|The Kentucky Derby!|
If you read my food blog today, then you know I’m obsessed with the Derby and have been daydreaming about going ever since I learned that hats and over-the-top, take-a-2nd-look toppers take center stage. What the what?? Hats galore! Yes, please. Over and over again.
Oh, and you hopefully sipped — virtually — the mint julep I made.
But, since I’m still not positioned to afford the real ticket I want for this years race, now in its 138th season, I will just watch — again– in amazement and drool over the fashions.
These celebs, probably having no knowledge or interest in the actual race, have graced Churchill Grounds in years past, rocking these ensembles — some fabulous, some disastrous — a la Princess Eugenie at her cousin’s Royal Wedding last spring.
When I DO go, I’m trusting that I’ll have a hat commissioned by non other than Philip Treacy — the master of the most fabulous, decadent and fanciful hat. Because I’d attend in no other fashion 🙂 I’ll just budget that into the pocket-burning expenses involved with frolicking among the Who’s Who!
If a dream maker were to visit me with a last minute ticket, leaving me no time to shop, I’d probably wear this one, originally shared here with a lovely vintage yellow lace and eyelet dress I’ve yet to wear.
What do you think!?! Isn’t it just pure lush! Drool.
Happy weekend, sassy friends! xo.
