Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival has always been a favourite carnival of mine and sadly I’ve missed attending the last couple of years. This year, I decided I wasn’t going to miss another Winter carnival and needed to attend at least one race day to satisfy my need for a Fashions On The Field competition. Stradbroke Day fell on a Melbourne long weekend so my mum and I decided it was time for a mini vacation to get away from the very cold Winter down south.
Stradbroke Day has a black and white theme with a touch of red, which makes the fashion really interesting as everyone always has a very different take. Last year, the winners wore very little red so most followed this lead and only went with a red accessory as their touch. I went for the more risky option of a red velvet turban, earrings and embellishment on my dress and some more daring people went for all red with black and white touches,
