Derby Chic

Hello Everyone!

I had such an amazing time this past week at the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Garden Party! This was my very first year attending and there was so much to enjoy! There was amazing food from Wolfgang Puck Catering, beautiful contemporary sculptures to adore, music by DJ Lucy Wrubel, and rose-gold champagne to sip. The show stopper for the night was a beautiful Stanley Korshak fashion show featuring stunning gowns!

The attire was “Derby Chic” and honestly, I did feel a little bit under-dressed at this party since some people were wearing gorgeous gowns and intricate Derby hats. I went for an overall “classic vintage” look so I stuck with black for my color palette. I played up my look with lace, diamonds, and of course, red lipstick! The overall look was very simple but elegant and the lower cut lace front of the dress was something different that I’ve never tried before. I was actually able to thrift my dress so I’m not sure what brand it is! I tend to get very lucky with thrift shopping so I find various deals and this dress was only $12! The hat I wore was really large but comfortable but the evening was a little bit hotter than I intended. I can’t wait until next year to fully plan out an outfit and maybe opt for lighter blush colors! I think I’ve been way too excited for fall lately so I’m quickly rushing into the darker tones in my closet haha. Unfortunately, it got dark very quickly so we didn’t get to take many pictures!
