The Kentucky Derby Hats of 2009

There is nothing I love more than a big floppy hat and a mint julep. I had my money on General Quarters for this Kentucky Derby because I watched the preshow and heard the owner’s story. That’s the last time I rely on my emotions for a bet. But, here are some of my favorite hats from this weekend. I especially love the really floppy one at the bottom.
