Last minute invites are aways fun, aren't they? On Tuesday evening at about 10pm I was invited to St Leger, Ladies Day at Doncaster Race Track, on THURSDAY.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, (and a free bar) I calmly took myself to the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds on Wednesday and walked out an hour later with a new hat and dress, ready to join some other fabulous bloggers at Doncaster for #LadbrokesLadiesDay.
Once again, Simply Be did NOT let me down. I went straight to their store in the White Rose, knowing that I would find the perfect dress for me.
The dress I purchased from Simply Be is a Lovedrobe dress, which is available in black and white and is available online up to a size 32. Take a look -> Lovedrobe Crochet Lace Midi Skater Dress
I was joined by some fabulous bloggers. Some I have worked with before, some I hadn't met before and others that I unfortunately just didn't get a chance to have a chat with, like I wanted to. (sorry, Holly. Next time, I promise)
Everyone looked fabulous, as always. We all had a fantastic time in one of the dining areas which included table service, and also included the rather wonderful James who attended to almost our every need. (Everyone needs a James to top up their glass)
Ladies Day is ALWAYS about the hats, the bigger the better, right? I stealthily took some pictures of my favourite hats, (although I still maintain that mine was better)
Every time I saw a hat full of feathers, I just thought. "Those poor naked chickens, all wandering around cold now"
St Leger was a fantastic day, Thank you so much to Ladbrokes for their hospitality, and if you have never been to the racing, I HIGHLY recommend going, I even WON, on a couple of races, (It paid for the dress, at least)
Have you ever been to the races? I enjoyed the chance to dress up, and any opportunity I get to buy a new dress is always grabbed with both hands, how about you?
Let me know.
