Caulfield Cup 2014 | Track Style

As Admire Rakti crossed the finish line at the Caulfield Cup this past weekend, I was keeping an eye out for people who were in fine form beside the racecourse. The hunt for the best or – even better – the most interesting modern racewear was on around style hotspots

Style Spy | Caulfield Cup Day | 2013

With such glorious Spring weather it’s apt that my Caulfield Cup Day seemed touched by a theme of ‘the birds and the bees’. The birds were on a 50’s-inspired sparrow print dress and the bees make an appearance as I buzzed around (a beeline if you will) the racetrack from

On track for the Caulfield Cup Carnival

According to The Olsen Hotel the key to a preparative race-day breakfast is French pastries, fruit and sparkling wine. In a penthouse setting. I’m not inclined to disagree (perhaps jockeys should steer clear). This weekend’s Caulfield Cup preview day saw us set out from the boutique hotel to the track

Countdown to the Caulfield Cup Spring Racing Carnival 2013

Roses and equines and hats; oh my! At their gala launch, the Melbourne Racing Club recently announced the talented and down-to-earth (as well as beautiful – darn her) Erika Heynatz as their style ambassador for Caulfield‘s 2013 Spring Racing Carnival. It’s a safe bet that she will wear the role  –

Caulfield Whitehouse Institute of Design Award 2012

Caulfield’s Design Award is a chance for designers to showcase their ultimate racewear outfit. Whether the looks they produce are a modern interpretation of trackside-appropriate attire or a classic one.

2012 Caulfield Cup Style

There’s not many things we dress up properly for anymore, either due to lack of caring or lack of time, This is especially so in Australia with our (wonderful) egalitarian values. Weddings are perhaps the exception? Even so the ‘formal’ dresscode has been diluted to ‘no jeans please’. That’s why

DressCode: Caulfield Cup 2012

There’s a silly superstition that wearing green is bad luck; something you certainly don’t want looming when it comes time for a flutter. Happily I was able to balance out this apparent bad juju by wearing a lucky symbol – an origami crane (made from real paper) by milliner Kerrie

DressCode: Caulfield Guineas Day

I posted the hint ‘Sam Sparrow’ on instagram of my outfit as I headed to Caulfield Guineas Day and a Spring Racing brunch at The Olsen’s Spoonbill yesterday. Did you guess the theme? It’s black and gold! Inspired by a sculptural blouse I found at Swoon, the rest of the

Fashion Stakes Caulfield Guineas 2012

All Too Hard won the 2012 Caulfield Guineas yesterday. But the colt’s name was certainly not an omen for the event. With the grand final of the Fashion Stakes for dapper gents, a welcome appearance of sunshine and even more welcome flutes of Pommery champagne in the marquee, the day

The Caulfield Cup Carnival is coming

I’ve got a lucky 13(!) spring racing related events to find hats and trackside-appropriate dresses for so far. So thinking about the carnival already probably isn’t too early. Caulfield Racecourse’s celebrations start next month and their hunt for two fresh faces is underway. Kelly Bannister, Kate Hopkins and Hetty Kate are
