The Big Re-brand

Hi Everyone!

You may have noticed that Cincy Couture has recently undergone some changes. What started as a tiny beauty blog is growing into something more exciting. While this website will still remain a blog, we’re expanding into a monthly magazine as well (publishing details are still to come, but if you’re an aspiring fashion journalist, there will be many options for collaboration!)

With this new global outlook comes another change – a name change! “Cincy Couture” is where we started (small and in Cincinnati) but we wanted a name that would better reflect who we’re connecting with – fashionistas from all over the world. So, from now on, we’ll be called “Haute Couture Society.”

Thanks to everyone who has connected with Cincy Couture. We’re not disappearing, we’re just evolving. As we enter this period of continued transition, we’ll still be posting lots of reviews, but starting in January of 2019, we’ll have even more to offer with the launch of our magazine!

Top 5 Hats from the 2018 Kentucky Derby 

Yesterday was the Kentucky Derby! I’m terrified of horses, but I’d love to go someday so that I can just admire all of the fashions. Being in Cincinnati, it’s just a short drive away, so maybe next year!

Anyway, while I wasn’t there in person, I did scour the internet for a glimpse of some of the fabulous hats, and I wanted to share my top five favorites:

1. This first one is my top pick. I love the black and white. It’s classy but really dramatic. The matching feathers also work so well. This is a quintessential Kentucky Derby hat!

2. I also love a pop of color! This lavender hat was amazing for Spring. I don’t quite understand the orange plumes on the side, but overall this is a really neat hat.

3. This third hat really works for me because it’s dramatic but neutral. It would seem way too extreme if it was in a brighter color, but the demure tones help the overall look to come together. I’d love to try this one on!

4. I’m totally biased towards this hat because it looks like an exaggerated version of the fascinator I purchased to wear for the royal wedding (I have not been invited but I am throwing my own party that day to celebrate). It’s pink, so of course I love it!

5. Last, but not least, we have our most dramatic hat! It’s like the Kentucky Derby meets Coachella! This is an example of a deliberately over-the-top hat, and while it’s not one that I would feel comfortable wearing, I definitely respect it and admire the rose detailing. It also kind of looks like a dream catcher, which I find interesting.
