We are in the process of rolling out a new series of hats — top hats. We are so excited to show them to you we thought we would give you a sneak peek with the Jamie Hattingon top hat design.
Jamie Hattingdon wears a green top hat inspired by the Emerald Isle.
The Jamie design features a curvaceous crown rounded at the top and has a slim slightly upturned brim. The hatband is made of a black belt buckled up in gold with a wee shamrock tucked in at the edge.
Great for St. Patrick’s Day and celebrating all things Irish.
How about this to get you in the festive spirit for St. Patrick’s Day or anything Irish? Isn’t this scarf fun? $22.50 before today’s Zazzle sale price taking $2.25 off.
Made with pre-shrunk 100% jersey cotton t-shirt material, it’s great for winter warmth and summer style! One size fits all (90″ x 16″).
We thought you would find this fun too. And these Irish phrases will give you some ideas of what to say in your greeting cards, tees etc.
