I can't believe it's nearly time for the Galway Races again! When you live in Galway it is either time to vacate the city for the week or else immerse yourself in the whole experience. Any opportunity to dress up for the day, drink champagne and admire the fashion means I don't need much persuasion to hang around! Last year, I had just started my personal styling business so I decided to head out to Ballybrit with a few friends and take some pictures of my favourite style from the day.
Personally, I find that some of the media can focus too much on style that is a little bit old fashioned and conservative, instead of concentrating on the contemporary, exciting, current looks that could really showcase the event as a fashionable affair.
Obviously when you are dressing for the races you want to dress appropriate for the occasion. But that doesn't necessarily mean you need to follow the same old tried and tested formula. Instead, why not stick to your own personal style but adapt it appropriately to the occasion (see the pictures for some inspiration).
If you would like some assistance in purchasing a new look for the races, please feel free to contact me for a personal shopping session.
