and accessories as well as keeping within the guidelines of the session when
it comes to hat and dress code

Q. Can you tell us a little about your winning outfit for the Caloundra
Cup – dress – millinery –hair makeup – shoes – that amazing clear clutch – and
bow with the broach on it OUTSTANDING!
My dress was reminiscent of a 1950s dress with a modern twist on the sleeve
detailing collaborating with mum and Danielle Shaw from Leichhardt Qld.
Once my dress was made it was just putting everything else together and
making it work
Sandra – Ann Ringuet from woodend made my hat from Ipswich Qld, Sandra
creates the most amazing pieces.
Makeup and hair are by me with my hair being so long I find the large bun is not
the easiest way to go but its such an elegant and classic look that will never go
out of fashion.
My amazing clear clutch was from iconic, and mustard fabric and horse broach
for detail heels are nine west and elegant net stockings from Myer.
Added accessories vintage gold belt layered with black velvet belt so two belts
along with three-tier ball earrings and a vintage black fur.
Thank You for your time…
