Derby Fashions!

north carolina interior designer and author kathryn crisp greeley presents derby daysI love hats and wear them quiet often.  Any excuse for a hat wearing suits me!  And there is no finer place for hats than at the annual Kentucky Derby!  The Derby has a long history of elegant attire!  If you are interested in the history of the attire at the Derby, go over to the official site and read about the history of hats and all of the glorious attire at the Kentucky Derby.

I have long been a customer of Susanne’s Couture Millinery on East 61st Street in New York.  Her hats are divine and so well made.  Suzanne has a lovely selection of hats and all are so “derby appropriate”!  How about one of these for your trip to the Derby or for your very own Derby Party!

Of course, I am partial to the black and white hats…all of my hats are either black, white, or black and white!
