DressCode: Oaks Day 2012

Thanks to Lana Del Rey I tend to think floral crowns are a bit overexposed at the moment. Yet when I spied Leah from Fashion Journal at a lunch recently wearing a version flipped back it stuck me that the smallest changes can make something fresh again. Such is fashion! Milliner Kerrie Stanley – always up for experimenting – offered to fashion a flipped crown based on the lovely painted floral print of my chosen Oaks Day dress. She whipped this headpiece up the night before in between making hats for Andrej Pejic. How pretty would a miniature version be for the polo, a wedding or a summer festival? Ms. Stanley can make them in any colour combination you wish. I’m not usually a fan of loose hair for the races, yet I think it goes with the flower child vibe happening. I snapped these outfit photos as the sun sunk on the day (note my shoes are well and truly kicked off by then).
