Day at the races

Its horse racing season and what other way do we like to celebrate this, by dressing up to the nines in our best dresses and having a day in the sun, sipping champagne

Horse racing is that one excuse to dress up in the most classy, beautiful dresses and show off. We have rounded up our favourite dresses perfect for the occasion. We know a lot of the dresses are Vogue, but there beautiful patterns - that is our only excuse!

The high halter neck, just above the knee in length dress is perfect for sipping cocktails in the sun whilst staying classy. Whats great about this pattern you can also make it in a maxi dress depending on what style you want. 

Fall in love with this vintage Vogue pattern. We feel this is greatly inspired by the 60's. The dress features a pull over style dress with a side zip for a comfortable but fitted feel. It also has a raised waist, fitted bodice and a flared skirt. 

Absolutely fallen head over heels for this pattern from Vogue, I shall be defiantly making this dress! This dress is a modern twist on classic dress. The dress ties up with a halter-neck tie with a contrasting ribbon. This beautiful dress has a back band which we feel adds a lot of detail to the dress, it also has a full pleated skirt both front and back.
