That’s of course the way it goes though, right? I know when we get back it’s going to be all derby everything so I am trying to get as much stuff done in advance to prepare. Shooting a bunch of stuff today and I have a ton that I’ve already shot that I just need to get on here. Also, Derby Dress of the Day is coming back officially this week AND I will be unveiling the nominees of the Louisville Favorites. Can’t wait to narrow those down for the final vote.
But today, I’m excited to share these pics from my shoot last week with Dress & Dwell and Xtreme Transportation. They asked me to tag along for their Derby shoot and I happily obliged. Granted, it was about 40 degrees during this shoot but if you pretend it’s warm you start to forget that you can’t feel your toes… Sike, that’s a lie. It took me all day to warm back up. I’m thinking that since it’s staying cold so long, it just means that it will be super hot on Derby. Wishful thinking but I’m sticking with it.
Anyways, this blue and green combo is even prettier in person. The Headcandi fascinator (you all know I live for all of Britni’s pieces) pairs perfectly and I am obsessed with the big feather addition. I am all about a big, bold headpiece and this one is right up my alley. One year I had her make me one with a feather so absurdly large that I poked about 10,004 people’s eyes out at Churchill Downs.
The dress fits really well and runs true to size. I am loving all of Dress & Dwell’s latest Derby dresses. So many pretty pastels, per usual, but there are lots bold colors and fun patterns. They did give me a heads up that a lot of these styles run small (and as you can tell in the photos, their models are teeny-tiny, I look like a linebacker next to them!) so I would size up unless you too are a teeny human. And don’t forget, you can always save 25% on your order with code LWW25.
