Ascot: Ladies Day
I’ve been a bit MIA lately, as work has been crazy busy, plus I’ve lost my photographer so getting photos taken is proving a challenge. But I did manage to have a break yesterday as we were invited to go to Ascot for Ladies Day – so much fun! Everyone looked amazing in their colourful, posh outfits, and it was fun placing bets on the horses. But the best part for me was seeing the Queen!! Having grown up with an English father who insisted we sit down every Christmas to watch the Queen’s speech, it was amazing to be able to see her and Prince Philip ride past in their horse and carriage.. I love the tradition!
Unfortunately I only took my little point and shoot camera, so I wasn’t able to get some better photos of my outfit but it was pretty simple anyway – striped dress & wedges by Mango, jewelry from Gorjana and Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen bag, and some YSL red lipstick. Tomorrow I’m going back to Ascot again – but this time to the posh Grandstand Will keep ya updated on Instagram!
Happy weekend everyone!
New in: McQueen beauty!
I am so excited to show you my new love - this gorgeous Alexander McQueen tote! My first ever designer handbag! I scored this in the sales at Harrods yesterday, and I can’t stop staring at it and feeling the wonderful soft leather hehe. I love the classic shape and simple style, plus the oversized zipper features and skull pendant that doubles as a lock. Am going to get so much use out of this beauty! Do you like it? Thank you so much to my wonderful boyfriend for helping me buy this for my birthday – you’re the best!!
Late Sunday post for me after an awesome weekend – Saturday at Lovebox and today at the summer sales Had to exercise some serious self-control, temptation was everywhere haha.
What do you think of my festival look? Had to bring out the gumboots as the forecast said thunderstorms – luckily though, it stayed dry for the crowds! After living in China so long, Love learning about new musicians – Delilah, Little Dragon, and Emeli Sande were great, plus it was fun to see people like Kelis and Groove Amada!
Now off to get my beauty sleep for the week ahead! x
