Once again, big thank you to Moonee Valley Racing Club for allowing me to use your beautiful racecourse for my first shoot.
Derby Day is the start of the four day race days that make The Melbourne Cup Carnival. I unfortunately can’t attend this year as I am moving into our new home, but to all you ladies who are attending and need some outfit inspiration from a amateur fashion blogger, (moi) you have come to the right place.
Derby Day has a pretty strict dress code of Black and White. If you’re in need of a little colour then add a bright shoe or lipstick shade to give your #ootd a little pop. Voila … my Derby Day look.
Dress: I found this amazing dress at Zara in NYC for under $50 and knew it would be perfect for Derby Day. This dress just reminds me of something I would see on the Chanel runway.
Fascinator: My fascinator was custom made a few years back by Melbourne milliner Zorza for around $200. I was inspired by Victoria Beckham’s headpiece she wore to Kate & Wills’ wedding.
Shoes: I picked them up in LA from Call It Spring, they are so comfy so perfect for the races.
Earrings: I’m wearing (forgive me father!) this pair in red from my collection, shop here.
Hair & Makeup: Just did it myself … hehe #glam
I can’t wait to see all your beautiful outfits from the comfort of my Instagram feed and hope you back a winner.
Photographer: Bianca Lamont. I love you girl!
