A black and white post as an ode to Derby Day.

I’m a proud Sydneysider- always have been and always will- but come Spring Carnival season I feel like those Melbournites get all the fun…yes I know we get to go to the races too! Perhaps I’m just jealous they get a public holiday…
Either way it’s not going to stop me playing around with some traditional monochrome for a Derby Day look. 
There’s no need to win big at the races to fund your wardrobe (‘cos I sure didn’t!), and nor does getting dolled up need to be uncomfortable. Opt for a lower heel on account of all the standing around (and many champers). An up-do lets you show off that fascinator but also equals a tidy finish no matter the weather. And the best part about a monochrome dress? They’re on trend all year round. Huh, I feel better about losing those bets already!
