Go to a Fancy Hat Shop This February

Kentucky has a long, proud tradition of hat-wearing. It's practically a requirement if you're going to the Derby, but there are lots of other reasons to wear a hat. They've become a popular wedding item, they look great at formal spring and summer events and come on! You don't need an excuse to wear a fancy hat. You also don't need an excuse to visit a fancy hat shop. Head to Forme Millinery Company this February and start planning ahead. Because one day, Churchill Downs will be filled with people again.

At the Hat Shop

Forme Millinery Company is owned by a master milliner and this shop is full of incredible fashions and stunning hat designs. You can have a hat custom-made here, choosing everything from the colors to the materials to the little extras you want to see. The shop's owner is the official milliner of the Kentucky Derby Museum. The permanent hat display at Churchill Downs features her designs.

The shop is open on weekdays from noon to 6 pm at 1009 E. Main Street. That's just outside the pretty Irish Hill neighborhood, a community of colorful bungalows and historic character.

Discovering Irish Hill

Irish Hill is close to the river, close to downtown Louisville and close to the Highlands. This means this community is surrounded by the best culture, cuisine and shopping you can find anywhere. There are all sorts of great attractions within minutes of Irish Hill. But when you stay inside the neighborhood, you'll see lots of great stuff.

This neighborhood is full of historic, renovated real estate that honors great designs of the past. These pretty bungalow homes are full of great architectural elements from the past, details like hardwood floors, fireplaces and crown molding. Irish Hill homes also have cool lighting fixtures, custom cabinetry and other high-end, modern features.

Do a little shopping this February. After you pick out a hat, go pick out a new home in Irish Hill.
