Spring Carnival is nearly here!

I love the races! In fact, all of my girlfriends do. Its such a perfect excuse to get dressed up and spray tanned and spend the day in the sun drinking champagne.

Just a note to those who were confused about the racing protocol: As much as it is all of these great things I mention above, it is not an excuse to get totally wasted and stumble out of Randwick Racecourse, heels in hand. Be a lady ok.

Anyhow, I think our love for the races started because one of my  girlfriend's has a birthday on the 3rd November - right around Melbourne Cup time, so we always had a reason to go. A few years back we took the trip to Melbourne for her birthday and went to the Melbourne Cup at Flemington and it was such an amazing day! Our mugs ended up on the Sydney Morning Herald Online home page!

I am looking forward to this year's Spring Carnival because another wonderful girlfriend has released her third range of fascinators and hats! I swear her designs get better and better every year, not to mention more and more popular, so you have to get in quick!

Lauren conveniently lives five minutes from Randwick Racecourse so this is the perfect avenue for her creative skills to shine and she is one talented milliner. You can find her collection - Eliza Do-Little - at the following locations;

Here is a pic of some of my girlfriends at Randwick Races two years ago wearing Eliza Do-Little creations.

Once again the new collection is amazing. The striped fascinator below is my fave and I will be looking for an outfit that matches this piece perfectly!

Those who are into a day out at the races, know that hats and fascinators can be HUGELY expensive! But you haven't checked out Eliza Do-Little designs yet have you? These designs are not only affordable but all uniquely designed, hand-sewn, well crafted and each piece is an original! Eliza Do-Little designs will make you feel like a lady!

So proud of you Loz you clever thing!
