Derby Day!

Do you celebrate the Kentucky Derby?  I am sure if you live in KY you do, but here in CA, not so much.
Well Saturday is our Annual DAR Spring Meeting and Pre-Derby Luncheon!  And there is a Hat Contest!  So I became a milliner for a few hours!

Last week I found this great hat at Burlington Coat Factory for 50% off!  Score.
My dress is basic black, but I have a cool pair of turquoise earrings, so guess which color I went with?
Went to Michaels yesterday and got ribbon, 50% off, feathers and a jewel, oh yeah and a few flowers!
Then went to JoAnn's and found some great netting.  So here is a few during shots.
And the cool after!  I am ready to go!
Game on!  Can't wait to see what others have come up with.  This was fun, and really only took about 1/2 hour!

Warm, windy and fires here in So Cal today.  Hope all are well, and be safe!
