Derby Day is near!

The Spring Racing Carnival is almost here! That means it is time to do some serious shopping. First up is my favourite of all the days, 'Derby Day.' Traditionally black and white is the theme on this day. This of course is not compulsory, however I always like to follow the tradition while adding a splash of colour. Below I am wearing one of my own designs with a Millinery by Alexandra  headpiece. I added colour to the ensemble by wearing red lipstick, a red clutch and having red in my new Nine West shoes. Adding an additional colour to your black and white outfit can really enhance your look and help add your personal touch. I think this is best achieved subtly through your accessories. 

I have styled several Derby Day looks for you below. I have included headpieces from three amazing labels, 2adornMillinery By Alexandra Annie Clifforth Millinery. I encourage you all to view their collections with the links provided. 

Good luck finding your perfect Derby Day look. Stay tuned for Dusty Petals Melbourne Cup Day Post.
