Now, That’s More Like It!

It wasn’t all hideous boots at Cheltenham today. It was ladies day and gorgeous hats were in evidence. Unlike Ascot, which is run in the summer, Cheltenham is in early spring, and let me tell you from experience, it can get pretty chilly standing at the rails at Cheltenham or Chepstow cheering on your sure-thing bet.

I love the detail on the sleeves of this coat, and the pink, of course!Cheltenham1 I’d love to see the bird that gave its feathers for this hat!Cheltenham2 However, I don’t think there’s any excuse for wearing a dead animal on your head.

  1. Meg fabulouus as you say except for the creature up there!

  2. Here's hoping the creature is vintage revived

  3. Every hat tells a tale. Take the fox hat. It tells us that she has no gay friends. Such a pretty girl. Such a shame.

  4. Awww, everyone is picking on the fox - but did you notice the feathers? They look like a drawing from a Dr. Seus book!

    Personally, I love both of the pink hats!

    Thanks for sharing pics.


  5. Oooh, yes - the black and white one please!

  6. yes, that coat really is the bees knees!

  7. Love hats and especially the pink ones.
