Salty & Sour Derby Inspiration — Bailey Wynn
“I celebrate Derby each year by making a stop at my best friend’s family home for their annual Derby event. It is definitely a Derby tradition in the Pautsch household, along with attending Oaks each year with friends, drinking mint juleps, and dressing up for the occasion.” — Bailey Wynn, Manager of Lashtastic and owner of Bloomed Roots
Wear a Hat Opening Night
The signature accessory for Opening Night at Churchill Downs on September 19 is an evening headpiece, whether it’s a fascinator, feathers, a hat, a headband, or something else! It is a Dress to Impress occasion — so besides the hat, what do you wear?
According to Churchill Downs, women are encouraged to wear party and cocktail dresses and men are encouraged to wear sharp pants and a dress shirt; a tie is optional. Also because Churchill Downs is partnering with Fund for the Arts, you can incorporate the color orange for the evening in the spirit of creativity and encouragement.
