Last bank holiday Monday I decided to continue my birthday celebrations and hit Fairyhouse Ladies Day.
I had been planning this day for a few weeks because as soon as I heard the theme, ‘Centenery Glamour’ I became very excited. I love anything vintage and this was my opportunity to go all out, vintage style!
I had a fabulous vintage dress coat that I purchased a few years back at a vintage fair and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to showcase this beauty. The coat is full length, has mink fur cuffs and bow detail buttons, just so glam!
I was fortunate enough to have Dirty Fabulous Boutique sponsor me a beautiful cream dress for underneath, along with stunning cream leather gloves. The dress is just so adorable with fabulous brocade detailing. As for the gloves, well they speak for themselves with the adorable mustard beading.
When I saw the gloves in Dirty Fabulous I knew straight away that Millinery by Mairead had the perfect head piece to match. This headpiece was also covered in mustard vintage velvet and included pheasant feathers and huge brown florets. All which added to the entire vintage look.
I was also incredibly lucky to find dark brown court heels, as I am sure you are well aware it is not a colour we tend to see very often but i picked these up in Cinders on Wicklow street and i can honestly say they were like slippers. Last but not least my bag is also a vintage purchase from a few years ago and my little brown diamond ear-rings, which i absolutely adore are from Jenny Vander, an antique and vintage jewellery store in Dublin.
On the morning of the races I got Peter Mark Blanchardstown to do my hair and what an amazing job they did to recreate this old glamour feel.
So when I was all set my sister Jacqui, my friend Megan and I headed off at around 12.30pm.
They day was loads of fun, pictures were taken by the media, we placed some bets, drank lots of prosecco and chatted the day a way to lots of new and old friends.
We had a blast and even though I didn’t have the winning outfit, I was delighted to have made it to the Herald and independent newspapers.
It was definitely a day to remember and I look forward to my next ladies day soon!
