A Day at the Races. Tramore Races Ladies Day!
So on Saturday the races were on in Tramore. Its one of their more popular race meets and it goes on for about a week in August and its aptly called ‘Race week’ ! Anyway, one of the girls birthdays is coming up so we decided to give her a real girls day out or should I say ‘ladies day’! and what better way than to go to the races for ‘ladies day’!
Admission costs 15 euro per adult although because there were so many of us (15) it cost just 10euro in each which was pretty good for a day out in my books! Anyway we walked in the gates and who did we see almost immediately only Roz Purcell! So naturally we (I – haha) asked for a picture, which I posted on my Snapchat (‘wildflowerDblog’). Roz was a special guest at the races judging the ladies day entrants. She wore this stunning jumpsuit which I loved and huge chunky wedges which meant she was towering over us all!
Later in the day I was tagged in a post on facebook that was an article RSVP magazine wrote on Roz Purcell at the races and my picture was in it ! You can check it out here – RSVP Magazine article. How funny!
Anyway It was a fab day out and we went to see the final ten in the Best Dressed Competition. The Winner was Bebhinn McGrath who is a dressmaker and actually made her own dress and head piece ! Wow! If only I could make my own clothes!!! Id save myself an absolute fortune haha !!!!
The Prize for Best Dressed was a thousand Euro Redlane voucher !! Yes a thousand !!! Annnnnnd a collection from Waterford Crystal I believe!! I wouldn’t turn down either to be honest! On top of this each of the ten entrants scored themselves a fifty euro Redlane Voucher and a pair of Waterford Crystal Glasses.
These two pictures are from The Racecourse Facebook viewable here .
Waterford Crystal and Redlane Boutique in Tramore were the sponsors of Ladies day at the races incase you hadn’t guessed ! Above ,pictured is winner of the ladies day Bebhinn McGrath with judge Rozanna Purcell and Sponsors David McCoy (House of Waterford Crystal) and Catherine Keighrey (Redlane Boutique)
This is what I wore, bump and all! lol … Had a great day with the girls and i’d highly recommend Ladies Day at the races as a good girls day out!
