Events & Shopping: All Things Derby

Apr 17, 2012

Derby fever is beginning to set in around town and as such, my email has been flooded with all kinds of Derby shopping events, trunk shows, fashion shows, deals, etc. While I wish I could go to all of them, my wallet and my schedule (boo for that whole having to work thing) don’t allow for that. Hopefully some of you will be able to attend some of these amazing Derby shopping opportunities. There’s a little something for everyone in the list below (even guys!).

If you have something you’d like to add to this list, just drop me a line at danielle @ OR post it in the comments (I love me some comments) and I’ll update accordingly.

    I think I will be making the rounds this week and attending a few events from places that invited me to come 🙂 I may use it all for one big shopping entry this weekend…But I won’t be able to do all of the shopping along with it or I will be broke :-/. I hope to see you at one! We keep missing each other. LOL
