If you know me, you know I love to wear hats. I can’t go more than a few days without wearing a hat. Often it’s because I don’t have time to do my hair and other times it’s simply because I want to look fancy without the effort. I found a new hat website (new to me) and it is now officially my favorite hat source.
This site is perfect for your Derby shopping needs. They have over-the-top, gorgeous hats. The prices are some of the best I have seen too. To pay under $100 for a true Sinamay Derby hat is a deal! The store is Berkeley Hat: http://www.berkeleyhat.com It is the website for an actual brick and mortar store located in Berkeley, CA.
I placed an order last week and on Tuesday my box of three fancy Derby style hats arrived. No, I don’t plan to go to the Kentucky Derby or any horse races for that matter. I wear my over-the-top, fancy, “Derby” hats to church, charity events, parties, and yesterday to a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) gathering. After my box of new hats arrived I couldn’t resist wearing one right away. I didn’t care where I was going or what I had planned, I was going to wear one of those hats the next day.
Here is a screen shot of just a couple of their reasonably priced Derby hats (keep in mind they have lots more on the site):
They also have designer hats if you want to have the most fabulous hat of all at the Derby (this is a just a few, they have lots more on their site):
