Derby Dress a Day: For the Turf Club

Hey high rollers, you going to the turf club? Today I’ve got something for you but only for those ready to make a statement.

If you’re not familiar, the Turf Club is an exclusive, indoor/outdoor area of the track. The space includes a dining room, bar areas, your own betting windows and some prime balcony space. Those attending the Kentucky Derby in the Turf Club can expect to rub shoulders with celebrities and a local who’s who. (Got an extra ticket? Take me!) You won’t have to worry about finding a seat, so I say go for a great heel. You’ll also have a table to lay your things down on so you don’t need to worry about a cross-body or bigger bag.

Today’s dress is a bright bold Mara Hoffman number. It’s not for the shrinking violet but why not go big and stand out from the mass of pastels and florals that you’re sure to encounter (not hating, love me some pastels and florals). To finish this off, I’d top it with a fascinator in a matching blue or play off the touch of turquoise in the print.

I’m seriously hoping I bump in to someone sporting this number. If so, expect a big high-five. You’ve been warned.
