Once a year Nashville holds our version of the Kentucky Derby called Steeplechase.
It is a social gathering of dapper gents and smartly dressed ladies in hats. The party begins at 8 am at the tracks at Iroquois near Nashville TN.
Women prepare many months prior getting just the right hat to match the dress, it is very important to look their best!
My best friend Liz is going for the first time today and asked me if I had any hats to spare. FYI I have the mother load of hats of all eras and shapes. We decided with her dress it was appropriate to wear a 1970s black floppy decorated with red and black plumes!! So much fun!
