It's monsooning outside my office windows, but my mind is dreaming of beautiful hats.
Why? Because tomorrow is the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.
While I know almost nothing about horse races, I do know that this is one of the only occassions where Americans religiously break out our faniciest headgear.
Fascinators! Top hats! Wide-brimmed Pretty Woman style chapeaus!
Take a spin through the photo gallery above with me and leave your weather woes behind.
And if you are lucky enought to be headed to a Derby party in the Tampa Bay area, send a photo of your hat to @DealDivas on Twitter. We love to live vicariously.
