this year, it being such an early event (end May/early June).

        Of course, the scale might be somewhat different. Jx

  3. Oooh, Maddie’s going to get all orgasmic! She loves a say something hat, and boy are these talking! This is a faux Maddie closet, though. I mean really, no marabou boas is a dead giveaway!

  4. I love that hat with the super-wide brim! I could totally see myself wearing that, lounging on a Spanish beach. (My dermatologist would approve, even if no one else would.) Are those other hats supposed to have hands coming out the top? That’s very weird.

    1. Steve:
      Oh, yes, the hands are supposed to be there. So, the hands are weird but the chariot isn’t? Thanks to no hair for protection I’ve finally given in to wearing a hat. That brim would work for me, too.

  5. What a fantastic collection! I expected Mistress Maddie’s closet to have more wigs, spectacular jewelry and empty gin bottles though…

      1. Mistress Borghese:
        We all imagine ourselves in your closet. However, my response was that you have separate closets for wigs and jewelry, and house boys for empy gin bottles.

    1. Tundra Bunny:
      Oh, Mistress Maddie has separate closets for wigs and jewelry. And the house boys take care of the empty gin bottles.

  6. The BFJ and I have random “Say Something Hat Days” and can never resist trying on hats and taking pics. We have ten years of such pics. Perhaps I should do a post of them some day.

    1. Sassybear:
      Ooh, I would love to see a post of your hat pics. And I would love to join you for a Say Something Hat Day.

  7. OH……….I LOVE! I feel like a kid in a candy store! And your correct, I loved it all and you know I adore hats and have some huge wide brims….but I’m so in the mood to wear that third one down with the huge plumes………oHHHHHHH YES. I like to keep it casual. And loving all the hats. I really like and might need to swipe that “Carmen Miranda” looking hat with the feathers and plumes. FAAAAABULOUS!!!! I would have really enjoyed seeing this with you, although we may have been asked to leave, what with me trying to try things on and pilfer things out. Yes, I have seen Pose, and Elektra ‘s highjack of the costume wing of a museum. THANK YOU for the eye candy my friend!!!!

    1. Mistress Borghese:
      There were so many more hats at the museum. I couldn’t include them all, but I might have to share a few more at another time. Many that I don’t have photos of were nothing but plumes. Spectactular (poor birds).

Please share your thoughts...
