Some day I hope to own a Philip Treacy hat but until then I turned to etsy to find the perfect hat for my New York trip. I wanted something sequined or beaded, pretty, whimsical, with a little burlesque mixed in. I definitely found it in the work of Janine Basil, who makes amazing hats in her etsy shop!
I don’t see many women wear hats and I myself didn’t own a fancy hat until I found this etsy seller, but this is a sad realization because millinery is truly an art. For my first hat I went for a gorgeous beaded pill box. I already have an outfit in mind! I paid $95 for my hat and while I know that can sound like a lot, I think it’s worth it for pieces that are really special, especially handmade. Janine’s store has hats and fascinators priced around $30 and up. Definitely check her out, I LOVE her shop! Here are some of my favorites and the hat I chose for myself!

Edit: Janine Basil just contacted me about a special offer for my readers! Enter “Fatshionable” in the message box at checkout to get 20% off your purchase! Discount ends May 30th. I guess this is unique to Etsy, but the discount works in the form of a refund after you pay. This is the way the last etsy discount for the blog worked too and everyone I asked said it worked perfectly. All questions about the discount should be directed to her etsy shop. Thank you Janine!
