Ok. I get a little excited about Spring Races and the BIG one is just around the corner: Melbourne Cup!
The one event that gives Victoria a public holiday off, and makes the rest of the nation take an extended lunch. Gotta love an event like that!! Now, some of us, actually go to work in the morning, and wearing a work AND Cup appropriate dress is not an easy thing to do.
So, because I am a nice girl, I have collated a selection of websites that are featuring work appropriate race day outfits. Anything really, for my FIS readers, because I love youse all. And I have picked my favourite if I had unlimited funds. One lives in hope.
Look for the more structured dresses for work. This one will work with a short jacket or cardy over the top for work.
and my favourite look:
Loads for around $100. Including Plus size and Maternity!
My fave here:
Loads of dresses on sale. This on By Johnny isn’t, but omg, the cut and colour of this dress. YUM>
I received a nice little blog post in the mail by Trade Secret. My pick would have to be this combo, with the WHOLE outfit being less than $100!. The dress would still be ok for work with a blazer.

All of these dresses are suitable for a morning in the office, just add a blazer and more office appropriate shoes. Come lunchtime: add a hat or fascinator, a clutch, a pair of great heels and loose the jacket. Off you go to PLACE YOUR BETS!
What do you do for Melbourne Cup at work or at home?
Til Next time,
