I’m planning on heading back to Hastings racetrack this Saturday for the second event of the Triple Crown, The Preakness, which I think is my favourite name of all the horse races.

I’m not a gambler in anyway, I get far too stressed out!  Even if someone bets on a horse that I said I thought looked pretty or has a cool name (seriously, who ever started naming horses crazy things is a genius!). I just generally just enjoy the day out and excuse to dress up.

What I wore:

I really love this Windy City dress from Modcloth.  My only bummer is, even though I measured everything multiple times before ordering, the bust was still waaaay too small for me.  I was really disappointed (as you can tell, I am super busty!), until I realised I am one crafty bugger, so I cut the lining out of the front bodice panel.  Since it is all gathered on the front, there was plenty of room after I removed it!

It’s sheer now, but a with a black bra, I think it still looks wicked!

v 1.0

//Windy City dress – Modcloth

//gold glitter platform heels – Payless Shoesource

//gold head chain – forever21

//multi strand gold plated necklace – thrifted

 

v 2.0

//gold and enamel brooch – thrifted

//Liza suede and leather boots – DUO boots (they specialize in all size of foot and calf widths)

//black cap gloves – vintage (awesome x-mas gift from my Mom, a box FULL of vintage gloves!)

//wide brim hat – Forever 21 (the band had pyramid studs)

 

My body mod jewelry & makeup

//opal flat disc medusa labret – Industrial Strength

//00g gold tunnels with green encased rhinestones – Wild Cat (seriously, having them incased is the best, no loose or lost stones anymore!)

//lipstick – Lime Crime Red Velvet

 

So, which look should I go for? V 1.0 or V 2.0??

    Your craftiness is an inspiration. And lol for horse races. I’ve only been to the Hastings track once. It was actually part of my Jack & Jill stag for my first marriage and all the activities were themed around the 7 deadly sins. I think the track was meant to be greed. I only made a couple $1 bets, but it was way more fun than I expected.

      We go a quite a few times throughout the summer. My favorite day is the wiener dog race day! So cute!

        WHAT?!? That sounds amazing! I remember going to the pig races at the PNE, but wiener dogs is a whole other level.

          It’s amazing! It’s just a small part of the track they use and most of them don’t finish because they’re all excited and confused! But there are tonnes of the little guys walking around that day!!

    I really love both. The versatility you’ve created with just very few key pieces is amazing and I really admire your style! x

      Thanks, doll! I can’t fall asleep at night so I think up outfits and accessorize them in my head and it occurred to me that would be a decent blog post haha!

    You look fantastic in both outfits. Your creativity is awesome. 🙂
    Thank you for reminding me there is a race this weekend. Dressing up would be fun but we don’t have a track to go and watch it at. Maybe we will have to try and come there next year to do that.

    The hat with your hair is a winning combination for me! You look so edgy, I love it! x
