Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda: Steeplechase

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

  This past weekend Nashville celebrated their premier springtime, sporting, and social event The Steeplechase!  According to their website the event is always, "attracting the best horses and riders in America as well as the crème de la crème of Southern Society."  Check out the Iroquois Steeplechase for more info.  

Heartbreakingly, I had prior commitments and was unable to attend.  :(....  However, my number one correspondent and partner in blog was on the job!  Rachel to the rescue!  I couldn't think of putting out this week's fashion looks without including derby styling from the beloved event!  Her accounts below:

My first Steeplechase was quite the experience!  It offered a chance for friends to congregate in the fresh country air at Percy Warner Park, partake in festivities, and mingle with fellow Nashvillians.  It was clear Nashville is a fashion-minded community by all of the well-dressed participants at the event, even though we have chosen to feature only a few select fashionistas. I will definitely be attending this event next year, and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in horses, fashion, outdoor events, or mingling with friends and family.  I’m looking forward to it and am already getting ideas for my hat!! 

This dazzling darling took Steeplechase style to a whole new wowza level!!  The many details and accents of her dress can only be described as “eye candy” from her custom-made frock, to her carefully planned jewelry, to her hat with its hand-painted butterfly.  So many visual interests, there was no doubt that this gorgeous girl knew her style!

Thanks again to Rachel and Chelsea K. for their reporting work and great photos!

If you would like to check out more about this event and mark your calendars, so you don't miss out like me, here is the link again Iroquois Steeplechase.

I leave you now with a video from their website with coverage from 2012.
