Kentucky Derby week is here, and if you are in a panic on what to wear, I have the places you should stop!
Ladies and Gents for a unique one of a kind look should always shop local! There would be no chance of another lady having your hat or fascinator if you went local. There are many shops to choose from in Louisville, Kentucky, but I have to say I am partially bias to two. One is in Southern Indiana, so yes you have to cross that big ole river!
I may not be home for the Derby this year, but I will be celebrating from Maryland, because a girl from Kentucky will forever yell for horses as they run quickly around the track. One of these years I will get my act together and throw a party! All that said for now, let’s just talk about the outfits! You are required to don your most amazing southern look, so break out the seersucker, white, hats, lily, stripes, and monograms. Match your honey, and either go to the best party in town, sit at your tv, or if you are a lucky one head on over to Churchill Downs for the running of the Roses!
If I was headed to the Derby on Saturday, I would have done my shopping for myself at Dress and Dwell in Southern Indiana, New Albany to be exact. Their fab dresses, fascinators, clutches and Jewelry is just the one stop shop any lady needs for their Derby outfit!

Then Gents please dust off that khaki or seersucker suit, and tie to match your lady, and head over to Clayton and Crume to get one of their fabulous belts! Clay of Clayton and Crume is a youth from back in my youth advisor days, and I actually baby sat he and his siblings when they were much younger!

Well that is it! Like I said I know there are million other amazing local shops to choose from, but I hope these two suggestions give you a little something to think about when shopping last minute this week for Derby! If you don’t live in Louisville, Kentucky and still want to look fabulous this saturday both these shops are online! Please go give them some love and shop for your best looks!
*these are my opinions and I was in no way swayed to provide this post, I just LOVE both these shops and wanted share them on my blog during Derby week*
