Statement Piece

May 5, 2011 at 5:35 AM 4 comments


The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner and you know what that means…it’s time to find a hat!!  I’m thrilled that my cousin is having an engagement party on Derby day.  She has been an equestrian her entire life and so this party is perfect for her.  She will be in the most fabulous hat that her mom found for her in Paris.  I can’t wait to show pictures!  In the meantime, here are some hat inspiration shots…


I, of course, must look to the Royal Wedding for inspiration as well…

A chic hat is the ultimate statement piece.  I raided a vintage store for myself and my mother.  We do have extras if you attending the event and in need of a hat.

I’m debating between wearing the cream, navy or a large black one that I don’t have pictured.  I’m going to pack about 5,000 different options.  We shall see.  I can’t wait!! Pictures to come…

    i vote for the cream! it is divine and feminine and unique; if i were going to your cousin’s engagement party, it’s the one i’d choose. on the other hand, w/ your new bangs, the black might be soooooo audrey hepburn and stunning; ahhhhhhhh, decisons, decisions!
    forgot to mention how grand the story was yesterday about the art and the damage and the ultimate ressurection; an heirloom in the making.

    Those are lovely and so fun. I was wondering if we’d see a Royal Wedding shot of the daughter of a reader, but alas, those haven’t been circulated yet. I think I know what black hat you speak of that isn’t pictured. If it’s the one I’m thinking of, you know I think it is fabulous!

    What a great theme for the engagement party! I love any excuse to wear a hat. The hats were the best part of the Royal Wedding, I so wish we had more occasions to wear hats here in the US. You can’t go wrong with any of your options but if you really want to go crazy I can loan you my hard hat from work. 🙂
