Yesterday was the big day – The Myer National Fashions On The Field final! I was so lucky to be able to experience this moment for a second time, after coming 2nd Runner Up in the 2014 Myer FOTF National final. I never thought I would get this opportunity again! Continue reading

The last day of the carnival is here and my feet are definitely happy to see my sneakers for a while after today! Emirates Stakes Day has always been a favourite of mine, as it’s a little more relaxed and it’s so cute seeing the kids running around dressed up for Junior Fashions On The Field.
After playing around in my wardrobe, I decided to go for an all white off the shoulder look with a fun colour pop of coral. I’ve had this gorgeous Felicity Northeast boater, Ellery statement sleeve top and Sophia Webster heels that I’ve been dying to wear, so today seemed like the perfect occasion.

This season is all about navy! For someone who lives in black most days, I’ve really enjoyed the change up navy has brought to my life. Finally I can justify my shopping addiction as I can wear outfits day-to-day and for racing.
Now I know what you’re thinking… Navy is a little boring!? You are wrong. When you pair it back with a pop colour, navy becomes a real statement and will stand out amongst the other dark Winter looks. I am especially loving mint, fuchsia, wine or white teamed back with navy, as these colours make the navy pop and will translate from Winter racing through to Spring.

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.

Despite the cool weather, celebrities and punters donned their best black and white for AAMI Derby Day on Saturday. To start of the day, I had the pleasure of attending the Cecconi’s Derby Day breakfast with my good friend Charlotte from Winston and Willow. This was a perfect start to the day before heading out to the track.
As a Fashions on the Field spectator this year, I had the fun task of mingling with the Myer Fashions on the Field National finalists whilst watching the first round of the Womenswear Victorian finals and the Menswear competition. Continue reading

Carnival Preview Day is definitely one of my favourite days, its the first of the festivity at Caulfield Racecourse and a great way to ease into the carnival. I started the day at my favourite salon – Heading Out Hair and Beauty in Fitzroy Street. They are the best in understanding racing hair and always create a fabulous do to compliment your headpiece.
This week we opted for a deconstructed french roll, which is classic but still a hot look this season. Stay tuned this week, for Heading Out’s top hair trends this race season, they will definitely have you sorted for the carnival.
Caulfield racing fashion has always be quite classic but with a modern twist – a look that is quite hard to achieve. Continue reading

Carrie Bradshaw pretty much sums me up ‘I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!’ Its safe to say the shoe shopping for racing is my favourite part – finally an excuse to justify my shoe addiction.

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!
