The hats at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic were a sight to see! A little known fact: women in the UK do not don hats to polo matches but stateside, our affinity for hats was largely influenced by Julia Roberts’s role in Pretty Woman.
To keep with the American tradition, I dug out a hat I made a couple summers ago. I found a super cheap floppy hat and got some flowers and ribbons from the craft store. This hat cost about $15 total, but manages to look chic and not home-made, I hope.
I opted for a simpler hat, which I find remniscent of Audrey Hepburn.
Yehua needed the extra brim since her post lasik eyeballs were still quite sensitive to light.
I was walking around taking photos of my own, when a snapshot of my hat was taken for Inside New York. Yehua texted me, “Your hat is going to be on a blog!” but alas, it didn’t make the final cut.
Like the editors from Inside New York, my favorite hat was hands down the stylish mom-to-be!
Here are some other surrepitious shots I took…being a lady comes in handy when taking sneaky shots of strangers…I was being a creepster but no one was the wiser.
I paid more attention to the hats than the horses, but for all you polo fans out there, here are some action shots!
It was a last minute decision to go this time and many people had to cancel last minute, but next year I plan to have a group of decked out gals & gents! Wanna join in?
