Laura, Found of You here. The reason you are having a hard time is because fabulous Kentucky Derby hats are SO EXPENSIVE (See #1). My advice would be to buy an unadorned big floppy hat, then head to your local craft store to deck it out with ribbons, feathers, flowers, and whatever else suits your fancy. P.S. You made us all want a Mint Julep. Mmmmm...
1 - Black Wide-Brimmed Kentucky Derby/Church/Wedding Hat ($560)
2 - SunGrubbies Scarlet Derby Hat ($38)
3 - Rebecca Derby Hat ($38)
4 - Ostrich Plume Feathers ($3 each)
5 - White Daisy Silk Flowers ($5 for 12)
6 - Black Chiffon Ribbon with Silver Sparkles ($12)
7 - Peacock Feathers ($11 for 12)
