In about two weeks, Washingtonians will be heading to the races and nothing says Derby than a fabulous hat. One of the best things about being a woman is being able to have a lot of fun with our clothing and accessories. I am set on wearing a really nice hat for Gold Cup this year so on a recent shopping excursion at Neiman Marcus, I stopped by the accessories department to scout some hats.
If you can’t make it to a milliner for a custom made creation, the next best thing is to shop the hat departments at boutiques and department stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. There are many stores in the area that carry hats in all different price points. Proper Topper, the Hattery and Filene’s Basement Come to mind.
Neiman Marcus in Frienship Heights has a wonderful array of hats that will complete your Gold Cup and Derby frocks. Check out some of the ones I found. I love the turquoise and chocolate bow. I actually wish I could wear that dress so that I could buy that hat but I have worn that dress too many times so it will not be making an appearance.
