Clothing Question- Races!

Thu May 26, 2011 9:49 pm

This may seem pretty random but I am in need of some advice..

DH's work is sponsoring a race day on Sunday and we are required to go. I am planning on wearing a grey lace dress, black tights, high heeled black boots, and I have a black coat as backup as it always gets cold at about 3pm.

I am just after some suggestions as to what colour fascinator to wear. I have a attached photos of the dress with the 2 necklaces I have to choose from..Im just struggling with the fascinator!

I'd go the 2nd necklace myself, and match it with a dusty rose/pink fascinator to match the flowers on that necklace. And then if you can get your hands on a dusty pink clutch, that would set it all off nicely. But I love a bit of colour to brighten up the black and grey myself! :heart:

Buggar! If it wasn't so soon, I actually have one here which I think would go perfectly with your necklace, I'd send it to you if I thought it would arrive on time!

Have you tried Diva etc? Even something like a large flower clip could work as a fascinator at a push.

both the necklaces were purchased from Diva last week. I went in there again tonight and bought some accessories to go with a black dress (the same as the grey), but DH likes the grey dress better. I will be going back to look in Diva and Equip tomorrow
