When Southern Preppy Meets Old Glam Ecclectic: the Fashion of Kentucky Derby
Arguably the most exciting thing about the Kentucky Derby is that hats. I mean, sure there's a horse race going on, but really--how often do you get to see masses of people wearing seersucker suits, feathered fascinators, and/or pastel dress monstrosities all on one Saturday afternoon while drinking bourbon cocktails out of fancy cups? Once a year, is how often. On Derby Day!
You KNOW I Love This "Holiday"
It's not often that one's contemporary collection of fancy hats comes in handy. Most of the time it comes about at Halloween and Derby Day. And if you are in need of wardrobe pieces for a fancy dress occasion, you wouldn't be wrong to look through my regular clothes to find them! Ha!
