Last minute I decided that no matchy-matchy outfit of mine would be complete without a piece of custom jewellery by Lucy Luxxe... and luckily the lovely Renee had time to make me this:
Didn't she do a fabulous job getting the colours right!
I spent the night before in my hotel room painting my fingernails and toenails pink, and studying the form guide so I might look like I knew what I was talking about.
And then the big day dawned and I got to get all dolled up!!!
The whole outfit came together so well I just couldn't have asked for anything better. I felt really pretty all day and got a lot of compliments. One of the bookies wanted to know how long it took me to find a necklace that matched so well - I told him not long at all - I had it custom made! It helps to know the right people!
Here is a close up so you can see just how well the necklace co-ordinated
I couldn't decide which horse to back, so I went with a box trifecta of the top four favourite horses. Basically if any of them came in first, second and third in any order I won!
I just noticed that the ticket says welcome to Grafton Races at the top.
I was not at Grafton Races...... weird!
But none of them did!!!
Actually, that was pretty much how the day went. I was there with five friends and none of us backed a single winner all day!!! Very disappointing.
Here is one last photo of me and my lovely husband:
Somehow we managed to co-ordinate our outfits without trying... thats true love right there.
All in all I had a fabulous day and I loved my outfit - total success!
And a reminder, for fabulous jewellery custom made, go see Lucy Luxxe, and for the most divine fascinators, Bobbie at Madly Hatted Millinery is your girl.
