Styling Emirates Melbourne Cup Day.
Trackside brights was my take on Melbourne Cup Day, leaving the Derby Day’s chic black and white behind (well…almost).
My clients and good friends Lynette & Tara invited myself and my husband Liam to Lavazza’s lavish and fun marquee on Melbourne Cup Day. I thought it appropriate to get in neon theme. I test drove my latest purchase; a neon backless dress by Aqua and accessorised with heels by Tony Bianco, Morgan & Taylor fascinator @ Myer, Collette clutch and Stella Nemiro jewellery
Lynette was presenting for Channel 7 from the Lavazza marquee, so I wanted to ensure she made a bold statement. I didn’t need to look much further than a fabulous headpiece by Viktoria Novak, such an exquisite piece, that I built her entire look around it. So I put Lynette in a black and white sketch striped top by johnny, Wayne Cooper pencil skirt, Forever New neon clutch, ring by Stella Nemiro and heels by Christian Louboutin.
Tara’s small frame lends itself to most looks. So when I first laid eyes on an orange Diane Von Furstenberg dress from the AW13 collection, I knew the colour would look amaze on her. I accessorised with my favourite Viktoria Novak millinery, Sass & Bide belt, Tony Bianco gold snake heels and Peeptoe clutch and earrings.
Highlights of my day: Having fun with my husband Liam and the girls, spending time in the Lexus marquee with the beautiful Rose Byrne, running into my soon to be wed girlfriend Mietta and her fiancee Brent and meeting lovely couple Ashley and Robert. Too much fun!
