I’ve lived in Gloucestershire for most of my life and have never been to the Cheltenham Races for Gold Cup Week! And now it’s finally time for me to go on Ladies day of all days!! Yippee! Up until this weekend though I was having a mad panic over what to wear! I was adamant I didn’t want to spend a fortune on a whole load of clothes that I may not wear again and my priority was to buy a nice coat which will last me a good few years. On top of that there is the added pressure of the hat. Everyone knows that ladies day is all about the hats! So here’s my outfit of choice, the only things I purchase now was the coat and some feathers, everything else was already knocking about in my wardrobe and waiting to be worn.
- Dress: Topshop
- Necklace: M&S
- Shoes: Faith
- Hat: Next
- Feathers: Amazon
- Coat: FCUK
- Faux fur stole: Spell & The Gypsy @ http://www.revolveclothing.com
For the hat, I purchased some feathers from Amazon, and wound some wire around the base to hold them all together. The brooch is an old brooch that previously belonged to my Nana, I threaded the pin through the wire and then through the felt band around the hat, and hey presto I had a cute little feather and glitz feature!
The coat was my big expense for this outfit, but like I said I wanted to invest in something that was classic and would last me a good few years. And now is definitely the time to be looking, with stores switching over to their SS15 stock all of the winter coats are hitting the sale rails! So go and grab yourself a bargain. My French Connection coat was reduced from £190 to £95! And I can definitely see it being a firm favourite!
