How I Turned a Coat Hanger into a Hat | A DIY Headpiece for the Races

They say necessity is the mother of invention. It was the day before Kirin Stakes Day, the FOTF competition had an Embellishment theme and I didn’t have a hat. So, I decided to use an old coat hanger! I know what you’re thinking… why can’t you just PLAN EARLY and save yourself the last-minute rush? [...]

Judging Rocky Amateurs Cup in a Purple Hot Water Bottle

The Night Before 2019 Weetwood FOTF | No Outfit, No Time, No Problem!

It’s the day before the Weetwood Toowoomba Laser Clinics Fashions on the Field event. I hadn’t planned on attending, in fact, I was meant to be having a quiet weekend and possibly a clothing sale on Saturday afternoon. But I was starting to feel the itch. You know that itch? The one where you are [...]

A Look at Some of the Fantastic Prizes you can Win at the Races

I am completely relaxed right now. I’m sitting in a resort in Vanuatu overlooking crystal blue waters on a warm, sunny day. No wonder I’m suffering writer’s block!

Solo Judging and the Emerald 100 Race Day

Growing up, I had a good friend from Emerald and I’d often imagined what the small country town in central Queensland was like. So, when I was asked to judge this year’s Emerald 100 Race Day on October the 13th I jumped at the opportunity. Emerald has a population of 14,000 and is 270 km [...]

The Story Behind my Winning Outfit | Stradbroke Day 2018

Stradbroke Day is my favourite day of the Brisbane Racing Club Winter Carnival. This year was no different, but I was looking forward to it even more than usual because I had missed the other 3 days of Fashions on the Field events in the carnival. I really needed a day of frocking up and [...]
