Mad Hatter (and Giveaway)

 I don’t wear hats very often simply because I have a huge head and have a really hard time finding great hats that fit!  When Hat Attack wanted to run a giveaway, I was a little nervous for that very reason, but they assured me that they had hats for all sized heads.

I chose three of my favorite hats (the classic velour fedora, knit earmuffs with rabbit fur, and the stretch rabbit fur slouchy hat.)   I have styled all three of them here for you to see (love them all, so much!) but the more exciting news is that  one lucky S&S reader will win all three hats!  Simply like Stripes & Sequins and Hat Attack on Facebook and leave a comment below stating that you did so!  Good Luck!

Giveaway fine print:  Ends Monday 11/12/12 at 12:00am EST.  If you do not have a Facebook account, you may still enter by leaving a comment below.

    I liked them both! Also glad to hear that Hat Attack has hats of all sizes. I usually have to buy men’s hats – women’s hats don’t fit my big head!

    cute photos – but looks like you went a little overboard with the photoshop, these photos don’t even look like you! eek!

    • Grace says 11.5.12

      Hi Jess, thanks for “keeping it real.” I am still learning photoshop… but your comment alarmed me, so I switched back to the non-retouched photos. I also had more makeup on than usual… so that could have helped.

    Oh, I love hats! Especially beautifully made ones, its a lost art. There is something very alluring about wearing a hat – the intrigue level is kicked up a notch with any outfit.

    Hi Grace – went to their website and they don’t list sizes for any of their hats, as far as I can see. So where did you find large sizes? Thanks.
