Chester Races | F A S H I O N & T R A V E L

Monday, 15 October 2018

Recently, we were lucky enough to head to our first ever ladies day at Chester Races. The guys at Foxy Bingo, Capital and Chester Races put on an amazing day.

Tickets for the event were around £40 each and it was packed with Vloggers, Bloggers and even Miss Merseyside 2018 attended as well as the usual race goers. I didn't quite realise how dressy the event itself was and a lot of ladies wore floor length gowns or jumpsuits with fascinators...(very much noted for next time). 

The racecourse in itself was not difficult to find, it is rather hard to miss the road signs, road barriers and crowds of people heading in one direction. The security was thorough and took quite a while to go through, but I can't complain as it is only there to keep us all safe! 

The drinks were surprisingly not overpriced, costing around £5 each dependent upon what you purchased. There were mini caravans/ vans with pimms, prosecco and rum. The food was delicious, with my favourite being a rice and thai green curry dish! It was only £7 which was really reasonable and meant we could go out drinking in the evening too #winwin

We had a few wins, but nothing major that meant we could quit work tomorrow and live a life of luxury. By the end of the day my feet were killing me so I'd advise that you take fold up flats in your bag as a necessity. 

After the races, we headed out to see the historic pubs that Chester has to offer. My favourite was the City Tavern where I had these delicious Gin Cocktails, which I highly recommend and they were two for £7. 



It was a very boozy evening, but such a good day. I really enjoyed watching the races and no horses were injured during the day, thank goodness.

I thought as something slightly different, we would add a little F A S H U N into this post...This is a first for Oh So T! We never and I repeat never branch out into Fashion, you #fbloggers are way too fashionable and on trend for me. But recently I have found myself loving my wardrobe, picking up some versatile pieces and quite frankly kinda feeling my style! (It's the little things in life) So I thought I would branch out into some Fashion posts and see what the reception is. If you guys hate it I'll obviously go back to our regular niche...

I should point out that the day we went was bizarre weather, it was cloudy and cold one moment and the roasting the next... BLOODY NIGHTMARE TO DRESS FOR!! I opted for the above ensemble and Andy chose to go classic in his suit. 

Outfit Details:-

Tori


DRESS  - Boohoo - This is the Boutique Crochet Panelled Bodycon Dress in Grey, although as you can see from the picture it is a very light grey colour. It cost me around £20 with my student discount, but can be brought here for £20. They also have it in the cutest red colour, which would be perfect for Christmas. 

SUNGLASSES - Rayban - My trusty £40 Duty free Bargain when we headed to Budapest and they are my babies... The cheapest I can find a similar pair for you guys is £86, and they can be brought here

SHOES - ASDA - My first pair of actual Court shoes (legit Court shoes) and they were £20. I got these five years ago for my first trip to Court in sixth form. I have found a similar pair for £30 from ASOS. They can be brought here

There is also this very similar pair from New Look for £19.99 although mine do not have the snakeskin strap, which I actually think is a cute touch. You can purchase the New Look version here.

CLUTCH - ASDA - Again a cheeky shopping bargain. This was brought years ago and is a timeless piece that goes with almost every outfit I own. I haven't been able to find a dupe for this at all unfortunately. There are lots of clutch bags for cheap in places like Primark and even Ebay. 

I didn't accessorise my outfit on the day bar my Michael Kors rose gold watch and Pandora rings, which I rarely leave at home. Solely because our taxi came early and I needed to rush out the door.

Andy

SUIT - Topman - We brought Andy's suit for a window last year and I cannot find the exact one. (The importance of being on trend I guess). You can buy a very similar one here for a £100

SHOES - Burton - These were brought at the same time as the suit, but Mens shoes very rarely go out of fashion. These can be brought here for £35. 

The beauty about Ladies Day was that anything went Fashion wise. Everyone celebrated their own unique style and not one person questioned it. I do wish I had worn something longer or more elegant, but it was a last minute decision to go! Watch this space for next year!! 

Hopefully you enjoyed the little bit of new on the blog and if you liked this post please follow our social media as it really helps support my little blog!

  3. Or maybe, every London design house grandstands its one of a kind interpretation of mold forward ideas, and their accumulations are still market prepared. The substantial hitters in London like Richard Nicholl, Christopher Kane and Giles Deacon are altogether stunning originators who deliver financially feasible accumulations that would emerge at any of the form appears the world over.
