I wore this dress with what I can only describe as horse ribbons on it to a recent trip to Philadelphia.  And I did not even realize until half through the day (and 3 beers in) that it was the day of the Kentucky Derby.  Maybe if I had  listened to that voice mail from my grandmother a little earlier I would have realized that my dress choice was genius.  My grandmother left me a voice mail asking if I wanted to place any bets.  Yep, we're an awesome family.

And (of course) this dress is another find from Instagram (via @kitschcatvintage).  I've always coveted this dress, but didn't purchase it from Anthro because sometimes it's more important to pay the rent than have a horse ribbon dress.  And then prices on eBay were insane.  So, when I found this dress via my new shopping addiction, I had to snatch it up.  I got this dress plus a floral Betsy Johnson dress for half of what this dress actually cost in stores.
