Dresses at Hatpins.

May 3, 2009 at 1:04 pm (Announcements, Hatpins)

I heard this a lot:  I love your hats, but it’s hard to find something to go with them.

So I decided to learn how to make dresses to accessorize my hats, and according to those who have bought them, the quality and attention to detail is as one would expect from Hatpins. That makes me happy, but a person can only judge for themself. Pictures are never as good as seeing the actual thing, but it’s close!

This dress is (currently) available in six colours: red, grey, plum, black, blue, and brown.

So far, this dress is only available in this one way, but there are plans to add more. This style seems to be quite popular.

Currently available in nine colours, I have no plans to expand this one.

Currently available in brown, lavender and green, each coloured dress is different from each other in the bodice’s design. There are plans to expand this one for more colours.

That’s it for dresses for now! Please visit the shop to see the group gift (a Carrie dress with a matching hat) and grab a 1L hat!

Thank you for reading  and looking.

New at Hatpins for early October.

October 4, 2008 at 10:43 pm (Announcements, Hatpins, Hats)

Hello! I hope this update finds you in good health and happy spirits. 🙂

Here’s a little update on what’s new at Hatpins.

First of all – the group gift! It can be found at all three full shops (Zebranky, Caledon, Haute Couture). It’s also for sale, so make sure you get the right one. 🙂 Don’t forget to wear your group tag, either! This will only be available as a group gift until 15 October, and then it’s gone. Landmarks are at the bottom of this note.

Second – new hats. And I themed them for Hallowe’en, which seemed like a fun thing to do. These hats are available only at the Haute Couture and Caledon SouthEnd shops due to space restriction. Oh, and at Haute Couture, there’s a Lady Cordelia hat hanging from a hat rack who is only 25L instead of 175L.

Please allow me to show the new hats to you:

Lady Jacqueline, who is also the group gift, is up first. She’s Victorian in style, and has got embroidery on her. She’s the fraternal twin of Lord Jacques, who is a Victorian smoking hat for gentlemen. Both are black hats with orange and green embroidery  — well, pictures say more than I can. 🙂

Purrfect for the Halloween colours!

Next is Lady Hecate, who is a sexy witch hat in gothic colours.

Who says witches are always ugly?

Who says witches have to be ugly?

And next is Lady Endora, who is a top hat with black and orange ornamentation.

Oh, love that orange and black!

Oh, love that orange and black!

Lastly is another set of fraternal twins, the Witchiepoos. Isn’t that a lovely name? One has a veil of cobwebs dangling from the tip, and the other is without. Both hats emit spiders when you touch the cobwebs on the cone. Not recommended for arachnophobes.

Mmm, spiders.

Mmm, spiders.

Mmm, Reg and spiders.

Mmm, Reg and spiders.

Also, at the Oak Trees shop, please let me draw your attention to a pile of boxes at the end of Hatpins’ pathway. Accompanying the pile is a sign that reads Tiny Threads.

These are Tiny dresses, and they’re all Victorian. Furthermore, they’ve all got matching hats. If you’d just rather have the dress because you’ve got or don’t want the hat, please notecard me, and I’ll deduct the hat price and sell the dress on its own. My hats do fit Tiny heads, and only need to be adjusted in position! :3

Thank you for reading, and be warned that a new dollarbie will be happening around the 15th! Oh, and another group gift is coming your way soon, as well. The group reached and went over 100 people, and I did promise a gift then.

Cordially,
Miss Reghan Straaf.

New store, new name.

May 15, 2008 at 2:50 am (Announcements, Hatpins, Ramblings, Sales!) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I am excited to announce that I am opening a new store in Caledon, called Hatpins. This is the first time I’ve ever owned the land my own store is on, and having the land in Caledon is something I strived to do ever since I realized I could make hats. So it’s a major thing for me! And I can’t believe I forgot to blog it. Wait, yes I can.

Anyways, it’s in the search as hatpins, and it’s the only one that comes up. My grand opening celebration is from 6-8 tonight – Thursday. I’ll have cut prices until midnight on select items, and various other things. Radio Riel is going to be providing the presenter and the music, which is good, because I really (rielly?) like them. Everybody is welcome.

I’ve also got several new hats, two top hats – one for ladies and one for men; a really big hat with a bow on one side and flowers on the other called Lady Minerva; Gentleman In A Box, which is a boxed set of the aforementioned men’s top hat, two monocles (one for each eye), a gold tipped walking stick, and a gentleman’s guide to etiquette, a complimentary gift from Sir JJ Drinkwater and the Caledon Libraries.

As I said, this is a big day for me and I thank everyone who helped me see this day, from the teachers at the various SL schools I went to so I could learn, to those who donated shop space or space for me to build in so I could save my lindens, to those who encouraged me, to those who bought my hats, and to the ones who told me how much they love my hats. Thank you!

Oh, and I’m going to continue using Reghan’s Hats & Hodgepodge. It makes a good umbrella sort of name since I make and sell more than just hats.

And thank you for reading this! I’d post some pictures, and I probably should, but I am going to bed…big day today and I’ll be working like mad from when I wake up and loving every stress-filled minute.
