The Art of Hat Making

The Hat Shop is Almost 10!

Thanks to all of our customers and friends for supporting us, the hat shop is celebrating 9 years in business this month at our studio above Bolsa! We will be doing 10% off all hats through the weekend AND if you send in pictures of yourself in our hats we will put you in a drawing for a free summer hat.

Nine years of you guys rocking my babies while we wrapped up your hats, squeezing into our little space for the Valentine’s Day parties, waiting patiently for your orders during derby season, letting us be a part of your weddings and special events, referring countless people our way, and sharing your life stories with us. Things are way more interesting than I would have thought possible back in 2008 when I signed the lease on a 200 square foot office above a yet to be opened restaurant.

HOM Pop Up at DLM Supply Co June 9th-June 11th

The hat shop will be closing at 4 this Saturday but our pop up at DLM Supply Co is going on all weekend. Father’s Day gifts are pretty easy in that shop!

New Summer Men’s Hats in Stock

We have a pretty full selection of men’s hats in the studio right now. We sell these off the shelf or use them as a starting point for custom orders.

Back in the Studio with Summer Hats!

After a little post derby break we are back in the studio with some cute summer hats! Priced between $130-$175, these are easy pieces for the Texas heat. We will be open Saturday from 12-4 but closed on Monday for Memorial Day.

Derby is Here!

After an amazing derby season and meeting so many new customers we will be in 12-3 this Saturday and then taking a few days off to repair our hands, nerves, and inventory! Drink a julep!

Hat first or dress?

We are normally fans of finding the dress first and hat second but at this point in the game it’s time to switch to hat first. The dress will be easier to find! We are open M, W, F 11-4 and Saturday’s 12-5 with plenty of derby hats left!

New Milliner at the HOM

We are thrilled to welcome a new milliner into our product line at the hat shop. The charming Evelyn McDermott popped into the studio last summer on layer over and we hit it off at first hat. Based in Dubai, Evelyn has trained with Rose Cory in London, milliner to the late Queen Mother. Her hats frequent the Dubai World Cup and she adds a more European sensibility to our fascinator line up. Her pieces will be in the studio until after the derby so come by and check out this talented hat maker!

In House Derby Hats

Although we are no longer taking custom derby hat orders we do still have plenty of cute hats in stock. Bring in your dress and we will find something to match M, W, F 11-4 and Saturdays 12-5. Below is a sampling of pieces we have ready to box up!

Final Weekend for Derby Custom Orders!

If you are headed to the derby don’t miss a stop by the hat shop this weekend. We will be doing a special trunk show with Jill Courtemanche Millinery from LA on Saturday and Monday from 11-5 and it will be our last weekend for custom hat orders. We will have a full house of in stock hats to offer our clients after this. Reserve your spot by email at or 214-942-1966!

More hats in the studio!

We have a great selection of derby hats in the studio right now! We will be taking custom orders until April 1st so you have two more weekends to make it in by then. If you already have your dresses selected, it helps to bring them too. We will be open 12-3 on Friday March 17th and 2-5 on Saturday the 18th.
