Yesterday Olympia and I ventured off to Flemington Race Course for the last race of the season: Emirates Stakes Day.
Olympia and I were invited into the Crown Marquee, and spent our entire day there.
It was a lovely marquee, filled with a buzzing atmosphere. The food was great, and the people were friendly.
I could not help but admire the marquee’s floral arrangements, that used a pastel colour scheme. It was gorgeous and clearly well thought about.
My favourite part about the day, was dressing up – of course.
I wore a white Alex Perry ‘Lea’ dress.
For those of you that have followed Frenchy for a while now, you will know that I wore a red Alex Perry gown to my high school graduation. What I love most about Alex Perry, is how well he structures his dresses. I find that both of the Alex Perry dresses I own fit in all of the right places. They accentuate curves, but still create an overall flattering silhouette.
I accessorised my outfit with a Miu Miu headband from someone that I truly treasure with all of my heart. In terms of jewellery, I wore pearl studs, and a Lisa Ho diamante bracelet (that I wore to my debutante ball).
I wore a light pink Coach bag with a silver chain, to tie in the silver from my headband and bracelet.
For shoes, I wore nude coloured Christian Louboutin pumps. I wear these to many functions as they are the comfiest pair of heels that I own.
I had my hair done by Sharnee, who went for a half-up/half-down type of style, inspired by the hairstyle I wore when I dressed up as Ariana Grande. I had hair extensions put in to add length and thickness to my natural hair, and these were curled.
I had my makeup done by Sharnee, who also did my hair. As the races are held during the day, we opted for a very natural makeup look, going a little heavier on the eyes than my lips (to balance things out). The eyeshadow used was predominantly of earthy colours. In addition to this, I had winged eyeliner, and a few eyelash extensions glued in.
For my lips, I wore a simple light pink colour, which tied in with the look I was going for.
As you may have noticed, I had a tan done for the races. Usually I do not get instant tans, but as I was wearing a white dress, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try one out. I got it done at a local beauty salon, and I was quite happy with the result.
I can honestly say that both Olympia and I had the best day. A big thank you to Crown Resorts for having us.
