Derby Day Digs

3 May

This Saturday marks the best day of the year to be a Kentuckian…The Kentucky Derby is upon us!  And while, we unfortunately cannot make it this year, we will still be watching the Run for the Roses from over 6,000 miles away (albeit at 4AM).

Clearly the main focus at Churchill Downs this Saturday will be the paddock full of fine-looking thoroughbreds – but let us not forget the very close runner-up – Derby Day FASHION.  The search for the perfect Derby Day chapeau takes weeks…well months really.  But the fact that I won’t be there in person hasn’t stopped me from scouring the runways for ideas for the perfect Derby Hat.  Among the many traditional options, I also found some rather outlandish looks for those wanting to make a statement.

For the Traditionalist

For the Vintage Lover

For the Attention Seeker

For the Bigger is Better!

Happy Derby Day Everyone!

Nascar in China

13 Sep

Not so fast Nascar fans(pun intended).  While Formula 1 has a large audience here, the more American styles of car racing have a long way to go.  A recent event hosted by P1.cn (the chinese equivalent to Facebook except you have to be invited) proved that unlike in America, a racing event in China (with over a billion more people than the US mind you) cannot pull in 100,000+ screaming (okay…often drunk) fans and cause traffic jams for miles.  The fact the we were allowed to chill inside the flag box says a lot, but the picture of the empty stands below says it best.

We really did have such a great time though – 100,000 other fans or not.  Our friends Moya and David (who invited us) were a blast as always.  Plus, there was a VIP room with food, free drinks, and most importantly air conditioning to get a break from the Beijing heat.  And, as you will see below – we had fun playing in P1’s photo booths!

Morgan Hutchinson and Moya Li. Do you like how we both dressed for a racing event?
