Waterproof Fascinator- My Day at the Derby

At long last my Derby update! Despite the rainy weather we had a jolly time thanks to good company and a little Kentucky bourbon. As it became clear that the weather wasn't going to cooperate I let go of my visions of the grand feather bedecked sinamay creation and opt for a waterproof fascinator. The blue crinoline burst with roses was the perfect compliment to my yellow poncho and rain boots. Although I didn't see as many cool hats as I had expected, the hat wearing spirit was still alive (somewhere in all that mud) and I have high hopes for next year.
