Lingerie. Underthings. Smalls. Whatever you call them, you can never have enough panties, particularly the amazingly gorgeous variety made by Ohhh Lulu.

Autumn has just hit us here on the Indiana/Kentucky border, and man is it windy. I’ve been cursed with the same haircut as Lion-O from the Thundercats, which means I’m spending most of my days trying to dig my face out so I can actually see where I’m going.

What I need is a hat.

Hat season approacheth, and what better way to celebrate than with a sassy piece of headgear created from a vintage block. While you’re marvelling at how smoothly I transitioned into this, allow me to introduce Lady Eve Millinery, the etsy shop of WeSewRetro-er Aimee.

Everyone say Hi Aimee because Aimee wants to give you your very own hand made vintage style hat. And who am I to stand in her way. One lucky reader will get the hat of their choice from Lady Eve Millinery‘s ready-made stock.

To enter, head over to Lady Eve Millinery and decide which hat you simply must have. (While you’re there, don’t forget to show some love for a small business owner by adding her shop to your favorites!) Then pop back here and tell me which hat you want most and why. The winner will receive the hat they chose in their comment.

Could it be simpler? No! Could it be more awesome? No! Let’s do this!

(My favorite? Definitely the Claudette Cloche)

The winner will be chosen on Friday, October 26th so get your entry in before it’s too late. As always on WeSewRetro, this giveaway is open to entrants worldwide :)
