Paspaley Polo in the City

Ahhh the polo season is almost upon us. Get your espadrilles and sun-dresses ready. It’s like a cross between the Spring Racing Carnival (sans the rabble) and a visit to your local yacht club (of course you have one of those), with a little festival atmosphere mixed in. To me there is

Christmas Polo 2011

All I want for Xmas is a pony. And a mansion. I’ve been such a good girl this year. I can have both – albeit temporarily (possessions are fleeting)  – at the 2011 Christmas Polo. Amid the grounds of historic Werribee Mansion at K Road, Werribee, three games of polo will play

Portsea Polo 2011

It seem we can’t get enough of floaty summer dresses, espadrilles, polo shirts and ponies! The Stella Artois Portsea Polo tournament is returning to its sophisticated seaside locale on Saturday January 8th 2011, from 10.30am to 6pm. Enjoy three games of world class polo, the iconic divot stomp (yes, we all imagine we’re in

Polo in The City

The Paspaley Polo in the City will be held this Saturday the 4th December at Albert Park from 11am to 5.30pm. The face of Ralph Lauren, international polo player Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Figueras, will be on the field and the Sony Foundation (who raise funds for youth battling cancer) is an official

2010 Christmas Polo at Werribee Mansion

Remember how feeling warm mud squelching through your tiny toes was a simple childhood pleasure? It turns out not much changes, even when you are meant to be a “grown up” or a sophisticated socialite. A torrential, unyielding downpour turned yesterday’s Christmas Polo at Werribee Mansion into a lawn more suited to

Portsea Polo 2010

Another year of polo at Portsea again saw a sell out event. The Point Nepean Quarantine Station sees a flood of stylish types at this time of year as they enjoy one of the – in my opinion – best events during Melbourne’s summer. I think the crowd looked as

2009 Myer Christmas Polo

I tend to think the Polo is on the verge of blowing up to be wildly popular as the Spring Races have done in prior years. It has a similar atmosphere but marches to a more casual, refined beat. The Myer Christmas Polo is on again on Saturday 28th November

February International Polo 2009 at Werribee

My introduction to the world of Polo was during a sweltering Saturday (a record-breaker) that made me eternally thankful for the cooling hospitality of peach bellinis and the blessed shade of the Kookai Chukka Club. I heard much of the usual public crowd had intelligently stayed at home however the

Stella Artois Portsea Polo 2009

The Portsea Polo, now the greatest polo event in the country spectator-wise, has quickly become a sell out, must-do social event in its own right. Since its resurrection in 2004, and a brief hiatus last year due to horse flu, the event has cemented itself on Melbourne’s summer social calender

On vacation…

Taking (attempting to) a little time to rejuvenate mind and body this month. StyleMelbourne will properly return to share the beautiful side of Melbourne’s culture, lifestyle and creative people in February 2015. Until then there may be the odd post on the Portsea polo, a re-vamped sky-scraping events space, the
