Spotted in the Crowd – Stradbroke Day 2017

Still on a high from my Oaks Day win, I attended Stradbroke race day in support of my fellow fashionistas who were entering fashions on the field.  It felt a little surreal to watch others compete and not be up there amongst it!  The theme of the day was black and white with a touch of red.  The hat I wore was purchased as a plain felt piece, which I subsequently embellished with the ribbon and feathers.


Outfit: Black top from Asilio featuring box pleated bell sleeves, worn with a fitted midi skirt in black and white polkadots and a fishtail hem, sheer long sleeve mesh fitted top from Mink Pink.

Shoes: Black and white spectator style heels with grosgrain ribbon tie.

Hair: Curled, side swept and pinned up.

Accessories: Vintage black wool felt boater hat trimmed with red grosgrain ribbon and two red and black feathers, black mesh statement necklace, oval ruby stud earrings set in gold, black half gloves, burgundy satin clutch from Gregory Ladner, nude hosiery.

Perfume: Marc Jacobs ‘Dot’.

    In the winner’s circle a woman sits,

    Clothed in one of her great outfits…

    Standing by her man of whom she’s very fond:

    She’s the well-dressed woman, that Demi Monde!

    About Jonathan Caswell

    Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ…working out his salvation with fear and trembling. – Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God’s reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ’s righteousness…which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ’s work on our behalf. – College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. – Called by God to do a very difficult thing…apart from God’s grace, mercy and strength…to love the sinner (which we all–by nature–are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God’s Son, – My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life…God has a loving part in it…as hard as that is to always understand or perceive…given life’s realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
