Hats and Horses Makes Its Saturday Debut

Welcome to the new Saturday time slot for my weekly Hats and Horses blog!

Since the Kentucky Derby falls on the first Saturday in May, I thought it might be fun to celebrate the Derby and Triple Crown season by posting on Saturdays instead of Tuesdays. Although my blog topics will continue to focus on hats and horses, there will be plenty of Derby and Triple Crown emphasis as well.

I am also premiering “The Red Carpet by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®” at Hats and Horses which will appear from time to time over the next few weeks till Derby. Here I’ll be debuting new Derby hat designs as well as showing long-standing favorites, red carpet style. Photos will be presented of the hats along with links to their corresponding webpages at www.maggiemae.com to give you more views of each hat along with their product details.

Today I am excited to present to you three designs on our Red Carpet that are new to the Kentucky Derby Hat Collection at MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®. Each is unique and full of personality.

“Elizabeth” is the smallest of the three hat designs, but don’t let her diminutive size fool you. This tiny red fascinator in monochromatic red silk, satin and tulle is full of pizzazz and charisma as you will see when you visit the Elizabeth Derby Fascinator webpage!

“Marcelle” is our second hat debuting on the Red Carpet. Like her sister from last Derby season, this monochromatic pink “Marcelle” is full of elegance and stunning innovation with a wispy tulle overlayer, organza “feathers” and delicate organza Marguerite. You can visit her at the Marcelle Derby Chapeau webpage.

Last but not least, the “Rita” Derby chapeau makes her grand entrance today onto the Red Carpet. As bedazzling as her movie star’s namesake, this stunning big brimmed Derby hat design in bold red and black silk and taffeta is sure to set your toes to tapping and your heart to singing. To learn more about the design, please visit the Rita Derby Chapeau webpage.
