#WeLove Fedoras and #Fashionista s….#Style Profile


Here’s an interesting question we found perusing the net.  What we thought was a Fedora is actually a Trilby.  Well, guess what we have in stock? Grey, Dk Brown and Ivory Trilby’s at

Reader Question: Trilby vs. Fedora

By Truth in Fashion | Published: June 27, 2011

Dear Truth in Fashion,

I see hats called fedoras, and others called trilbies, but I really don’t see a difference, are they the same thing?


Dear Mindy,

They look a lot alike but actually have subtle differences. What we are seeing right now in fashion being called a fedora is most likely a trilby. A trilby hat has a thinner rim than a fedora. For some fun facts about the names of these hats, the trilby was named after a play based off of George du Maurier’s book, Trilby. In the play, one of the characters wore one of these hats. The fedora was also named after a play called Princess Fedora where the main character wore this style of hat.

Thanks Truth in Fashion!

Lesson Learned and I still get to be in Style!

LIVE Life…And get your terminology right.

Trying to be Boho Chic…#Houston


How to Buy a Boho Bag

By the ChicFashionista

Most boho handbags are slouchy, made of natural materials like leather (faux or real, it doesn’t matter) or suede. The classic leather hobo handbags go with everything, while the more colorful ones (patchwork, prints, etc.) are great for adding a focal point to your outfit. Whatever bag you choose, if you want to look boho chic, make sure you buy the ones with vintage details such as braids, tassels and fringes. These details are often what define original bohemian style!

You can never go wrong with faux leather and faux suede in black, tan or dark brown. They are two versatile materials that look good with most outfits. By choosing the classics you’re free to play with other accessories like jewelry without messing up your outfit.

If you have a more eclectic bohemian style, try patch work designs or eye catching colors like mustard yellow, deep purple, and reds (anything that is a bit splashy) the better. Just  try to keep the rest of your outfit simple.

Make sure you drop by the Fabulous $40 and Flirty $30 Handbag section on our site where you’ll find lots of boho chic handbag essentials great for your Fun life and Flirty outfits.

LIVE Life…and look fabulous!

Trying to Be #Trendy in #Houston


Trend Alert: Houston we have Fedoras!

They were all the buzz this weekend when I visited San Fran, but I noticed we are just getting the trend in Houston.  Well, where can I get one? I recently bought mine from a Shecky’s Event in Houston and the vendor happened to be from California.  So I jumped on my Store Manager, Angela, to order the stylish hats for the Summer.  Don’t you love me? 

Now you can get your Official Hatter Company Fedoras online.  They are only $25 bucks plus shipping and handling.  They are super cute and come in a few different colors to match every wardrobe.  Be sure to get yours today as we only have a limited supply in stock.  I even bought an ivory colored one and a brown one….LOL  Gettin’ high off my own supply, I guess! 

Polyvore can’t get enough of menswear-inspired staples, either. So it’s no surprise that the Fedora was featured on their site! It’s a great accessory that can work for any season with enough versatility to make any outfit super stylish. Check out Z-tHBoH’s suggestions on how to rock the fedora and have fun working it into your own look.
