That's right Denverites, it's Denver Derby Party time!

This will be my 5th consecutive year attending the Denver Derby Party & I cannot wait! With so much hype around the Derby Party and pretty much all of Denver in attendance, you HAVE to pull out all the fashion stops.

From the tip top of your colorful derby hat down to your snazzy derby shoes, we know you'll be dressed in your best and ready to get down! #talkderbytome.

denv.her. knows of the store where you can find ALL of your Derby fashion & beauty needs. What is this one stop shop?

None other than Macy's!! #duhsies #ourfav

We never can leave you all out of the Macy's fun - head on over to our Instagram (@denv.her) to enter our Macy's gift card & Denver Derby Party ticket giveaway! The winner will be drawn and announced on Thursday, 5/3/18. Good luck and we hope to see you at the Derby dressed in your Macy's best!

Macy's has been a huge supporter of the Sean Ranch Lough-Foundation and the Denver Derby Party and we were lucky enough to partner with them last year for the event (check out our 2017 experience). All proceeds from the Denver Derby Party go towards full ride college scholarships for underprivileged students through the Sean Ranch Lough-Foundation.

We were ecstatic to get the chance to partner with Macy's again this year - just wait till you all see all their Derby products!

The Macy's at Park Meadows and the Macy's at Cherry Creek are stocked with beautiful derby dresses and derby hats - your only issue is going to be deciding which ones to buy #firstworldproblems. We certainly had our problems deciding but we can't wait to show you which dresses, hats, shoes, and accessories we chose!

Decisions, decisions...

Now if you need help outfitting for the derby (or any occasion for that matter), the Macy's at Cherry Creek and now, the Macy's at Park Meadows offer My Stylist's. Macy's My Stylists are Macy's product & fashion experts that will have you looking like Derby royalty in no time.

The new My Stylist at Park Meadows, Sally, outfitted us and was absolutely fabulous to work with.

Kimberly is still styling at the Cherry Creek location and don't hesitate to reach out to either Sally or Kimberly to get the most out of your Macy's experience:

  • Macy's Park Meadows MyStylist - Sally - (303) 566-6370
  • Macy's Cherry Creek MySylist - Kimberly - (303) 390-2200

We could not believe how many derby dresses Macy's had to choose from this year. The Macy's at Park Meadows is aggressively expanding their brand volume in 2018 and this showed in their top brand offerings and their hundreds of new dresses #derbyfashionheaven. Sally showed us around the Park Meadows store and catered our outfits to the Derby looks we were aiming for.

Hey Sally, hey! Seriously how cute is she?! #obsessed

For Treslyn's Derby outfit, she was targeting a feminine & delicate look (something with lace, lace overlay, or beading and preferably in a pastel color). I was looking for something sassy and playful (something that was either off the shoulder or had thin straps with vibrant colored patterns).

These were two of Treslyn's feminine and delicate favorites:

This Adrianna Papell intricately beaded dress was everything delicate with its silver branches and sequined floral clusters. The shape of this dress can easily flatter any figure. This dress gave us major Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby vibes!

Subtly sexy and oh so feminine, this Bardot  Botanica Lace Cutout Midi Dress paired with the Seaglass Calvin Klein One-Button Blazer is a pastel dream.

This next dress was one of my sassy favorites:

Guys this butterfly headband?!! So freaking cute, I die. 

This XSCAPE Floral-Print High-Low Dressdress was so hard not to choose - from it's playful floral pattern to alluring off-the shoulder sleeve - you'll turn heads in this sassy number. AND....IT HAS POCKETS. Always a plus.

Shop this look:

After we made the harrowing decision of which dresses we wanted (seriously it was so hard to pick, everything was so cute) - then it was time to choose our hats. The Macy's at Park Meadows and Cherry Creek have a huge selection of hats & fascinators so matching your derby look with a hair piece has never been easier (PS the onsite Macy's selection of hats is much larger than what Macy's offers online so make sure to make your way to your closest Macy's for more hat choices).

My sister and I gravitated towards fascinators this year; especially since I wore a hat last year. I wanted to switch it up!

Macy's also fixed us up with shoes and jewelry that matched our chosen outfits!

Now for the great reveal - which Derby outfits did denv.her. end up with?! But first....#lemmetakeaselfie.  Just a little Chainsmokers throwback for you lol. 

BUT, we do actually want to throw it back to last year's Macy's Derby outfit since the dress & shoes I wore are still available. I'm still obsessed with this classy derby look:
