I traveled to Saratoga Springs a couple of times this summer to go to the horse races. Not that I’m interested in betting or anything, I just love to see the way people dress (and to dress up). The notable part of dressing for horse races is the hat.

Unfortunately, if you want to have a nice hat, you’re going to have to spend some money – more money than you want to. So what I did was head over to TJ Maxx to pick out a nice wide-brimmed hat, and then to the craft store for feathers, ribbons and felt. Armed with these and my hot glue gun, I put together a fascinator, which I could wear on its own or tie onto the hat with the ribbon. Now I have two hats and two fascinators all for the price of $30.
But on to other people.
I love the way this woman looked, reclining in her lawn chair, with her hat sticking out over the top of her newspaper.
While these women were dressed a little tragically (trashy), they did have some fabulous hats.
Outside of the stands, a four-piece band was performing and this couple was dancing.
This trio of lovely ladies was watching the performance. They get the Best-Dressed award. Everything about their ensembles was great, from hats, to swingy pleated skirts, to shoes.
