Go Pink or Go Home


Make heads turn wearing this hat. You may need to tilt sideways to get into the doorway! This oversized, and we mean huge, pink hat has a wired brim and an oversized HUGE soft pink silk flower. The hot pink offshoots complete the look. Perfect for the Kentucky Oaks where patrons wear pink to honor  the fillies and raise awareness for breast cancer.  You can wear the flower to the side, front or back. The hat is heavier  and wider than most, so we recommend securing it with bobby pins in case of a heavy gust of wind. 


This hat may require additional shipping if traveling far from Kentucky.


PLEASE NOTE: The US Post Office raised their rates DRAMATICALLY and they calculate costs by measuring the size of the box and the distance it is traveling from Kentucky. Some of our hats and fascinators require a larger box and are more expensive to ship. We will contact you if necessary, for additional postage/shipping. (USPS is less costly than UPS and Fed Ex.) Feel free to text us at (502)553-4342 and let us know what state you are in, so we can let you know if there is an issue. If you are traveling into Louisville, Kentucky for the Kentucky Derby - we offer free pick up at our studio, and may be able to arrange delivery at your hotel so you don’t have to carry onto the plane!
