This week I will be attending a Kentucky Derby themed party, so naturally, I had to begin looking for the fashion accessory that’s most associated with the women who attend the event – the big, fancy, hat. The extravagant hat tradition dates back to 1711 when Queen Anne enforced a strict dress code which mandated the public wear hats in her presence. Years later, headwear still remains a staple at the event, and steals more attention than the races. Below are some of the hats I think would be perfect for the special occasion.

Get Glamorous Anti-Chafing Thigh Bands

A few weeks ago I attended an event where I was introduced to Bandelettes, a brand that produces thigh bands to relieve all of the uncomfortable problems of inner thigh chafing that many women encounter when wearing skirts and dresses.

What is chafing? It’s the irritation skin may experience due to the repetitive friction from a specific area, such as the thighs, rubbing together. Bandelettes prevents this problem, with an exclusive trademarked and patented design that features non-slip silicon on the underside of elastic lace that lightly wraps thighs and stays in place. The result: no more redness and soreness and the elimination of messy powders or lotions. Moreover, the garment is not just functional, but aesthetically pleasing, as the 6-inch long chic lace can provide a sexy peek-a-book look to rev up any outfit.

Developed by Rena Abramoff and Julia Abasova, the product is available in 4 different shades for $14.99 each. Get one now»
