Deighton Cup Hat Guide

*Update*
Now featured in VancityBuzz


With only 2 and a half weeks before the social event of the summer, women in Vancouver are topping off their outfits with the perfect accessory - A hat fit for a day at the races.


As soon as I got my ticket for The Deighton Cup, I visualized myself as Audrey Hepburn circa My Fair Lady. (Isn't she classic?) 

I began looking for the best places to buy a hat. I searched and searched, and I realized I was putting more effort into finding a hat than I did for a final at UBC. So to save everyone the trouble I created a list of the must-have hat shops in Vancouver. The list includes websites, contact info, hours of operation and pricing for every budget.  

Now if you're new to the hat scene, like I was, you might not know what a milliner is (initially I thought everyone making hats in Vancouver shared the same last night - blonde moment), so here you go:


Although Vancouverites aren't known to dress up, The Deighton Cup is the perfect excuse to look like royality. Enjoy - and check out my hat(s) at the end of the post!

Where did I get my hat
Entitled Hats


Entitled Hat's creator, Benita Dibdin, spent 20 years in costume design for movies such as iRobot, Red Riding Hood, A Very Muppet Christmas, X-Men, Catwoman and Twilight (just to name a few). She imports quality materials from England and her price point was just right for my 'twentysomething' budget. Here's a sneak peek at the hat & head-piece I'll be donning at this years Deighton Cup.
