It’s a fashion challenge like no other, rocking a Derby hat without a couture dress. Is it even possible, you ask? Can a lady top off her dressy look with a stunner that seems more like a piece of art than a hat and pair it with something she found on a discount? More importantly, can she buy one for cheap?
A million times yes, and here’s how.
