Friday Fancies: Decked out for the Derby!

My sister Mary absolutely loves fashion...and the Kentucky Derby! So today, she's guest posting three different looks for her Friday Fancies, Derby Edition:


I like to think of the Kentucky Derby as the American version of the Royal Wedding. The best part is that it happens every year! The Derby is great because while everyone has the opportunity to pull out all the stops,they are still able to stay true to their own personal style but picking that perfect hat! I created three different looks, one being more romantic, one more classic, and one minimal style.

I must say, I'm in love with the all black option! It's so classic and the pop of red (courtesy of Chanel... of course!) adds the perfect luxe touch.

I love the movement on the blue dress and I think the nude heels are super cool as well!

While I'm not a huge minimalist, I love the soft pink hat! It almost looks like a flying saucer, which is cool... right?

Thanks to Sue for letting me guest post today! Have a wonderful Derby Day!
-Mary

Isn't she hysterical? I mean flying saucer? Who comes up with that stuff! A big thanks to my little sister Mary for guest posting today! So will you be watching the Derby? I love the fast pace and the names for all the horses. Aside from watching the Derby, I have absolutely nothing planned, except a fun girls night in with my sisters tonight, can't wait!


Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I have to say that I'm loving the all black option! Really pretty, and the red bag is a nice touch!
    Susan, I would have to agree that I also enjoy the names for the horses, mostly because they're perfect for story/poem ideas! :^)
    Go Mary for putting together these stunning picks! :^D
