What do you do when you receive an invitation in the last minute and have no time to hit the shops? You shop in your own closet of course. This is the excuse for having a big wardrobe, according to my dear friend Jess. Although I came 2nd Runner Up at the Fashion Stakes at Caulfield last year (beginner’s luck!), I still consider myself a rookie when it comes to Racewear because I only started attending Racing events then. Head adornments are tricky! So since I had to quickly concoct an outfit befitting the occasion, I stuck to the winning formula: in my closet I called upon Roksanda Ilincic and Paula Walden again. You may recall this dramatic drapery number at a French High Tea and Paula Walden’s breathtaking headpiece here.
I went to a wedding on the weekend where the bride and groom met at the Races 3 years ago. See? Your outfit is so important, as you never know who you may meet! So what do you think of this ensemble? What will you be wearing to the Races this year?
