Dress the Derby in Tees, Jeans, and Aprons

Posted By on Mon, Jul 12, 2010 at 11:35 AM

Last Friday, I headed to VINI for the Dress the Derby fashion show with the Dirty Printmakers of America.

They had some really cute designs. Unfortunately, I spent my last $5 on a (pink!) plastic cup of beer so I didn't get to buy a t-shirt. Merp. (I was woefully unprepared for the weekend. Something about writing a serious cover story this week or something.)

In addition to the cute tees, the derby girls modeled Thigh High jeans, crazy/awesome knitted hat/ponchos/masks/merkins, and the most darling little aprons from FlyingHearts.

Clements also makes "corset corsages," wristlets that lace up the back like a corset.
