Cottonelle Kentucky Derby: May the Best Horse (or Hat) Win! | Thriftanista in the City


Cottonelle Kentucky Derby: May the Best Horse (or Hat) Win!

Many thanks to Cottonelle for sponsoring today's post, and keeping my bum clean!

Now that I've over shared, let's move on to a more fun topic. I find Kentucky Derby fashion really interesting. The matchy-matchy colors, big hats, and white gloves are right up my fashion alley *swoon*.

Pretty Woman was on the other night. I saw outfits in the derby scene (just say no to bandage dresses with thigh high stockings) that I would wear today. Trends recycle and so do I!

If I were at the Kentucky Derby I would wear a fascinator* because my head hair is too big for most hats. I would let my big flashy headpiece take front and center. Naturally I would have to match it to something and it would be my awesome magenta pumps. I'd rock them with a white dress for a clean, fresh and matchy look.

let's talk about your bum #sp #letstalkbums

Cottonelle at the Races

I'd also wear my confidence because it really is the best accessory you can have at the Derby and everyday. Staying fresh and clean throughout the day builds on that confidence.

Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper and Fresh Care flushable cleansing cloths are designed to work together for that fresh feeling that matches your outer appearance. The cleansing cloths feature SafeFlush Technology, so they not only offer you a confident clean but also start to break down immediately after flushing.

Cottonelle will be at the races and not just keeping bums clean.

The Clean Room in the Green Room

Major events call for celebrity red carpet appearances, right? Before the celebs hit the red carpet, they will mingle and relax in the green room. Cottonelle will be on-hand in what they’re dubbing the “Clean Room” with refreshments, a hair and makeup touch-up/refresh station plus an opportunity to chat with Cherry for a sneak peek in side the Derby segment that will appear on daytime talk show, "Bethenny."

Terrance Bathroom

Between day drinking and betting, inevitably there will be a trip or two to the bathroom. Cottonelle is upgrading the bathroom experience by providing Cottonelle TP and flushable cleansing cloths across the bathrooms giving attendees the opportunity to stay clean and fresh while at the race.

That fascinator looks great on your Troy! I like your choice of shoes as well. I dream of wearing one someday especially when the horse race season starts or when I stumble upon a copy of Hello UK magazine. Living in Sacramento, it will most likely not going to happen but who knows? I might be invited to a costume party with a derby theme and get to wear a cool hat or fascinator.

P.S. Have you added your blog to the "I’m a Miss/Mrs Looking Good Blog Directory"? Pls. visit my blog and add your URL, it's in one of my menus. Thanks!
