One Dress, Four Ways at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival

By Imogenl @ImogenLamport

If you're a keen racegoer, Melbourne's Spring Racing Carnival can be an expensive time of year. So I thought, why not just buy one dress, and then using the beauty bundle concept, change it up so you feel like you're wearing a completely different outfit each time, still on theme.

I've chosen a simple offwhite dress by Phase 8 (available at David Jones) and show how easily the whole outfit looks and feels more different just by changing up a few accessories.

First thing you may be a little chilly, so a lightweight shrug is a good way to keep the chill off until the sun warms up.
