Talk Derby to Me


orry, I know the title of this post is pretty overdone, but hey, it’s better than “Hold Your Horses!” Right?

Derby weekend is finally here, where it’s more than acceptable to wear oversized hats, gamble, and consume endless amounts of Mint Juleps. The Kentucky Derby is all about tradition, so whether you’re attending one of Saturday’s big events {Polo on the Lawn / Run for the Roses} or throwing a classy little soiree with friends, here are some ideas for celebrating “The Run for the Roses” in style.
