Last Saturday I courted Dejavu. We met down Memory Lane at Toni & Guy where another favourite Paula Walden headpiece was fixed onto my head. (The only downside to having a bob during the Races is that you need the professionals to help secure your fascinator or it will be gone with the wind) Dejavu grinned at me as I donned another dress by a London label. This time, instead of resembling a giant highlighter (courtesy of Roksanda Ilincic) wearing a bow, I channelled a vase from the Ming dynasty (thanks to Coast London), with butterflies on top. So I took Dejavu by the hand and headed to BECK Caulfield Guineas Day, where fine fashion, fine food and fine company awaited our return.

Of course Dejavu convinced me to enter the Chadstone Fashion Stakes again this year. Thanks to my dear friends who nearly gave me a heart-attack with their loud cheers. Although I didn’t make it to the finals, I was so humbled by their support. Guess Dejavu and I must part ways after all. I hope this ensemble has inspired you a little for your very own race outfit. Very special thank-yous to Style Counsel for having me, Cassandra for the Coast London dress, Habbot for my new favourite pumps and Paula for the heavenly head-creation. If I got a dollar every time someone asked me who made my fascinator, I would be sitting in my castle on a remote island buying everything on my wish-list from Net-a-Porter for me and my friends…



Any day is a great day when one's in the excellent company of Jess and Phoebe
