A special thank you to channel 44 for having myself and local stylist, Herbert Brumfield on the morning show this week! It was so much fun talking about Kentucky Derby fashion! Herbert and I went to Dillard's and found 3 lovely outfits for different age groups. And, keep in mind...instead of larger hats that cover your face, you can also try a Fascinator. This small headpiece has grown in popularity over the past few years. Click on the link to watch the full interview. 44news.wevv.com/trending-derby-looks/
