I’m planning on heading back to Hastings racetrack this Saturday for the second event of the Triple Crown, The Preakness, which I think is my favourite name of all the horse races.

I’m not a gambler in anyway, I get far too stressed out!  Even if someone bets on a horse that I said I thought looked pretty or has a cool name (seriously, who ever started naming horses crazy things is a genius!). I just generally just enjoy the day out and excuse to dress up.

What I wore:

I really love this Windy City dress from Modcloth.  My only bummer is, even though I measured everything multiple times before ordering, the bust was still waaaay too small for me.  I was really disappointed (as you can tell, I am super busty!), until I realised I am one crafty bugger, so I cut the lining out of the front bodice panel.  Since it is all gathered on the front, there was plenty of room after I removed it!

It’s sheer now, but a with a black bra, I think it still looks wicked!

  1. Your craftiness is an inspiration. And lol for horse races. I’ve only been to the Hastings track once. It was actually part of my Jack & Jill stag for my first marriage and all the activities were themed around the 7 deadly sins. I think the track was meant to be greed. I only made a couple $1 bets, but it was way more fun than I expected.

  2. You look fantastic in both outfits. Your creativity is awesome. 🙂
    Thank you for reminding me there is a race this weekend. Dressing up would be fun but we don’t have a track to go and watch it at. Maybe we will have to try and come there next year to do that.
