Three Feathers

Wore this to the Sofitel Girls’ Day Out Raceday at Doomben.  Out of more than 100 entrants, I was chuffed to make the Final 8 in the Fashions on the Field competition.


Outfit: Vintage (1930s) bias-cut gown in soft autumn colours featuring wide ruffled sleeves and deep V neckline, worn with brown satin sash belt.

Shoes: Nude T bar heels.

Hair: Worn in a chignon at the nape.

Accessories: Reworked (by me!) 1960s turban-style hat with three feathers and vintage brown stone brooch, gold drop earrings, vintage cameo bracelet, brown quartz pendant on fine gold chain.

Perfume: Valentino ‘Valentina’.

    1. Hi Jonathan, thank you, I felt amazing in this. I’d spent the weekend before working on re-purposing the hat, and was so glad to finally have the chance to wear the exquisite 1930s dress. Thanks again for taking the time to write, D xx
