I recently finished the Norwegian Queen's biography (it was amazing) and she always re-uses her outfits. After she's worn a dress she writes on a little card about which event it was for, and then the next time she wears it she knows which royal outing it's been to before, whether it be a birthday, a wedding or an official trip. I love this idea and think it would definitely apply to us commoners as well, because it's so important to take care of the special memories we create together.
The beautiful headband is from Sportsgirl ($16.95), the peacock belt was bought at the markets in Bangkok, the clutch is from Popbasic's Salut Collection and the Raybans were a Christmas present from way back when. The stunning necklace and bracelet on the left hand are both Zodiac Collection from Samantha Wills (I'm Pisces). On the right hand is my usual white Hermes & Cecilie Melli bracelet which were very special gifts from very special people. I love wearing this combo because it reminds me of them.
Because I knew that I would be standing on grass for most of the day, and the races are never kind to ones feet, I decided to wear my trusty Wittner boots. I also paired them with zigzag stockings so that I wouldn't get cold when the sun went down. The trick worked and I didn't need to take my shoes off like so many other ladies who wore new shoes to the races with 5-inch stiletto heels, and I also didn't get cold.
cleanse at the moment), it ended up being quite a lucrative day.
What did you do this weekend? Do you believe in the Zodiac? Policy on re-using dresses?
