Millinery: Don't forget: Virtual Kentucky Derby Day tomorrow

Hey all...tomorrow is the big day for hat lovers: The Kentucky Derby!
We're all going to have a Virtual Kentucky Derby Day party on our blogs, remember?

Even Hillary Clinton has gotten into the hat wearing act.

You can see her modeling her KDD hat in the video at the end of this article.

And you can learn a bit about the milliner who made the hat here.

(If HC wins the election, can we all send her tips on hat wearing and selection? Especially for hat selection for state funerals abroad? Love ya Laura Bush, but that black hat your wore to that one funeral just made me hang my head in national millinery shame...)

Ladies: Don you biggest and best hats tomorrow, tune into the TV in time to sing "My Old Kentucky Home" and cheer your horse to victory. Take a picture of yourself in your hat (and your friends too...) and post a picture on your blog. Let me know, and I'll add a link to your post.

It'll be a Virtual Kentucky Derby Day party!

Laura and I will be attending the Houston Hat Nets Kentucky Derby party tomorrow. We'll be having a good time...and hope you will be too.
Can't wait to see your hat pictures.
I'm sure they will all look like winners.

Those are the most beautiful hats ever! Thank you for the glimpse.

Well, even though the hat was a disaster, did you notice how it softened her face.....

What outfit are you both going to wear and which hats? I am sure you will both be the highlight of the derby. B
