MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 100 of 101

Welcome to Day 2 of A Derby Hat Countdown featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®. We began our countdown yesterday with the “Sedona” chapeau and we are looking forward to inspiring you all the way to the Derby, one day and one HAT at a time!

And now we present our second hat in the Derby Hat Countdown… the “Kristy”…


The “Kristy” hat was created as a custom design for Kristy Deyeso of New York, New York. Kristy and her husband John are devoted horse racing fans and Kristy needed a very special design for the Kentucky Oaks races to match her dress.

The result was this multi-layered chapeau in white dupioni silk with two white silk organza wavy brim layers. I trimmed the front of the hat with a single hot pink taffeta rose curl to pull the hat to the dress and then framed it with black satin leaves and a double bow created out of black silk organza lined with hot pink taffeta.


To pull it all together I added a layer of black chenille ball hat veiling to cover the wavy organza brim layers and finally, a black satin sash to complete the look.

For more views and all the yummy details about the “Kristy” chapeau, please visit the Kristy hat webpage.

Please visit my KY Derby Hat Collection at the MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® website where we are offering four unique Derby salons with hats arranged according to size: extra wide brims, wide brims, medium brims and small brims/fascinators. There’s always something new to see when it’s Derby time!

Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Day 2 of our Derby Hat Countdown. 99 hats to go!

‘Til next time,
