friday's fancies: preakness

No francophile friday this week - I decided to participate in this week's friday's fancies organized by {long distance loving}.

I am going to Preakness this weekend. It is supposed to rain so, since I am in the infield, I will probably be battling the mud in jeans and Sperry's. But hey, there will be unlimited beer so it shouldn't be that bad. However, if I was in one of the fancier sections, and money was no object, this is what I would wear. I took inspiration from Maryland's state flower, the black eyed susan.

{dress - $188; fascinator - $80; bangle - $175; clutch - $1380; pumps - $85}

What would you wear to the horse race?

  1. Have so much fun! My friend goes every year. When it comes to horse races, I don't think it matters as much whats on your body than whats on your head - any fabulous hat and you'll fit in just fine.
