Doncaster Races…What I Wore

It’s not often I get chance to get ‘dolled up’ but a day at the races is a rather fab excuse to glam it up. I’d had a few weeks notice and spent most of it looking for a new outfit. I don’t really do posh frocks and hate the idea of buying an expensive dress that I’m never going to wear again so when I saw this one in the sale at Asos, I immediately clicked on ‘Add to basket’.

Dress

I usually stick to very plain, boring (but slimming) black but as they didn’t do this one in black, I braved it and ordered the white. It’s an Arrogant Cat dress which happens to be one of my favourite labels and was reduced from £75.00 to £52.00.

Unfortunately, being a good few years older and at least couple of sizes larger, I don’t look anything like the model in it but was quite pleased with my choice.

The shoes are by Jaspar Conran and were also in the sale, this time at Debenhams…

With an old beaded handbag that I already had and a pair of Wildfox sunnies (wishful thinking), my outfit was complete…

Luckily, my daughter Naomi was on hand to style my hair, which I’d decided I wanted in Victory Rolls to give the whole thing a vintage vibe (although I got told I looked like a Geisha girl – definitely not the look I was aiming for!!!)

I had intended taking photos before I set off but in my usual ‘Lizzy Late’ style, I was heading out the door at the last minute. These photos were taken at the end of the day after a few hours gambling and too many Jack Daniels! Thankfully, Naomi had used lots of grips and hairspray.

I know I don’t often do outfit posts but I am considering doing a few ‘What I wore for work’ style posts. Watch this space…
