my derby dream

with derby less than a month away, the time is here to begin putting my outfit together.  not only is it necessary to have a back up outfit (rain? bloating? snow? incredibly high temps? surprise millionaires row seats? sudden house party? infield? grand stand? the possibilities are endless) but both need to be top notch material from head to toe.
derby is an all out affair, and if you can't handle the price or extraordinary attention to detail, ya better stay at home and bet on your ole pc instead of hittin the betting windows at churchill downs. 
living in louisville for 23 of my 24 years (born in detroit, some say i shouldn't claim it as my own but clearly, it gives me more street cred so i represent) derby is always a must and i've been there in rain or shine, infield and paddock, derby hat or my high school days of a wife beater and jean skirt in the mud wrestlin center of the infield, rain boots or sky high heels, they've all seen the race track.
so here's what you've all been waiting for... the derby outfit de kentucky blonde.
this hat... but clearly those little balls would be coral.  who doesn't love coral balls?
i would need this dress.
Jimmy Choo 
and some amazing jimmy choo private patent leather sandals, must have.
with the hat, its only necessary to rock the side pony tail, seen here on the ever so lovely carrie underwood.  while we're on the subject of carrie, i might as well add i'll also be rocking the same make up and earrings, and body, and voice, and dance moves, and "walk this way" version with magenta extensions... am i getting carried away?  {pun intended}

so there ya have it... my dream derby outfit at the price of approximately $1700 ... told ya, no short cuts round here for the first saturday of may.

do you approve?
