Pony Up!

I pull this Ralph Lauren polka dot dress out every Spring. So reminiscent of Vivian Ward's (Julia Roberts') polo match ensemble, it's a wardrobe staple. The Allen Edmonds spectator shoes (from the mens department at Nordstrom Rack!) are actually much better for stomping divots than a pair of heels...
"Beware the steaming divot!" I can't think about polo without thinking of the iconic polo match scene from "Pretty Woman." Are you picturing it now? And that song! The Roy Orbison classic is always the soundtrack that plays in my head when I think about the "sport of kings."
Last Summer, I was honored to help organize and host a charity polo match to benefit Waldo's Muttley Crew Animal Rescue and Dress for Success Indianapolis. This year, we are cueing up the music once again with the second annual Hats, Hounds & Hooves.

I can't think of a better way to kick off a holiday weekend than with Friday night polo at sunset. If you're in the neighborhood, I'd love to see you on July 1st at the Hickory Hall Polo Club in Whitestown! Bring your lawn chairs; pack a picnic and pinot; and prepare to get up close and personal with the polo ponies for a tailgating experience like no other. At just $20 per vehicle, you can treat the whole family or a group of friends to a unique evening in an idyllic setting. 
These photos are from last year's halftime hat contest. This year, we're adding a "most patriotic" category in the spirit of the holiday weekend.
You can dress down in denim or do it up Derby dandy for this family friendly Friday night event. There's no dress code, so no need to worry whether the wrong attire will make you feel as out of place as Vivian Ward on Rodeo Drive. But, if you choose to wear a hat (and I really hope you will), you'll have the opportunity to participate in a halftime hat contest hosted by yours truly. Local celebrity judges will be on hand to award prizes for the "funniest," "fanciest," and "most patriotic" hats. If you have a well-behaved dog, feel free to bring him/her along (in a hat or not), as well. I would love to see you there!

Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!

  1. Oh yes, I can see the polo scene from the movie (it is one of my favourite movies) - I think I said once before that I love that you bring out your outfits again and again - and love wearing them. Hope this year's event is a great success.
