The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #82, the “Carolina”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 2 at maggiemae.com.
The Carolina has a flat brim created out of silver dupioni silk. Measuring nearly 22 inches across, one of Carolina’s features is that her brim may be shaped by the wearer in many different ways to give her different looks and attitude.
A rose pink satin sash encircles the crown and five clusters of handcrafted rose-colored rose curls with medleys of silver silk organza leaves frame them. Each floral “nest” is nestled into wispy mounds of soft swirling silver tulle that have been layered over the entire brim.
Our “Carolina” wide brim chapeau is ready for her grand debut at the Run for the Roses to see the horses prance and hear thousands of voices join to sing “My Old Kentucky Home”. The mint juleps await!
For more views of the “Carolina” hat design shown above, please visit the Carolina Der147-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
