Sometimes playing dress-up is more fun than the real thing. Even better, playing dress-up online -- because you don't have to put away, fold and hang clothes after trying them on -- is pretty awesome. We have a few more days until the Kentucky Derby. Get excited and start your preparations.
Whether you're actually going or just watching it on the tube, have some fun and "Derby Yourself" on the iVillage Facebook page. (Check out mine above.) If I was going to the Kentucky Derby, I'd wear a sleek red dress that can be easily transitioned from day to night. (You know, for all of the Kentucky Derby after-parties.) And what goes better with red? A black and white striped hat of course -- give me the biggest brim you can find! And of course I couldn't go to the Kentucky Derby (in the virtual sense) without my (cyber) martini with a cherry on top, which consequently also matches my Kentucky Derby dress.
After you've Derby'd yourself, don't forget to enter the sweeps! You'll have a chance to win a wardrobe, plus accessories from Vineyard Vines' all new Kentucky Derby collection. Their stuff is so "weekend" and so cute!
