Every year Frederica Academy hosts a derby party on Sea Island to help support the local school. Over the past 15 years, this soiree has grown into a a fabulous event filled with raffles, silent auctions, mint juleps, a hat contest, and of course, a showing of the Kentucky Derby. No party would be complete without fabulous food and creative cocktails. They even host a band for an after party to celebrate the end of the race! Needless to say, every year I’m on a hunt for the perfect party dress for this special occasion.
If you’re like me and either headed to the Kentucky Derby or planning to attend a Derby Day party, then I have the perfect dress for you! J.McLauglin has a playful lined silk dress that is designed just for the derby. The fit and flare cut is not only comfortable, but also very flattering. Needless to say, the bright and bold spring colors coupled with the pattern make this the ultimate ‘Day at the Races’ theme dress. This dress is only available in stores, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call their phone number 844-532-JMcL (5625). You can’t go wrong with this dress, but be ready because it may be the talk of the party!
In case you can’t tell from the pics, I absolutely adored working with the Buddy the horse at the Frederica Stables for this photoshoot. I wish every Lavin Label story involved Buddy since we both had such a wonderful time! Here’s to hoping your derby celebration is as much fun as our photoshoot was!
