Hat Testimonials

Erica - Louisville, KY

"I wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful fascinator you made for me for the Oaks.  You nailed it and I got so many compliments.  My absolute favorite part was the addition of my grand-mother's jewelry.  It was such a treat for me and I am so very thankful."

Iris - Chicago, IL

"The Hat was an absolute sensation at the party I went to on Sunday. Everyone was coming up and complimenting it – both people I knew and people I didn’t know. I can safely say that it’s now one of my favorite hats, both the crafting and the color. Thank you so much."

Julie - Arlington Heights, IL

"I purchased your hat at Arlington Million. At 67 years old I have been invisible for a number of years. That hat was like magic. Men stopped and turned to look at me. They opened doors for me. I had at least 20 men and women tell me they loved my hat. We went to a restaurant after the race and the owner came to our table and said "you make my restaurant look good". It was a wonderful day. I got so much attention and had more fun, all because of your hat."

Kris - Seattle, WA
