For Breeder's Cup 2014 Friday races. Got picture taken by A.P. and featured in USA Today online!
My original dress that got ruined was a strappy purple Herve. I chose purple and yellow dresses as those are the colors of the flowers of the blankets of the winning racehorses. While this dress had pink in it, it was still a wonderful dress for Friday's more casual race day. It must have been enough of an attention getter as an Associated Press photographer captured a candid photo of me and it appeared in a Breeder's Cup online article by USA Today.
Loved the necklace that the stylist had provided to go with. It picked up the colors of the dress and fascinator without being overbearing...great choice for a strapless dress. I wore a VS Bombshell "Add-Two Cups" bra as I have no boobs. With the bra's generous padding, I was able to just fill out the top of the bodice. Herve's run small and you best have no flab, because Spanx wouldn't help. I couldn't even wear a thong. The dress was an XS and let me tell you, I had to get my dad to wrangle the zipper up, which was extremely difficult. It was so tight at first, I could barely breathe on the car ride over to the racetrack. Upon arrival, the dress formed to by body and fit like a glove/wetsuit/second skin. For a banana shaped white-girl (32A-24-32), I have a J.Lo booty (37" around), so I got some double takes and a few whistles. This dress is not for self-conscious people.
I worship Herve Leger dresses and would never hesitate to rent one!
