Blue Diamond Stakes Day is a favourite race day amongst my group of friends, as it’s the last big event of Summer racing. It was sadly also a farewell for one of our best friend’s who is moving interstate.
Being a Summer race day, whites and soft florals were definitely a hit around the track with bright pops of colour. I opted for a statement sleeve off the shoulder dress for a bit of fun paired a vintage pearl headband my mum made 30 years ago and gold heels.

A long weekend and the chance to go on an adventure with my Mum to another city, was a definite yes from me! The second state final in the Myer Fashions On The Field Competition was to be held at Hobart Cup and it has always been place I have wanted to visit.
As soon as the competition date was announced, my Mum and I started planning an outfit. Yellow has been the colour of the season along with layering and lace detailing trends, so we wanted to create an outfit that could incorporate all these elements. Continue reading

After missing Caulfield Guineas last weekend, I couldn’t wait head to BMW Caulfield Cup Day with my very chic girl friend, Bonnie. Caulfield Cup Day has always been a favourite event of mine, as I’ve had so many amazing memories there – from my first ever Fashions On The Field Competition, way too much fun in the Young Members and Pegasus marquees and my biggest Fashions On The Field win in 2014.

Spring is officially here! Last night some of Australia’s biggest faces in modelling came together to launch the David Jones Spring / Summer 2016 collection. Jesinta Campbell, Gemma Ward, Jessica Gomes and Montana Cox all graced the runway showing off the latest collections from some of my favourite Aussie designers; Ellery, Romance Was Born, Zimmermann and Ginger & Smart.
Bright, bold prints took center stage with flirty lace and bellowing sleeve detailing also featuring heavily. Pastels seem to be the ‘it’ palette this season and our favourite reliable friend, monochrome is back again. Continue reading

The sun was finally shining in Melbourne and what better way to spend a Saturday than a day at the races. After missing most of Winter carnival, my friends Jill Humphries, Bree Laughlin and I all dressed up and headed to Caulfield Racecourse for lunch in the Members Dining room. Continue reading

Recently I was having coffee with a girlfriend, chatting all things fashion and my upcoming FOTF competitions when she pointed out that most people know what to expect from my outfits. It was actually pretty true!
I love to block – whether it is colour or prints. I can’t get enough of it and I feel I have had some pretty good luck with this concept over the years. It did get me thinking though, I should try something new and push myself creatively. Continue reading

The racing hair do is fast becoming more important and sometimes the difference in a winning look. It is the final element to an outfit, that most people don’t consider until the day of the event, but can stand you ahead of the pack and complete the look you’ve worked so hard to create. Continue reading

In terms of race wear, the word relaxed is quite foreign to me. When I go to the races, I like to go all out with big millinery and a statement dress so for me relaxed race wear was a bit of fun and a challenge. Continue reading

This seasons new emerging trend is black on black – I know, as Anna Wintour would say, ‘Flowers for Spring, how revolutionary’. Black on Black really isn’t anything new, especially if you are from Melbourne, however it’s not a look we often see at the races.
Myer were the first to showcase this look back in August at the Spring/Summer Launch and it had my girlfriends and I talking. I don’t often wear black to the races, as it’s my time to shy away from my day to day blacks and go all out in colour but I couldn’t wait to put an outfit together.
