Chapeau Couture Opens Shop at Kenwood Towne Centre

Danielle Delaine, owner and designer for Chapeau Couture Hat Boutique

Hats off to my friend Danielle Delaine! She just took her business, Chapeau Couture Hat Boutique, to a new level by opening up a new storefront inside Kenwood Towne Centre across from the Coach store!

She’s scheduled to be there during Spring and Summer months every year! Perfect timing with Derby season right around the corner! I always get a ton of emails from readers wondering where to get a fab hat this time of year, so here’s your answer!

Danielle is not only the owner but she’s also the designer of these haute couture hats, and she has a ton of new designs to fill up her new shop (see some of my fav designs below)! Plus, she has a no-duplications hat policy. So you don’t have to worry about seeing your hat on another fashionista at your fete! 

And to give you even more reason to show off your new hat purchase, she’s also coordinating an event called “Brims and Bow Ties” (way fun!) on May 10 in Washington Park. You can buy tickets here or at her new boutique in Kenwood Towne Centre.

Check out her Facebook page and Twitter account to get event, store, and design updates! Enjoy and happy hat shopping!

Christine Moore Trunk Show at Soho Next Weekend

Now THAT, my friends, is a HAT! And not just any hat… a Christine Moore hat.

They’re bold, they’re bright and they’re coming to Cincinnati next weekend. Soho Boutique in Hyde Park is hosting a trunk show April 6 and 7, and it’s your chance to snag one of these haute couture hats. See below for more information about the event that I copy/pasted from Soho’s event listing on Facebook!

Christine Moore Trunk Show
Soho Boutique in Hyde Park, 2757 Observatory Ave.
If you’re look for a hat for Derby, Oaks, a Tea or a Fundraiser this Spring, then this is the event for you!!!

Christine A. Moore hats appear to be everywhere these days!! The New York City-based milliner’s hats were worn by Jennifer Lopez in a photo spread in September’s Vanity Fair. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have also worn Moore’s creations in recent issues of fashion magazines. Elegance, unique design and comfort are what Christine A. Moore Millinery is about. She is known for her finishing work and attention to detail. All embellishments are handmade and unique to her design. Each hat is individually made with great care.

We will be having the trunk show during regular store hours, which are Friday 11-6 and Saturday 11-5!!

Hats Off to this Trunk Show!

Every now and then people submit inquiries into Cincy Chic about things they want/need but can’t find, and ask for our opinions or suggestions. I received one a couple weeks ago from a woman, and she asked where she could get a nice derby hat around Cincinnati. I talked with someone else today at an event and this same question came up. So, I decided to start a new category of this blog called “Ask Amy.” Whenever I get a good question I think you’ll benefit from, I’ll publish the question and my answer. Click here to submit a question.

Here’s the question:

Hi Cincy Chic,

I was curious if you know of any hat shops around Cincinnati that has women’s hats for a horse race such as Keenland? Just let me know!


My reply:

Hi Stephanie!
Thanks for writing. I actually wondered the same thing last derby season, and found one really good shop in the entire Tri-State: Ms Martha’s Dress Shop in Ft. Mitchell KY. But I recently learned that they closed up shop.

Today I did some digging for you and asked some local boutique owners if they had any. I found two in Hyde Park for you: Sassy Boutique and Snap Boutique in Hyde Park. They aren’t super big or fancy. You may need to embellish them. If you want super big or fancy, you may be able to find some online. But if you’re not looking for that, and just want a cute hat to wear and to be able to try on here locally, those two shops are for you!

Hope that helps!

And just today I received an email from Amy at Soho (one of the boutique owners I asked when digging around) and she said Sassy Boutique is having a trunk show this Friday. Info below! Happy hat shopping!


Someone just emailed me this info. Thought it was good to share:

Amy, believe it or not I saw a ton of big cute hats at the TJ Maxx in Hyde Park.  I also saw cute dresses there – but you have to dig through the racks to find them!  Some were high priced hats, but the vast majority were reasonable!
