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.

No purchase necessary; void where prohibited.  While I do not announce the winner on my blog, it will be available by Saturday  11/17/12 by request.  By entering into this sweepstakes, the entrant acknowledges that they are eligible for this sweepstakes according to all laws set forth by their state of residency.  Sorry, US residents only.

    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!

      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.

    No facebook… :( but I’m happy I can still enter the sweepstakes!! Love the earmuffs cause I am on the same boat as you in feeling that no hats fit my head :x. Hope to win~

    I liked both! You look adorable–I’ve never been a hat person (something about my face shape is weird, I’m convinced) but I love the fur version. Perfect for the freezing NYC winter!

  37. Jayme November 6, 2012 at 9:56 am #

    I liked both on Facebook and Grace, oh my, you should absolutely wear hats! You totally rocked that fedora and you look stunning! PS, I have another curly hair product for you to try by Lush –,en_US,pd.html?start=5&cgid=hair-treatments – this stuff is awesome and smells great! I instantly thought of you when I first tried it last week!

  38. Samantha Peterson November 6, 2012 at 10:05 am #

      Hi Deirdre, It’s actually Tommy Hilfiger. I couldn’t find one I liked so I scoured ebay and snagged this one. It’s worth setting up a saved search! x

    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.

    thanks for the great giveaway!

    liked them both !

    & let me just saying, im loving the photo of you on the top right of the site .. you look gorgeous in your stripes & sequins !

  62. Saba March 30, 2014 at 11:03 am #

    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.
