Fancy Finds: Derby Me Fancy

I'm happy to announce a fantastic new contributor to the blog: Natalie of Fashion I Fancy. Natalie's column, FANCY FINDS, will include fashion and shopping ideas that you're sure to love...

It's time to pull out those big hats and bright dresses for one of the fanciest sporting events of the year, the Kentucky Derby, or the "Run for the Roses," taking place this weekend.

While you may not be attending the actual Kentucky Derby, it's likely you're attending some sort of Derby themed party, where getting dressed to the nines and sipping on cocktails all day is a "must." Who doesn't love that? And let's be honest, who doesn't love a gent in a three piece
suit?! That's reason enough to dress to impress :) With all the bright colors and bold prints out right now, you're sure to find something fabulous to wear. But, if you're struggling for
inspiration, here are a few Derby themed pieces to help you out! Enjoy!

1) Topshop Dress 2) Pour La Victoire Wedge Pumps 3) Alice + Olivia Floral Dress 4) Zara heeled sandal 5) H&M Straw Hat 6) Max and Chloe Pearls 7) Loeffler Randall Pumps

  2. Natalie,
    Love the hat and necklace!

  3. Nice collection. My style statement would be Topshop dress, H&M straw hat and Zara heeled sandal. A simple chain with a pearl drop would complete my look.

  4. Really classic and chic style dresses and accessories. I especially liked the blue colored dress and straw hat combination. I checked for the wedges in the link provided. They seem to have few nice collections. I hardly shop for shoes online mainly because of size problem. But I think now I should give it a try. I liked their sand color so much. It is a neutral shade so it can go with any type of dresses. I am a footwear fetish and like collecting sandals of all types and shapes. I normally do shop hopping but I think it’s high time I switch over to online shopping of shoes.
