Stylish Highlights From Polo In The City

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Remember that scene in Pretty Woman, where Vivian gets frocked up and attends the polo on the arm of the dreamy Edward Lewis? Well I lived that dream last weekend, with a few obvious exceptions (lady of the night profession and sans one Richard Gere). Check out my highlights from Polo In The City below.

Polo In The City

Wearing Review Heirloom Floral Dress.

My first time attending the Polo In The City, was celebrated in the most stylish way, with my sister and I being dolled up by Review. With a love of florals, we both choose garments with dreamy, blooming prints, otherwise perfect for the Spring affair. Sophie wore the Best Kept Secret Dress, a garment so fitting for the sweetest garden soiree, which featured a flirty A-line silhouette with lace fagoted seam detailing. I on the other hand, wore the Heirloom Floral Dress, which spoke 50’s chic with the sheer neckline, organza overlay and ruffled trim.

Due to the balmy weather, a crisp pour was essential, including a round of Aperol Spritz, which took me back to my recent European summer. The view of the clear blue skies and endless greenery of Dorrington Park from the Champagne Pommery Marquee, made a picturesque setting for the polo match, which highlighted supreme athletes styled in sophisticated sportswear. Honestly, if playing polo invites such a chic uniform, then where do I sign up?

St Frock Folklore Maxi Dress, August + Delilah Shoalhaven Hat, Karmme Desert Blush Clutch, Les Georgettes Customised Bangle, Wittner Heels (similar style here).

If there was ever a colour to make my heart race, then I’m sure it comes as no surprise, it’s blush pink. There’s something so remarkably feminine about this soft, peachy colour and for someone that throws pink in her porcelain skin tone, it’s a complimentary hue. Seeing this gorgeous St Frock garment, I fell instantly in love with the native floral print, along with the dreamy, free flowing silhouette, adorned with ruffle detail and a soft tie neck. This piece has been on high rotation since entering the TBS wardrobe, best teamed with the matching band of the August + Delilah boater, another staple available to St Frock.

One of my favourite little jewellery finds, comes from the beautiful French designer, Les Georgettes, which specialises in versatile, customised pieces. Here, you will see me wearing a beautiful creation, featuring a rose gold, giraffe casing, contrasted by a double sided cream leather and sparkle textured band. I can’t explain just how special it is to wear something customised around your very own little vision.

My look is completed with the final rosy detail, seen in my Karmme clutch. Exclusive to the Desert Tales collection, this hand crafted piece features an intricate wild bloom print, embossed in a supple blush leather, inspired by the adventures of the outback.

eShakti Bow Tie Polka Dot Burnout Organza Dress, Marilyn Van Den Berg Millinery, Wittner Heels (similar style here), Spanish Earrings (similar style here).

An exciting delivery arrived at The Blonde Silhouette HQ recently; a glam garment of sorts that awaited the perfect opportunity for its first debut. In the carefully wrapped parcel sat a beautiful, delicate frock, constructed from a playful, polka dot, organza fabric. It spoke a sophisticated high neckline and a voluminous A-line skirt, with a little too much sass. I was instantly reminded of the sheer timelessness and glamour of Audrey Hepburn and knew that this dress called for suitable accessories that too spoke elegance and femininity.

Just like Miss Hepburn, I favoured a statement hat, with a brim that most would envy, from none other than Marilyn Van Den Berg Millinery. Jewellery was kept simple and chic, highlighting a pair of Spanish earrings, brought back as a gift from my parent’s recent trip to Barcelona. As for heels, I opted for a Mary-Jane style pump, demure for the ultimate day at the races.

Are you as smitten with this old-school Hollywood glamour as I am? Leave me a love note in the comments below! x

Review Wish Upon A Star Dress, Olga Berg Lana Two Tone Headband, Les Georgettes Bracelet, Molten Store Enigmatic Ways Earrings, Sachi Heels (similar style here).

With Melbourne Cup just a mere week away, I’m putting together the final sparkle for my Fashion On The Field #OOTD (otherwise, my Melbourne Cup outfit). Fittingly, sparkle is what I’m channelling this year, having found the most delightfully astral frock from new season Review.

The most eye catching detail of this dress is the starry tulle overlay that contrasts against the midnight navy hue of the frock. Highlighting an ethereal aura, this stellar number reminds me of french romanticism, combining spirituality, nature and colour in the most magical ways. With flourishes of detail, I’m particularly drawn to the sweetheart neckline, further complimented by an elegant sheer overlay. I also love the silhouette created by the ruching of the fabric seen at the waist.

Having deliberated on the choice between fascinator or hat, I instead opted for a satin headband, the trending headwear of the moment. Equipped with a handmade lace fan, fresh from my travels to Venice, I am ready for warm temperatures trackside, all the while remaining sophisticated and stylish.

Ladies, if you are still on the lookout for the perfect Melbourne Cup outfit, then why not sneak a peek at Review’s newest arrivals. I’de love to see some #ReviewGirls at the races. Des bisous!
