Dressing for Ladies’ Day at the Park
Have you ever wanted to get really dressed up, complete with fancy hat, and head to the racetrack for a day of horse racing and fun?
That's what Ladies' Day at Monmouth Park is all about!
It's coming up this Saturday, part of the Haskell Weekend celebrations, sponsored by Lilly Pulitzer at the Shops at Riverside.
Last night I decided to drive up to North Jersey to check out the Shops at Riverside, and more importantly, the Lilly Pulitzer store!
First of all, let's talk about the mall. It's just off Rt. 4 in Hackensack (Bergen County) and it's insanely nice.
If you love upscale department stores and designers, this is your mall! Louis Vuitton, La Perla, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue...it's all about the high fashion!
When I got there, I went right to Lilly Pulitzer. Since they are gonna be there on Saturday, I HAVE to buy something new, right? (As if I need an excuse to shop...psh!)
I have to thank the staff there, especially manager Emilee -- everyone was super friendly from the moment I walked in! There's nothing better than that. Kathy, Dana, and Samantha helped me pick out a bunch of different dresses to try on, keeping in mind each of the 5 fancy hats I might be wearing this weekend!
Now, if you don't want to drive the hour(ish) to Hackensack, the Lilly Pulitzer ladies will be at Monmouth Park on Saturday, complete with a fashion show, fancy hat contest, and a vendor area where you can try on and buy all kinds of Lilly Pulitzer gear!
It's just going to be a really fun day, and of course, I'll be there with the Point Crew from noon-2, playing games and giving out prizes! Grab your girls, and let's get dressed up and party!
Oh, and as for the dress I bought?
What do you think? Now to decide on shoes...
