Annabelle Enters the Red Carpet

Welcome once again to  “The Red Carpet by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®” at Hats and Horses!

We’re just 49 days out from the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and I’d like to share a very special Derby chapeau with you. Her name is “Annabelle”.

Annabelle has been a cherished standard in my collection of Derby hats at MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® for over 8 years. Always a popular choice for both the Derby and the Oaks, Annabelle is created in burnt rose linen and hot pink linen, and trimmed with a single large hot pink rose curl and matching sash and buttons.

Over the years, Annabelle’s trims changed a bit as she “matured”. Consequently, this year I decided that I would give Annabelle a very special Derby makeover and photo shoot.

This slideshow is the result of that idea. I hope that you enjoy dear Annabelle even a fraction as much as I have all these many years…

You’ll find more information about Annabelle when you visit the Annabelle Der7-003 webpage created especially for her at MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®.
