Fast forward to 3 days later and I'm on Etsy again, dreaming, when I come across a little shop that makes these BEAUTIFUL mini top hats. I was intrigued, so I plunged in a little deeper and found that the seller of these fabulous hats does custom work! As luck would have it, my dress for the wedding was only available in full length and the dresses needed to be knee length, so I had a bunch of extra fabric. I quickly typed out a message, asking about pricing, sizes, etc. Jenn answered my questions about the hat and was very excited to fashion me a hat. I chose the adult size small. I'm sure that different hats cost different amounts, as I requested something with not a lot going on (some of her fabulous hats have adorable flowers and big feather details. This wedding is a small town wedding....a girl wearing a top hat is going to be scandalous enough on its own) so the cost was $38.50. And let me tell you...worth.every.penny!
I received the hat just the other day (I don't need this hat until august, as my BFF is such a big deal shes having a Part A and Part B to her wedding, so I advised Jenn that there was no rush). It was simply beautiful. Exactly what I'd pictured and then some. My dress is a royal blue, so the hat was done in the royal blue with black trim, a black ribbon around the tall part of the hat, a small sparkly black brooch, and a black feather. You can tell by looking at it that the craftsmanship that went into this hat was very in depth and that careful attention was paid. I am THRILLED with this hat, I cannot wait until August now. I highly recommend this etsy shop, she does wonderful work that will add a little pizazz to your next fancy occasion. Ladies...wedding season is coming! want to be the 2nd best dressed lady there?? Talk to Jenn and you will NOT be disappointed!!
