The 76th running of the Iroquois Steeplechase


Nashville, TN has many timeless traditions and it is deeply rich in southern history. The Iroquois Steeplechase is just one of many “must attends” if you have the pleasure of calling middle Tennessee your hometown. I’ve been attending The Steeplechase for years now & I grew up going to the races, but this is by far “old hat” to me! As a matter of fact…HAT’s what we are going to talk about… HATS! Oh, the gorgeous hats & fashion…from the women AND men! I always look forward to people watching & admiring the fabulous fashion and one of a kind couture hats! I could talk about the hundred and one ways to have fun at the Steeplechase…from the infield & tailgate parties to the the hunt club or even the food…but no, that’s for another time…this post is ALL about the fashion.

With the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown coming up next week…I wanted to give you dolls some ideas on what to wear if you’re attending The Belmont or going to a viewing party! Hats & fascinators are a must!

Here are some of my favorite styles from Steeplechase! Starting with my own 😉 Scroll down to SHOP THE POST! xo

About me

Welcome Dahlings, I’m so happy you’ve taken the time to drop by my circus. I started this blog because I hope to inspire my fellow dahls with tips on how to be happy, healthy & fabulous! There will be fashion, beauty & travel tips from years in the entertainment industry. Everything from planning a party to trying to get pregnant…you’ll find it right here! We’ll talk about my “letter to God” to find my soul-mate, getting married in just 6 months, moving across the country from Nashville, Tennessee to Orange County, California and combining our country-coastal lifestyles together. I come from a big Italian family so there will be food & lots of it! I’ll share my Dahlicious recipes I learned how to make while being a contestant on MasterChef…and some family recipes that I will most likely be disowned for sharing ;) Please leave me any questions, comments or concerns…I really appreciate all your sweet support! I’m looking forward to getting to know all my dahls & making some new friends!
