On Friday morning, the plan was to leave for Canal Walk early so that I could be there as the doors opened. A few distractions and a second cup of coffee later, I still didn’t too badly and arrived just as it started filling up.
The theme this year is Rare Blend. I’ve been trying to figure out how people will interpret that. I can imagine different prints, different colours, feathers and sequins. Who knows?
I headed off to River Island and the lovely ladies helped me pull out a few options.
Off we went to the change room…

You guys are so awesome and according to the Snaps, it was a toss up between Option 2, the yellow dress and option 4, the black dress.
I decided on option 4, the black dress, as it’s more versatile. I love that it has a Tuxedo look to it, and that was my sophisticated take on the Rare Blend theme… a Tuxedo dress.
I found the most incredible black and orange heels and clutch to match for a pop of colour. I did look at the heels and think about the grass, but I knew they would just make the dress. No pain; no gain!
In the mens department I got a black bow tie, that I thought I’d add for the day!
On the morning of the J&B Met, I curled my hair using the Glam Palm Wand and got dressed. As soon as I put the bow tie on I just knew it didn’t look as good as I had imagined it would. With my blonde curls and the bowtie, it just made me look a little Playboy Bunny-ish and not the sophisticated look I was going for.

Sox and I arrived in time for his DJ set on the main stage.

We couldn’t stay the full time, and even though I didn’t do any betting on the horses this year, we still had so much fun! Well done to the organisers and thank you so much for having me!
