It’s no secret that I have a thing for fit and flare dresses, but when a dress has a special story behind it, it quickly becomes one of the most meaningful pieces in my wardrobe. This stunner is from Myra Jane’s Boutique, a place that quickly stole my heart because of the beautiful story behind the boutique’s name and creation. The Boutique’s owner, Anna, sadly lost her mother Myra, who was a fabulous lifelong fashionista, to breast cancer. In honor of her mother and as a way to remember her and share her love of fashion, Anna created Myra Jane’s Boutique! I could never begin to imagine what it would be like to lose my mom, so every time I hear Anna’s story it makes me tear up! Being able to honor her mother and spread the love that she passed down for fashion is so heartwarming, and I can only hope that one day I am able to honor my own mother’s memory the way Anna is honoring hers.
This dress is even more stunning in person than it is online. The colors are so vibrant! There’s even this gorgeous pattern on the fabric that words just can’t do justice- you’ll just have to look at the photos! There are super flattering pleats at the flare of the waist. These give you a little extra wiggle room and are super flattering, making it the perfect dress for Derby season!
My handbag is vintage and was passed down to me by my aunt. I love that she kept some of the pieces she wore when she was my age in such beautiful and pristine condition. The handbags that she has passed down to me from her collection are so special to me, not because they are beautiful and unique, but because they are like a piece of her and her life and now have become a part of mine.
To make my look a little extra appropriate for a day at the races, I’m also wearing this super affordable (12$) and gorgeous fascinator I picked up from Versona. If you’re in Lexington and need a fascinator on the fly, I highly recommend a stop at this place!
