- Before we dive into a Rookie's guide for Spring Racing, a few little notes here and there on our ASOS campaign we shot back in July in London (see here)...
- IS FINALLY LIVE! HERE.
- Pretty damn exciting stuff, and also really really weird seeing my own face on the ASOS website every time I hop on? Haha
- This is also my first year of the Races so I've learnt a lot about the "bird cage"s, how the whole day kinda flows and also a whole lot of people watching and observing.
Rookie's guide on Spring Racing.
- Always make sure you're wearing something that's weather convenient. It just so happens that the two weekends we attended in Sydney, both Saturdays were low temperatures and madly windy - meaning lots of hair in the eyes, mouth and general face region.. oh and a lot of short flowy dresses, aka hello undies and nips.
- My best bet is to go with a low bun or pony tail.
- If you're going to wear heels, commit, and make sure they're comfortable. There's nothing worse then leaving the venue barefoot. Here are a few of my favourites SHOES; here, here and here.
- For men; remember to wear a tie! If you're heading in the tents or rooms - the dress code includes a tie. If you forget, you can purchase a cobalt blue satin tie for $15. We learnt it the hard way.
- It's a long day, so my favourite beauty knack are face spritzin & hydrating the lips. Keeping it lush and fresh is a yes way.. See my getting ready post over here: ELLE | Get ready with me
- For the bag.. something compact and enough to hold the essentials; phone, credit card, a lipstick & bandaids.
- I'm not a massive fan of the fascinator, some people just get it so right and some people just get it so wrong. I tend to stick to a more minimal approach because I'm pretty fiddly when it comes to head pieces, and also don't have the patience - so fresh flowers, head bands or even hair ties are a great alternative.
