I enjoy designing and making many of my own outfits, but I enjoy even more the thrill of finding that bargain dress or skirt that I can enhance with some creative DIY. I never feel bad attacking these pieces as I didn’t pay an arm and a leg for them.
I try to come up with a concept that is a little more unique and will stand out in the crowd. There is nothing worse than rocking up to a racecourse, feeling amazing and finding someone else wearing your exact same outfit. Your heart sinks.
To eliminate this stress, consider adding a detailed collar, attach an embellished necklace or broach, add a cape or even get your needle and thread out and start beading! Even inexperienced sewers can create something unique.

Finding a new racing outfit can be hard. We often find ourselves searching boutiques and online stores, but we so often forget whats already at home, hidden in the back of the wardrobe. I’m sure you have some hidden gems if you rummage.. I sure did!

Although I live in black, white and grey in my day to day life, my racing alter ego is all about colour.. and the more the better! I’m not talking a Carmen Miranda lookalike wearing a dozen different colours, I try to keep to my 3 colour rule – as seen in my Do’s and Don’ts post.
This season its all about pastels paired back with bold, bright colours. Whether its in a floral print, geometric, stripe or solid two tone look, theres a combination for everyone. What colours will you pick?
Be inspired by these looks

Finding the right racing outfit isn’t easy, let me tell you I’ve had my fair share of fails! From my mums vintage ruffle top (think the Seinfield pirate shirt) to a short dress with cape back.. Its safe to say I learnt the do’s and don’ts pretty quickly after attempting my second racing event. Here are some helpful hints that I learnt along the way.
