Run for the Roses 2022

Vivian is already being asked if she is creating a new hat for Hattingdon to wear for the 2022 Kentucky Derby. “I need to get cracking if I am,” she says.

She may be in good shape though. There are two hats Vivian created, one in 2012 and another in 2017, that Hattingdon has not yet worn for the Kentucky Derby. There is also a “classic hat” featuring red roses. Just for fun, let’s take a look at them.

First we have the Susanna picture hat of 2012, not made for the Derby but she could wear it — especially if it was warm and sunny.

Here is the star of all Hattingdon Kentucky Derby hats — the Jenny Rose, created in 2010.

Then we have the Jenny Rose 2017 saucer hat. Hattingdon looks stunning, and very grown up . . . perhaps a bit “saucy”?

And finally the Jenny Rose “classic hat”.

What do you think? Which one should she wear in 2022? We are leaning toward the Susanna hat, weather provided. However, she could easily wear the picture hat from 2012. She last wore it 10 years ago . . . after all.

Bye for now.
