If you’re a keen racegoer, Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival can be an expensive time of year. So I thought, why not just buy one dress, and then using the beauty bundle concept, change it up so you feel like you’re wearing a completely different outfit each time, still on theme.
I’ve chosen a simple offwhite dress by Phase 8 (available at David Jones) and show how easily the whole outfit looks and feels more different just by changing up a few accessories.
Dress code: Black and White
Derby Day 2016 Weather Forecast: 7 – 25C mostly sunny
First thing you may be a little chilly, so a lightweight shrug is a good way to keep the chill off until the sun warms up.
