Kentucky Derby Style: Fancy Hats and Fascinators

The Kentucky Derby is here!  Derby season kicks off the Spring hat season!  First it’s the Derby and then the Central Park Conservancy’s annual Frederick Law Olmsted Luncheon this Wednesday in NYC – so fancy hats very well may be on your mind.  Take some inspiration from the photos below and then shop our boutique towards the bottom of this post.  If you are receiving this via email in your inbox, you will need to click this link to view the hat boutique – it has flash and won’t show up in emails.  Nothing says Spring elegance like a beautiful hat.  Prices for horse-race-suitable hats can range in price from $40 at Macy’s or Nordstrom up to more expensive options at places like Suzanne Millinery in Manhattan where hand-made hats can go for $1200-$1500.  Suzanne has created a number of my hats for the Central Park hat party – she is fabulous and they are heirlooms to be passed down to daughters and granddaughters!   Take a peek at 24 hats and fascinators that we selected for quick shipping for various on-line vendors below. Take a look!
