A Potpourri of Hats!

Who doesn’t love a cute hat? I literally bumped into a fantastic hat kiosk tonite in Westfield’s UTC Shopping Center.  Personally, I wear a lot of hats on the advice of my dermatologist.  (you can never be too careful with your skin and sun protection in the summer!)  Check out this small but mighty kiosk…


  • Chapeaux – jour au nuit apropos
  • Email: ChapeauxHats@yahoo.com
  • Westfield UTC
  • 4545 La Jolla Village Drive
  • San Diego, CA  92122
  • Phone: (619) 944-0381

So, fellow San Diego residents– if you are getting ready for opening day at the Del Mar Racetrack this might be a good place to shop for that necessary new hat.  Prices range from $20 to $45 for basic hats.  If you want something more on the fancy side prices go from $45 to $110.

I found a fantastic selection of floral headbands for $10 to $14.  These are perfect for younger girls.

That sign below w/ the visors being “buy 1/get 1 at 50% off”— nice! That visor would be easy to roll up and pack into a travel bag for a weekend getaway or vacation, right?

I had a nice conversation with the owner, Jenifer C.  She told me trunk shows are available upon request. A percentage of sales can either go to the host or benefit a charity.


I’m thinking one of these visors might be good to wear either at the beach or maybe when I’m out and about on weekends. After all, I am in sunny San Diego!

Of course, check out the photo below with the amazing floral headbands.  What a great way to add a little color into your world.

I found this shop last Sunday when I was strolling thru Del Mar area. It was a nice afternoon for a walk and turns out it was a nice afternoon for some light shopping as well.  Pictured above you will see a lovely Missoni sweater and a fun little Prada bag– looks like there’s a Fendi bag peeking out from behind!  There was some good stuff to be scored in this place as you can see.

On a personal note, I’ve shopped here many times myself.  I have a weakness for handbags– as you can see by my photo choices.  And this shop has a great inventory of bags!

This weekend I had a nice surprise when I walked into Ladies Designer Resale Boutique.  I was on a walk in Del Mar and spotted a rack of clothes– of course I had no choice but to check it out.  This store had everything from sunglasses to shoes to suits. The shop was well merchandised and easy to shop.

I met Lucy– the store manager who was energetic and had lots to chat about.  She showed me a few really cute handbags– as you can see!  The store is open 7 days/week from 10:30 am to 5 pm. Great hours– especially for those of us who work during the week and have to save our shopping for weekends.
