The 2013 JeepMagic Millions Race day….(Woo hoo!) Is A fantastic reason to get dressed up. I love the races and watching the fashions on the field even more so. 😉 I have been putting my outfit together over the last few weeks in preparation. I was in H&M at the post christmas sales and picked this tailored fitted dress up for… Wait for it… $15 ! Yes, you heard me right!! 😀
This dress is perfect for the races because bright colors are a must and the knee length is perfect. Race wear tends to be a little more conservative and lady like. I’m going for a candy coloured theme with a pastel coloured belt I picked up from Forever New and multicolored bracelets. I love big colorful hats and fascinators but tomorow I’m going to keep it simple with this big cream flower. 🙂
Sechy’s Race day tips …
1) Go bright and bold with pops of colour and find a way to make your outfit stand out. This is the one day where you can be as flamboyant as you choose too!
2) If you are thinking about entering Fashions on the field, Keep the dress or skirt around knee length. Mini dresses have no chance so save them for the beach or nightclubs. Racing fashion is all about bringing glamour.
3) Wear sun cream . It doesn’t take long to burn when watching your favorite horse race by. I got so burnt last year.
4) Slow and steady on the bubbles. The heat and sun combined with champagne can spell disaster. Every race day without fail I must see a gazillion girls passed out flat on their faces, skirts up around their waists with invisible tape stuck on their armpit and a shoe lying next to their face. Classy huh 🙂
Here are some pictures of previous fashions on the field winners for inspiration.
