Kentucky Derby Millin-spiration

The Kentucky Derby is upon us which means that there are going to be plenty of hats to oggle over for the next few days. Big, bright, wide, and tall; every type of hat surfaces when it comes to the Kentucky Derby. Obviously we’re partial to anything extravagant because we like pieces that make a statement!
