Fashion Friday & Friday's Fancies - Decked out for the Derby!

By Hpranitis @_thisandthat_
WOOHOO, it's finally Friday!  I have waited all week to shout this out!  Yay, so glad it's here.
Thank goodness.  I am so ready for the weekend to begin.  I anticipate a little "me" time this weekend and I am so very much hoping that my writer's block just slips away...  Positive thoughts for a full day of writing on Sunday. 
At some point this weekend I will be heading to the movies.  Hmm, any ideas of what I will be seeing...? None other than The Avengers!  Sadly, I won't be seeing it with a really good friend of my mine, Bill.  However, his wife and my bestie, Brenna, will begrudgingly be going in my place.  I know she'll enjoy the movie because of the eye candy, wink wink.  Right?  Right. 
Tomorrow, I have a short event for Blondie's Shop.  I say short because it's 10am to 3pm, whereas the last 2 events were over 8 hours each, a very long day indeed.  So, be thinking positive thoughts for the shop!  I'm on a mission to spread the word about my note cards + invites + announcements.
Today's the day.  My favorite day of the week, Fashion Friday and Friday's Fancies.  We have a fabulous theme courtesy of Alison over at {long distance loving}, Decked out for the Derby!  Obviously, in honor of the Kentucky Derby tomorrow.
My pick to with the Kentucky Derby is Liaison for the win.  It's 50-1 odds but, I'm going with my choice anyway.  And Liaison is such a beautiful horse don't you think?  *Fingers crossed* on my pick!  Since I like a good wager...who is your pick for the win tomorrow?
Alrighty then, let's move on to the snazzy little number I'm wearing to the Kentucky Derby.  I was aiming for the 3 "C's"...chic, comfortable, colorful...  And I think I nailed it?  You tell me.
I chose a simple orange Balenciaga dress.  Remember I've been working on stepping outside of the "neutral" girl box by adding more color.  Baby steps.  I did however, stay true to my neutral girl ways and choose neutral coordinating accessories.  Because of course, I needed to leave room for the fabulous derby hat!  Actually, I chose a fascinator and it's super comfortable and lightweight because it's a headband well, sort of.  You get the jest, right?  Makeup: my standard smokey eye with a lashes.  The lip will neutral with a hint of sparkle.  See, I just can't get away from the neutral look.  Slowly but, surely I will feel absolutely comfortable stepping outside that box.
Ladies, have a fabulous Friday and don't forget to participate in the linky parties.  You can visit my good friend, Kori over at Blonde Episodes for Fashion Friday or Alison over at {long distance loving} for Friday's Fancies - Decked out for the Derby!
