There's a definite buzz in the air as we gallop through October towards November, with one of the year's biggest social events racing up quicker than the mighty mare Winx! That's right, it's time to start preparing for the 2017 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
It's an exciting time for the team at Miss Monogram. Our gorgeous Spring and Summer stock is now in-store, and the colours are sublime - just perfect for accessorising your race wear.
With the focus on fascinators and shoes, it's really worth putting some extra thought into your choice of bags, with colour and practicality points to consider. Go too big, and it will ruin your entire look. Too small, and you won't have room for your winnings!
Perfect the Pouch
With years of experience in juggling champagne flutes and race programs, we've come up with the perfect solution: the Miss London Pouch!
It's compact yet accommodating, stylish and, best of all, comes in a whole rainbow of gorgeous race wear colours. And the addition of your monogrammed initials just says it all.
For Derby Day, you can't go past the Miss London Pouch in Classic Black. Featuring genuine Saffiano leather, it's just divine, with plenty of room for your cards, cash and phone.
Come Oaks Day, floaty and feminine is the recommendation for your outfit, perfectly accessorised by a Miss London Pouch in Peony Pink, Sassy Silver, Lavender or Vanilla Creme. Or you could go for gold with the 'All that Glitters Gold' (as pictured above).
Go Bold with Colour
And then there's Melbourne Cup Day itself. Those in the know say this year's look will be bright and strong colours with a focus on hot pinks, tropical yellow, red and cobalt blue. And of course, here at Miss Monogram we're right on the money!
The Miss London Pouch is also available in Summer Yellow, Valentine Red, Vino, and Cobalt Blue. For a really HOT pink, we suggest the Miss Victoria Clutch, in Mrs Tink Pink!
The Pouch or clutch is the perfect choice for race wear, as it can easily be tucked under your arm whilst you meet and greet. And you'll always have a hand free for that glass of champagne!
When seated, simply place your pouch on your lap, or pop it between the small of your back and the chair back. Simple.
Miss Monogram Race Day Survival Guide
One for one: Match every glass of bubbles with a glass of water to stay hydrated and ladylike!
Shoes on: Don't be tempted to fling off your shoes and go barefoot. Avoid new shoe syndrome by wearing them in before the day.
Keep a distance: We all love celebrity spotting - just don't become a stalker!
Remember to eat: It's a long day - you'll need your strength!
Do it with style: With monogrammed accessories from Miss Monogram!
