Gearing up for The Kentucky Derby!

As you all know, I live the in the heart of  Kentucky where the Kentucky Oaks and Derby Horse Racing event is held! It is a HUGE deal!!  Our small town is getting geared up for The Kentucky Derby that will take place two weeks from tomorrow.  I decorate hats for the occasion and our Chamber of Commerce held an annual Spring Fashion Show yesterday to show off some Derby attire.  We go all out here in Kentucky, so you really MUST look your BEST... and wear a BIG hat...

These were our three beautiful models wearing dresses from our boutique and sporting some of my one of a kind Derby hats!!  It was such a fun day and everyone looked so pretty!  I apologize for the bad lighting photos, the country club has glass windows all the way around and it was very glaring.  

Does anyone get into the Kentucky Oaks or Derby??  Do you get dressed up?  Do you wear a BIG hat??

Have a fabulous week.... hugs, Ginger


  1. I watch and always pick a horse based on the name but I look terrible in hats. Your though are stunning my friend.

  2. I have a friend who has been trying to coordinate a Kentucky Derby party, where we dress like we're there, drink mint juleps and eat fried chicken and Kentucky Derby Pie, and watch the races on TV.
    Someday, I am definitely going! :D

    Have a blast!

  3. I know Ky does go all out for the Derby. Sounds like a lot of fun.

  4. Been to the Derby once when I was in my 20's but we were in the cheap seats! I'd rather be dressed up now. Laura

  5. I think the ladies look fabulous! I have never been, but I would definitely go all out if I was. You did a great job with the hats. I have always wanted to taste a mint julep. xo

  6. I use to go when I was married to a horse trainer. Now I just enjoy it from the comfort of the living room. Love the hats :)

  7. I never wear hats because I spend an obscene amount of money on my hair, so why would I want to cover it up! ;P Your hats are cute, Ginger!


  8. I love those hats! I wear hats and those are awesome.


Talk to me, I promise I will talk back.
