I fell in love a few times this month—there are so many beautiful pieces to shop out there right now. My shopping list is heavily influenced by what occasions and work commitments I have at a particular time and as you’ll see when you scroll below, I’m all about event dressing right now. I’ve been looking for pieces that are going to work beautifully for events, particularly all my racing commitments over the next few weeks. So if you’re heading trackside any time soon or you just want to get a head start on your Melbourne Cup look, then you may want get in the zone with a few of my picks below.
Shirley Mini Leather Tote, Staud
Great shape and beautiful colour. So much to love about this bag and it’s so versatile too.
Afra Off-the-shoulder Cutout Satin Top, Cult Gaia
I am really into the drama of this top with the ruched sleeves and exposed shoulder. I could definitely see myself rocking this to many an event.
Triple S Logo-embroidered Leather, Nubuck and Mesh Sneakers, Balenciaga
Whilst this is a slight departure from my events shopping, it’s a worthwhile detour as I don’t think you can ever have too many sneakers. Love the colours of these shoes and the interesting shape.
Metallic Textured Leather-Trimmed Suede Sandals, Prada
These are so much fun! The lightning bolts really make them and I can seem them adding a playful touch to any ensemble.
Gathered Plissé Satin-jersey Midi Dress, Rotate Birger Christensen
Pink is always such a beautiful colour to wear to an event and the elegant style of this dress would make it appropriate for so many different occasions.
Teddie Knotted Plissé-lamé Headband, Loeffler Randall
I love that hair accessories are such a big trend right now. This gold headband would make the ideal finishing touch to many a look.
Insignia Signet, Sarah & Sebastian
Such a dainty little piece by one of my favourite Australian jewellery labels. I’d wear this often as an understated way to accessorise a look.
Carlina Sunglasses, CHLOÉ
It’s time to freshen up my sunglasses collection and what better way to do it than with this pair by Chloe. A great shape and such a fun vibe.
Nile Minaudiere Smooth Calfskin, CHLOÉ
I’ve always really enjoyed this style of bag by Chloe and I especially love the bracelet handle which makes it look like a piece of jewellery.
One-Shoulder Ruched Velvet Maxi Dress, Les Reveries
Velvet is such a gorgeous texture on a dress. It’s also a way of adding a little depth to a look, whilst maintaining the sophisticated sensibility of a little black dress.
