Dress, shoes, hat, hair, tan, makeup, suits and ties…
There’s so much to consider for Spring Carnival. Here are our tips on getting ready for race day.
All Natural Fake Tan – Sun Safe, Chemical Free and Beautiful
For an all natural, chemical-free, sun safe tan that looks and feels great, we just can’t go past Endota Spa’s Tandota tan.
Tandota tans use natural organic walnut shell extract and DHA derived from sugar cane to tint your skin a gorgeous sunkissed colour without exposing your complexion to any dangerous rays or chemicals.
We love to pop in to Endota Spa Camberwell for a luxurious tan treatment – best paired with a smooth body scrub treatment and deluxe mani&pedi to get our tips and toes out of winter’s boots and mittens and into spring’s strappy stilettos!
If you don’t have time for day spa treatement before race day, you can grab a bottle of Tandota tanning moisturiser to take home and tan in the comfort of your own home.
Award-winning Hair Stylists
For head-turning hair, we can’t go past multi-award wining Biba Salon. BIBA has taken out nearly every major award in Australia, winning both Australian Hairdresser of the Year Awards for 2013 and Hair Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year for 2014, as well as the most prestigious global awards including the AIPP Presse Coiffure, the L’Oreal Professionnel Colour Trophy, Wella Trend Vision Gold, American Crew Face Off – you name it – BIBA has won it!
Biba salon are constantly at the cutting* edge of style, so if you’re not sure what you want for your new season look, why not consult with the multi award winning stylists.
*yes that’s a hair dressing pun
Dressed for Success
To avoid the horror of seeing someone else in the same dress, we just love the unique and award winning designs from Mimma Priolo.
All Mimma Priolo garments are bespokely designed by local Mimma Priolo and made in house in the Camberwell studio or according to Mimma’s specifications by overseas fashion houses.
This season Mimma has an elegant classically modern range featuring structured, lady-like pieces with embroidered trim highlights.
This range comes in soft hues such as shell pink, nude and taupe as well as classic shades of black and midnight blue. Or if you prefer something a little more free and flowing, Mimma Priolo also has a stunning printed chiffons and silk satin collection featuring greys, whites and hot pink hightlights.
Mimma Priolo partners with award winning milliners whose handmade hats and fascinators are inspired by Mimma’s latest collections.
For the Boys
We know a lot of guys secretly (or not so secretly) love suiting up and strutting about – after all, what man doesn’t look good in a suit ammirite?
Now blue is BIG for the boys this season so we are just loving the new Fifty Shades of Blue range from Cavalier Menswear.
Race day is a chance to go all out, matching your pocket squares with your dress socks so whether you go imperial Prussian or Robins Egg, patterned, polka doted or plain, you can plan every item down to the cuff links.
