Derby Fashion Obsession: Polly Singer Couture Hats and Veils

Honestly, I have no idea what I was doing. This horse-related post adventure upon which I am embarked gets me genuinely cattywompus at times as I mentally gallop off on all these enchanting roads. I was not intending to post on race fashion but while working on the Derby inspiration board, I needed a hat with red roses. I found Polly on the hunt and now I plan to lurk around her website most days, updating it every few minutes and catching my breath. Yes, People, her hats are that compelling.

A word of advice on these hats: Whether or not you have an occasion to wear her work, you should create one or else wear it around the house. Or you could wear it to the Kentucky Derby; one of Ms. Singer's understandably popular events. Lastly, the New York Conservancy Luncheon would be a marvelous place for the pink and green item (Lily girls - I think you hear me knocking.) and countless others.

I had a devil of a time with the photos, so let's say we'll do this: I will show you the board I made of her work and a few photos from Polly's blog. Then you can immediately go over to her website and experience the adventure for yourself. Then let me know what you think. What do you say?Polly singer

You get the picture. Here are a few more photos incase you are not yet convinced.

I adore the bottom one in chocolate brown. I have always loved hats - veils and gloves!

I adore hats -- especially by designer Louise Green. I was fortunate to pick up a few of her hats from EBay at decent prices. The hats you have shown are just wonderful! Thanks!
