Royal Ascot, the fashion show that is.....

The Royal Ascot week is Tuesday 14th to Saturday 18th June 2011

It is a marvellous occassion when fashion meets horses and it is very much part of our social calendar.

Ladies day is a marvellous day for us ladies to dress up and look and feel amazing...but there are rules;

A hat or substantial fascinator will be acceptable.

Scarlett Lily creates beautiful bespoke headwear

Alternatively good departmental stores have a fab range of headwear

Off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps and dresses with a strap of less than one inch and miniskirts are considered unsuitable. Midriffs must be covered and trouser suits must be full length and of matching material and colour.

For me, this is the exciting part when you can buy a great dress which not only will it look amazing at Ascot but can be used for other occassions. There will be a stunning dress in our wonderful high street at a price to suit your budget.

I always like to tell you of 'little treasures' I come across and for this occassion I have found the following amazing designers;

Laura Gravestock - Gorgeous collections

Also Lovelily ( ) is one of my favourite jewellery designers

New design for the lovely Nicola McLean x.

For the men

Gentlemen are required to wear either black or grey morning dress, including a waistcoat, with a top hat. 

I hope you enjoy this truly royal occassion
