Strictly black and white, today is Derby Day in Melbourne.
I write this jet-lagged from a hotel in Hong Kong, where my flight schedule sadly hasn't afforded me the opportunity to return to Melbourne in time to celebrate this always fashionable event.
To me, races is all about keeping true to your style, but with that little extra something. I'm beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to have teamed up with my favourite, The Outnet, and to share with you my Derby Day fashion.
It's all about classic shillouetes, with a modern twist.
Not normally a body-con fan, this Hervé Léger had definitely changed my stance - the scallop detailing and mini-length is the perfect statement white ensemble for the brave, and this Simone Rocha ball gown, truly is what dreams are made of.
With such statement fashion, I've opted for more subdued head-wear. This Lady of Leisure lace crown adds the perfect touch of elegance, and an embellished hair pin from my friends at Fiel Sol, along with a little netting creates a more dramatic look.
Given that I will be only celebrating Derby Day in spirit only, I think I definitely have the perfect opportunity to whip out one of these looks for Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, which I definitely will be in town to celebrate.
Which look is your favourite?
