Melbourne Cup: Office Style

It may be the “Race that Stops the Nation” but I will be spending Melbourne Cup, like so many others, huddled around a screen in the office, grabbing a bite in-between meetings at work.

There’s nothing I love more than getting completely glammed up and heading to the races… And I will be doing that with the Aussie Curves girls in a few weeks time. But just because I’m stuck in the office for Melbourne Cup doesn’t mean I have to miss out of the glitz and glamour of the races completely. It’s a great excuse to wear some extra-glam accessories in the office and have a little fun with your corporate style.

It’s only a few days until my Shop What You Got Challenge starts – so my saving grace for office glam will be rocking out some serious accessories… For me – a great statement necklace is the office equivalent of a fascinator. In partnership with Autograph – I’m sharing some looks you can easily pull together for some glam-office styling for Melbourne Cup.


Keeping the rest of the outfit super basic so it doesn’t compete with this great day-bling from THE ICONIC – Melbourne Cup is a great excuse to wear over-the-top bling in the office. Coupled with a basic white tank, the Day-Bling is almost subtle. Almost.


If you are after something a bit more subtle – I’m totally loving tassels at the moment – and this great tassel bling could be the perfect finishing touch of day-bling.



Ok, so I have steered away from fascinators in the office – but I couldn’t resist including this pretty flower crown I got from ASOS Marketplace. Obviously I wouldn’t wear it all day, but it’s easy to pop on just before the race.

I’d pair with a Pink lip (Maybelline – Pink Me Up), and touch of extra blush for an all together girly look.


Is the flower crown a bit much for you? You can get the same in-your-face girly look with this Pink Autograph Necklace



Coupled with a bold stripe peplum (Autograph), I think this Black Virtu Necklace makes a modern and bold statement.


Only have a plain top? This Graphic Autograph Necklace will give you that same mod-cool feel.


Go with a little extra eye liner for an edgier look…


As soon as I saw this beautiful necklace at Autograph – I knew it would be my pick for Melbourne Cup. I plan on pairing it with my white and grey fitted dress from Target, and a super glossy nude-pink lip. This necklace is the ultimate glam accessory. I feel girly, chic and polished all at once.


But you will have to wait until the day to see the final look!
