Dressed for the Races

This year's Kentucky Derby viewing party at The Bell House was just as much fun as last year's (even though this year we had to pay $10 to get in to the previously-free bash. I'm on to you guys).
Anastasia of La China Loca came with more of her gorgeous hats. I didn't get one this year, but I certainly have my eye on the purple number in the front with the great big feather.

Sorry! I had to make due with my phone since the flash on my camera is still broken. Womp, womp.
My friend Rebecca and I did some square dancing (hilarious) and then cooled off with some mint juleps. I always forget how grossly sweet those things are, but you kind of have to suck it up and go.

Rebecca had a proper hat but I had to settle for flowers. Hey, if Lana Turner can get away with it, then so can I. I wore the 1950s Kay Windsor dress I wore to the last Champagne Riot and now you can get a proper look at it.

Frankly, I think these photos Rebecca took of me are more flattering than *eh hem* the one of me on the Wall Street Journal website. They even took my name, spelled it right, and asked me what I was wearing. I've been feeling famous all day.

You see, this is a dress with pockets and if I'm not careful, it bunches up a bit around the hips, hence the wee bit of chubbiness. But no matter! Here's my 15 minutes.
