Preakness at the Piazza | The Fashion Event of the Season

There's nothing I'm looking forward to more than warmer weather and the chance to strut around in floral sundresses. Luckily that opportunity is coming a little earlier this year. In just three short days, Preakness at the Piazza will be returning for its second year for an evening of friends, fun, and, of course, fashion.

Not sure what Preakness at the Piazza is? It's an amazing charity event where guests get to dress in their very best derby attire and socialize while watching the 139th Preakness Stakes horse race on the big screen at the Piazza at Schmidt's. In addition to the viewing party, this year there will also be a fashion competition that all guests can participate in! Categories include Best Dressed Male, Best Dressed Female, Best Dressed Couple, Best Shoes, and Best Hat. That's right, I said hat. A huge part of the fun is the huge derby-style hats that the women get to wear and the awesome bow ties that the men rock. The fashion at this event is nothing short of creative, so you definitely have to bring your A-game!

All proceeds of Preakness at the Piazza will go towards the National Multiple Sclerosis Society which provides resources to victims of the disease and funds research to "stop MS in its tracks." Last year, almost $100,000 was raised and I'm beyond excited to help increase that number this year. If you'll be in Philadelphia on Saturday, May 17th and are interested in attending, tickets are going fast so buy them here today!

For more information and event updates, make sure to visit the event website and follow Preakness at the Piazza on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.

See you on Saturday in your derby best!
