The Melbourne cup is just around the corner and I have pulled together the elements of my upcoming outfit as a way of planning and mentally organising what I will be wearing.
This cup season is all about the metal or lace headpieces (similar to the Samantha Wills headpieces below) – everything from lace cat ears to metal/coral shaped headbands and crowns are in… Despite being in tune with the very obvious current fascinator trend I will opt for a boater hat for the Melbourne Cup so as not to get lost in a sea of metal crown fascinators.
This look is eclectic mix of vintage style glamour tied together with feminine charm. I have opted for chunky RMK mule heels as they are really comfortable and will ensure I will stay upright for the entire Melbourne Cup day and after party. I will also wear a black and white vintage style skirt (similar to the one pictures) from Sportsgirl teamed with a SABA singlet and add in some Samantha Wills jewellery to complete my look.
Below are some photos from last years Spring Racing season in which i attended the Caulfield Cup, Derby Day and the Melbourne Cup. I was lucky enough to have full access to the Birdcage including the Johnny Walker, Swisse, Lavazza, Schwepps and Emirates marquees.
