Default Hat Crisis..

.. ok, in the scale of things it's not strictly a crisis.. but I have a day at the races on 22nd July - and (a) I have left it incredibly late and (b) it appears that, even though I thought I lived in a place where women often dress up and 'do lunch' and attend charity/society gatherings , I can not for the life of me find somewhere that sells hats for special occasions!

I have checked (online) Bloomingdales, Macy's and have done a general search on google.. Nowt, Nadda..

Any ideas ladies? I'm not sure how many of you are on the west coast? Where is M&S and BHS when you need them

ps.. have no dress or shoes either.. They will be purchased and sneaked into the house and disguised as "oh, that old thing"...

But I like your thinking there MrEmjoy - kinda like multi-functional - loo's are always too far away.. too much alcohol is bond to be consumed.. Yeah, I'm liking that idea more and more! Few GB stickers on it to be festive - sorted

In CA, I think a sombrero might work.

I don't think the ladies here wear hats to the races..I'm only saying this because I know we had one poster that was struggling to find a hat for a wedding..

Google the race course and try to find some photo's to see what everybody else does..
