Preakness

First things first: Have you voted today? I’m competing for National Harbor’s top Style Setter spot and would so appreciate your vote! Voting closes Tuesday night so make sure you vote today! (One vote per browser per device!)

 

 

 

This past weekend, I had the privilege of attend The 142 Preakness Stakes as a guest of The Stronach Group in their Owner’s ChaletThe views were once in a lifetime and the experience was unparalleled. As a DMV native, it was definitely a weekend for the record books.

 

Having access to the infield was such an amazing experience, the views were tremendous, and the company couldn’t be beat. From potentially making eye contact with President Underwood to meeting Locash and exchanging betting tips with a few Ravens and Redskins, this opportunity was one I’ll cherish for quite awhile. It’s not every day that I get this kind of opportunity and to make sure I was fully prepared, I stopped by Rent the Runway in Georgetown to hand pick the perfect Preakness dress. The night before the race, my fascinator arrived broke to pieces but a good friend saved the day with a fascinator that could not have completed my look more perfectly. Who says you have to give up your style for derby!?
