It’s that special time of year again when women wear excessively adorned hats and everyone gets drunk on mint juleps and throws money at running horses. We love some southern charm here at FashionIndie, making us big fans of the Kentucky Derby. As the event approaches this Saturday, May 5, we’re thinking of party-appropriate outfits and accessories for this very fashionable tradition. Here are nine of our favorite horse race-ready pieces to prepare you no matter where you’ll be when the Kentucky Derby celebrates its 138th year.

I stole my first pair of platforms from the Spice Bus in 1997 when Anglophilia was all the rage. Collector of vintage bags, vinyl and kitchen appliances. My dream of becoming a butcher is momentarily on hiatus so I can teach you how to wear muumuus and apply false eyelashes. Follow me on Twitter @CrystlMeatballs.
