Racing Season

Racing season is here! I love this time of year as there are so many incredible beautiful dresses, skirts and tops around.

Racing Victoria has just come out and said they will be strict this year on their dress-code. This means no midriffs, no playsuits/jumpsuits and especially no denim. As much as I love the midriff look I think it’s good they have come out and said ‘NO’ they wont be allowing guests (especially in the birdcage, nursery and members sections) entry if they disobey dress regulations.  This applies to males as well; no crazy colour suits and again no denim. You can read more about the regulations here if you want detail.

While every designer around is probably pulling their hair out having to adjust cut out dresses and no more midriff tops I think it will bring racing season back to the elegance and sophistication it has held in the past.

Caulfield Cup is this Saturday and here in Geelong we have Geelong Cup on Wednesday. It is a public holiday here in Geelong instead of getting Melbourne Cup; for most Geelong businesses. My work gets Melbourne Cup which means I may not be able to get to the Geelong Cup again this year. 🙁 I’ll see how I go, it could be last minute!

I had  look back at some of the beautiful outfits Melbourne Bloggers have worn and thought I would share some favourites. I love these Melbourne Bloggers (only a few of my favs, I do have a lot!) hopefully giving some inspiration to you.

I am hoping to get to Derby Day this year. It’s all about Black and white so looking forward to monochrome!!
