Ruby Tuesday

Party Dress

This ruby red gown is on display at the Churchill Downs museum.  I didn't read the whole story behind it, but the dress is associated with one of the parties that are held around town, in connection with the Kentucky Derby.  And yes, it does look like large rose blossoms, after all, the Derby is the Run for The Roses.
On another note, is it just me or are the retailers rushing Christmas this year?  Lowe's and Walmart already have their artificial trees, lights and exterior displays for sale.  I don't expect the start of the Christmas season to be limited to the day after Thanksgiving any more, but some people haven't finished their back to school shopping yet and Santa is already in the garden center.
Happy Ruby Tuesday all.


  1. That's red times two. Pretty though. In a different color. Thank. You. Very. Much.

    Yes I was in a store today and there was Christmas stuff out. Do you know how hot it is in central California right now? Too hot for Christmas.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. It is a pretty dress, the roses look gorgeous. But, it is not my style. I prefer jeans or sweats. LOL! I am definitely not ready for Christmas and I am ignoring that part of the stores. Great photo, Happy Ruby Tuesday!
