The Art in Hats event returns very soon and here are couple of stylish entrants, the Ascot hat from Eleseren Brianna and a hat you can literally eat from Oddfish Studios!  Ascot made me think of one of my three favourite musicals, My Fair Lady (the other two are West Side Story and Funny Face if you’re interested!), and in particular the scene where Eliza goes to the opening day of the Ascot races.  If I’m going to the races then I need a stylish dress and they don’t come much more stylish than this gorgeous offering from Kaithleen’s!  Just to show how gorgeous it is I’ve put in an extra bonus picture below!!

Every duke and earl and peer is here.
Everyone who should be here is here.
What a smashing, positively dashing spectacle ~
The Ascot opening day!

At the gate are all the horses
Waiting for the cue to fly away.
What a gripping, absolutely ripping moment
At the Ascot opening day!

Pulses rushing, faces flushing,
Heartbeats speed up,
I have never been so keyed up.
Any second now they’ll begin to run.
Hark! a bell is ringing,
They are springing forward.
Look, it has begun!

What a frenzied moment that was!
Didn’t they maintain an exhausting pace?
‘Twas a thrilling, absolutely chilling running of
The Ascot opening race

(from “My Fair Lady” by Lerner and Loewe)
