Gearing up for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup celebrations and this year I’m placing all my money on white…and I mean this in a strictly fashion sense of course.
In the last few years, my racewear routine has paid tribute to some striking colours and pastel combinations, from cotton candy pink to lemon sorbet, I wear colour proudly and matched perfectly from my headpiece to my stilettos. This year however, I’m going classic, with my Fashions on the Field ensemble highlighting elegance seen in a crisp white colour palette.
Almost as if we were magically destined to be together, this Quirky Circus quilted dress arrived on my doorstep, begging for a fancy occasion to be worn to. Simple in structure with clean lines and a fitted, feminine silhouette, this little frock goes a long way in terms of styling, with monochrome, metallic and neon offering potential accessory partners. With a new found adoration for warm coral tones and a statement pump, I’ve teamed this white feature with my Scarletto’s Preston Heel. After all, what is spring without a touch of pastel?
Tying in with the soft pink accents, I’m keeping my jewellery consistent by introducing rose gold metals, seen in a detailed Swarovski drop earring and a delicate watch from Fossil. With minimal jewellery, I’m placing the emphasis on my headpiece, which is also white and multi textured, highlighting a little glamour with a lace and feather arrangement. Just call me the new-age Audrey and I will answer!
Replacing the race track with the waterfront, Erin Smith Photography and I swapped champagne for Italian gelato and betting for girly gossip- perhaps not a very traditional setting for a Melbourne Cup celebration, but definitely an enjoyable spring afternoon!
