Five Gold Cup Dresses Even an Intern Can Afford

You spent your meager savings on a ticket to Gold Cup so that you could enjoy an authentic D.C. experience.  You’ll be eating PB&J this week to cover your share of the rental car, and you would like to have enough money left over for a cocktail or two.  So you need to get your Gold Cup dress for a song.  

No problem.  Here are five dresses that are perfect for the green that won’t have you seeing red.

Private Collection Dot Dress (eDressMe, $45)

Polka dots are the ultimate in polo couture, just ask Julia Roberts.

Height of Summer Dress (Anthropologie, $98)

Bright, punchy and perfect with a pair of gold sandals and sunglasses.

Skye Ruffle Front Dress (Piperlime, $85)

White and lacy, this dress is pretty not racy.  I hate it when I accidentally rhyme.

Madras Halter (Old Navy, $30)

Pair this halter with a short-sleeved cardigan and a simple sandal for a simple, preppy look.

BCBGeneration Ruffle Front Dress (Zappos, $88)

This flirty dress has a muted palette that imparts a bit of sophistication.

    I think that Old Navy dress is confused. It’s an apron in denial. In my opinion, almost any one of the day dresses at Urban Outfitters would be a better choice for the Gold Cup and still budget friendly. Though they are not exactly preppy, many of them can be accessorized to become so.

    I will be celebrating the Kentucky Derby from a distance…in Denver, CO. Do you have any suggestions for colder weather?
