WIW: Preakness at the Piazza

This past weekend was Preakness at the Piazza – benefiting the MS Society. Guys and gals showed up to The Piazza in Philly wearing bow ties and brims to eat, drink and dance the night away. I was one of the style ambassadors for the event – you may have seen my pre-Preakness post about an outfit option. I ended up wearing a blue suit with a patterned bow tie and pink pocket square. To stay with the Preakness theme, Craiger Drake accessorized me in a pair of horse cufflinks. They were the talk of the night -or at least in my world since I kept telling everyone about them! The event raised over 100K for the MS Society. WOWSA.

Preakness at the Piazza

This year’s Preakness at the Piazza is just around the corner on May 17th! I was asked to be one of the style ambassadors and modeled a gray linen suit from Les Richards during a photo shoot with Suni Silvan. Do you like the pics?! We shot in the Azalea Garden behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The suit is from Tallia. I love Tallia’s orange mannequin ad campaigns almost as much as I love the fit of the suit! Since the event is derby themed, I added a printed bow tie to keep with the Preakness style.

If  you’re attending Preakness at the Piazza, be sure to wear a bow tie! (or a wide brimmed hat for the ladies).

Proceeds from the event benefit the MS Society. Get dressed up for a night of dancing and socializing with friends while raising money for a great cause? Count. me. in!
