Hi ya’ll! My name is Daphne and
I will be your tour guide for the “It’s Derby Time” exhibit.
I am on my way in to get dressed. I brought my hat with me. It is a D'Mari Original so I didn't leave it here after rehearsal yesterday.
That’s me last year. Isn’t that the biggest wreath you have ever seen?
I had a lil “situation” (tug of war) regarding the Byron Lars dress I wanted to wear – You know I won.
The dress is slammin’!
Am I right or am I riiight?
The Kentucky Derby is known almost as much for the fashions at the track as for the horse racing – especially the hats!
They wear all shapes and sizes from supersized
To the delicate fascinator to the
The lady in red.
This my favorite one of all!
Am I am vogueing or walking like a Egyptian?
The day before the Kentucky Derby is the Kentucky Oaks. At the Oaks all the horses are fillies (girls). Ride on ladies!
And as you can see here the theme color is pink!
What is more fascinating me or my fascinator? It's a tie!
Oh so vogue in the designer marabou hat!
And oh the parties and galas!
Fundraising is the focus but the fashions are exquisite!
The theme of this gala was flowers.
Carissa is divine as Water Lily so appropriate her muse was the Princess and the Frog.
Zora is working it as The Rose.
Nikki chose the Iris, she and the dress are blooming.
See ya'll next year!
