A Day at the Races

In 2010 my Family and I took an amazing trip to Galway, Ireland for the Race Week. If I am honest I had very little interest in the horse racing and betting side of things. I was there for the Fashion, plain and simple. The picture above is a snapshot of my outfit from Ladies Day. Both my hat and my dress were made especially for me by two local designers, Michael Gerrard Millinery and Una Rodden designs. We had a luxurious stay in the G hotel Galway which offered stunning surroundings and a buzzing nightlife. They even had their own “Best Hat” and “Best Dressed Lady” competition at night in the hotel. My hat, pictured above was a finalist in the “Best Hat” competition and the following evening, wearing my pink evening dress by Versace (pictured below) I was a finalist in the “Best Dressed Lady” Comp. This was a truly enjoyable trip, and if you thought that race week was a time to don the wellies and cheer on some horses, you were very much mistaken. So have the Hats and Heels on stand by for 2012! Let me know what you think of my outfit selection for the weekend and our fabulous suite in the Hotel!
