Bonnets available TODAY at 6 pm EST
Bonnets available TODAY at 6 pm EST
Who’s ready for this PREVIEW!? My preview works like this: you’re able to browse all of the bonnets that will be available on drop day here on our Pinterest page. Then on Saturday at 6 pm EST all of the bonnets you've seen on Pinterest will be live on the website here.
There are a few options at checkout: you can checkout through Shopify using a credit card, Apple Pay, PayPal, & Google Pay. Apple Pay is proving to be a bit faster than PayPal lately. There are no cart holds. The bonnet/s you have in your cart can be bought by another customer while you're trying to check out. To avoid people purchasing the bonnet/s that are in your cart a lot of people choose to place multiple orders to ensure they get the bonnets they want. They cart one bonnet they want, check out fast and then go back to see if their second choice is still available. If so, they check out again. If you do this we CANNOT refund your shipping. Think of the extra shipping charge as insurance that you snagged the bonnets you wanted.
We have over 40 designs with more to come this week. There are, as of right now, 412 bonnets available. Since the last drop, I have gained quite a few more followers and many have been asking if these bonnets sell fast. In the past, yes they have, but I never know what each drop will bring. The bonnets are all 1-10 of a kind and most will not be able to be made again.
There are a few things that I will go over that make everything run smoothly for us here. After these drops happen we have over 350 orders to ship. Listed below are things that make it easier for us to run this like a well-oiled machine:
Please only purchase a bonnet if you REALLY want one. In the past, people have bought bonnets and have wanted to return them instantly saying that they got "click happy". That requires us to relist the bonnet quickly so that other buyers can get what they want. This then causes a lot of confusion on the shipping end.
Please be sure your address is correct, we want to be sure your bonnet gets to the right house!
We cannot refund for misused coupon codes. With over 350 orders to fulfill, sending refunds is just not possible. If you are using a coupon code I recommend having it ready to copy and paste in the coupon code field, saving a little bit of time and avoiding typos.
I'll say it again because I always get messages about it after the drop: we cannot combine shipping. In order for this to run smoothly we need to fulfill the orders they way they come in. Consider the extra shipping charge as insurance you got the bonnet you wanted. Some people want to help us by offering to have their bonnets shipped together without the requesting a refund, wanting to save us from using extra packing time/materials. I appreciate you guys for that but honestly, the way it all runs, it's hard to fish out your orders and combine them. You'll get lots of extra business cards and packing materials to hand off to strangers when they comment on your beautiful bonnet!
First measure from jawbone up around the head (above the forehead) and back down to the other side, then the second measurement from one temple to around the back of the head to the other temple. If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up.
6-12 months 14.5" and 14
12-18 months 16" and 14.5"
18-24 months 16.5" and 15.25"
We ship worldwide and to FPO addresses.
You can create a customer account for faster checkout if you want but it's not required. If you click the little person icon in the top right corner of the screen you can fill out all the info we need.
Some have found it helpful to be signed into PayPal before they check out to ensure everything goes smoothly
I get flooded with DMs and emails after a drop. I try to answer everyone and make sure that things are dealt with, but I am only one person! I have help with all other aspects of this business (which I am so grateful for!) but I am the only person who runs my IG/email/website correspondence. Please try to be patient with me.
Lastly, if you have any questions you’d like to ask me personally I will be doing a live stream on Instagram Thursday of this week. I will announce the time in a post on IG. In that live stream, I will show the linings of the bonnets, talk about sizing and how to measure your baby's noggin for the perfect fit.
I love this business more than I can even put into words. You have all lifted me up this past year. I started this whole thing a bit over two years ago and it has been such a journey for me. One of tears, triumphs, obstacles, some heartbreak and a lot of joy. Your love for my brand and my family makes every sleepless night and queasy stomach worth it. I get so nervous about these previews hoping we have created something for everyone.
Give a round of applause to my team, please, they truly deserve it. Arleen who is my expert cutter and seamstress, Mom who is the trim maker, trimmer of bonnets and embroidered bonnet maker, I am the one who designs them all, takes all the photos and manages the marketing end of everything. Then last but not least, there is Marc. He is my rock, the one who feeds me and the children/bathes those children/cleans house/groceries/ties all the bonnets/ships bonnets… never-ending support. We all do A TON to make this whole thing go. I’m exhausted just thinking about all of it.
I hope you love what I’ve designed because I surely do. Best job in the whole world, I feel like I’ve been given a gift and that gift is all of you. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it.
If you have any further questions that weren't answered above you can try reading my FAQs and Store Policies page. If you still can't find your answer shoot me an email or a DM on Instagram.

Carrie, Arleen, Mom, Marc, Elliot and little Leia
