ONE OF A KIND

This is a vin­tage dress, from Opera by Richards. I bought it on eBay. I do a lot of eBay search­ing, al­ways on the look­out for things that are in­di­vid­ual, things that are unique. The risk with go­ing to the races so of­ten is that there will be some­one there in the same out­fit as you. Buying vin­tage means that I negate that risk – and of course it’s very en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly. The great­est chal­lenge is in the siz­ing – cur­rent siz­ing bears no re­sem­blance to that from 20 to 30 years ago. I have also been passed many amaz­ing dresses by my friends’ moth­ers – I say: don’t be afraid to try it on and see. For this one I bought faux-fur cuffs and they re­ally change it up. I love a hat, too. They are a re­quire­ment at some meets, of course, but on a re­ally sunny day they are vi­tal – a re­ally help­ful sun­screen and eye-pro­tec­tor. Race­courses are very ex­posed, so there’s no re­lief if it is hot or cold and a hat makes a huge dif­fer­ence, win­ter and sum­mer.
