A Day at The Races

Apr 11 2013

The Gidget, as we like to call it, is elegance with a tougher edge, and is reminiscent of a riding boot buckle. With summer quickly approaching, and the upcoming Triple Crown Series upon us, now seems to be the perfect time to sport an equestrian look.

The Gidget is just the ticket for incorporating the equestrian trend. We love the idea of tying the Gidget around a wide-brimmed hat with one of our square silk scarves, slipping on a cocktail dress, and heading off to a day at the races, or at least to a Derby party.

Tying the Gidget around a hat is a fresher twist to the often over-embellished Derby hat. While we love Audrey Hepburn’s black and white ensemble in My Fair Lady, and Mia Farrow’s sumptuous white outfits in the 1974 movie version of The Great Gatsby, our take on hat fashion is a bit simpler. Classic, but not too fussy—a straw fedora, embellished with a beautiful silk scarf.

But the Gidget is not only for those who love the races. If you have the cowgirl spirit, the Gidget  provides an Americana edge no matter how you style it, whether used with our bandana-inspired Alexandra scarf and a pair of blue jeans, or dressed up with a white eyelet shift paired with cowgirl boots.

The Gidget is a truly versatile piece that creates a modern, but still classic look that can be dressed up or dressed down.
