Fashion Highlights: The 2012 Kentucky Derby


This past weekend was all about The 183rd Kentucky Derby! From the looks of the photos that have been popping up on fashion blogs and celebrity sites, we’d bet a million bucks that we’d fit right in with the mint julep sippin’, horse lovin’, crazy hat wearin’ crowds of gamblers, celebrities and racetrack aficionados.
