Racy frocks

I have the ultimate white, self-indulged, first world problem. I'm going to my first race day of the Sydney Carnival tomorrow and I don't have a new frock. Tragic, I know.

I do, in fact, have a cupboard full of race frocks, so won't be going nude. It's just the first carnival in ages that I haven't splashed out on a new frock (or two). Keep in mind that the only time I tend to splash out on clothes is for the races, so a couple of frocks a year isn't too extravagant. This year, though, there's a lot of other stuff going on and it seems a little silly to buy a new dress.

If I was going to buy a new outfit I think I should like something like this:

Or this:

Or this:

Or perhaps this for Derby Day:

All these dresses are from my favourite racewear designer Thu Nguyen who owns a boutique near my home (and where I've spent plenty of cash). Her gorgeous dresses are vintage inspired and often made from the most gorgeous silk. If you have a race day or wedding, I'd recommend checking out Elise Silk 
(and keep my secret local thriving).

Have a fantastic weekend, whatever you're doing (especially if you're at the races). If you're in NSW, don't forget to vote and enjoy the sausage sizzle. See you on the flipside.

  2. Fab dress selections there... I especially like 2 and 3!
    Races is an AWESOME day. I love the dressing up, champers, excitement of having a little flutter AND of course, hanging out with the girlies. I haven't done a race day for YEARS and I live up the road from Randwick racecourse. It's a sin! Have fun Corinne :o)
    P.S. We're away for the weekend, so already voted... no lining up tomorrow, Yippee!
