Zoobilation Fashion

The Indianapolis Zoo hosts an epic charity event every summer called Zoobilation. It’s the largest black tie function in the state! Start looking for the perfect dress NOW. The race weekend will hit and then it’ll be time for zoobilation!



Zoobilation is the hottest event of summer. If you’re looking for tickets, you can try stubhub or entering local contests. This event sells out within minutes of the ticket release in February. Got your tickets? GREAT! You will get to indulge in bites and drinks from 70 different restaurants in Indy. Uh, sign me up please!This year’s theme is tropical adventure. I’m all about a good themed party, especially one with a wonderful purpose. 

Lilly Pulitzer

Indy Zoobilation


Oh don’t mind me just drooling over these Lilly Pulitzer Maxi dresses! How perfect are these for Zoobilation? I’m a die hard Lilly gal. I wore a two piece “crop” set to a wedding recently, but it has long sleeves so I’d totally need something more weather appropriate, right?? Shop these looks here




Loving these two floral dresses from the local boutique, Raelynns! Animal Print and Floral apparel are encouraged!


Black, white and sexy snake skin all over! Those shoes are to die for, and the dress is 50% off right now!! Shop here!


Fly away into fashion heaven with this dress! I’m about to plan my own party just to have a reason to wear this. This is so perfect for zoobilation! This one is under $70 too! Shop here.

Rent the Runway

Rent the Runway is absolutely perfect for black tie events, weddings, parties, going to brunch… I mean.. what? But really, RTR was my first choice on where to look. How beautiful is the DVF butterfly dress? I also cannot get over how insane the third dress is. The birds are incredible! Dress availability will vary with your size and location of delivery, so get over to their website quickly!



Maybe prints and florals are a bit much for you? No problem! Nothing wrong with a black dress! Sparkle the night away in these two dresses. The dress on the right is Vince Camuto.. I love everything Vince! Shop Here.


Now this is a sexy little leopard print number! This dress calls for some strappy sexy heels. Shop here


I can’t lie.. I typically frown upon not wearing a long dress to a black tie event. Given that Zoobilation takes place outdoors, I think I could make an exception for the right dress, and the pink and green one is too cute!! Shop here.


Anyone else totally loving the palms trend as of lately? Target has a fabulous home line with tons of palm options right now. I’ve been looking for more dresses to add to my collection and these both fit the tropical theme! Shop here

Kate Spade

I can always count on Kate Spade to have the most adorable whimsical bags and accessories. This spring collection is amazing! I actually picked up the camel ring and I’m beyond obsessed with it. If you’re going with a dress that does not have a print on it.. consider spicing things up with a fun purse or shoes!

This one isn’t available anymore… and OH how I could kick myself for not purchasing it. Reminder: You can always buy and return something if you change your mind… but if you don’t buy it… it might not be there tomorrow!

I put this together in consideration for the Indy Zoobilation Street Team! I would love the opportunity to cover Indy’s hottest summer event. Pick me pick me! 😉

That’s it for today! Have you picked out your Zoobilation gown yet? Don’t forget to schedule your air-tan appointment while in planning mode as well!
