Glorious Goodwood – a day at the races

As we’re having such a lovely summer an invitation from Fairmont Hotels and Resorts to Glorious Goodwood in West Sussex for a day at the races seems like a great chance to put on some glad rags, don my latest Susie Hopkins titfer and have a little flutter.

The hat race And they’re off!!!

Who’ll be first out of the stalls for ‘The Hat Stakes’? Our host Lucinda Buxton of Mango PR wearing Gina Foster or Alice in a Susie Hopkins straw beret decorated with summer fruits?

Emily Jones Tipster GoodwoodIn the Fairmont box Emily Jones, ex-jockey turned entertaining tipster, gives us her selections for the afternoon’s races.

I’m wearing my favorite red stretchy dress and a multicolour Alice & Co silk twill jacket. Well, you don’t want to be outshone by the jockeys!

Horses racing at Glorious GoodwoodTheir brilliantly patterned silks look fabulous and have stimulated some great new Alice & Co jacket ideas for work, play or even horseracing! Have a look at my Goodwood-inspired designs at the bottom of this post.

Afternoon tea I didn’t do too well with my betting, but the traditional Afternoon Tea created by the Savoy Hotel in London was a clear winner.


A silk ‘jockey’ Alice & Co jacket would be perfect to slip over a dress as the evenings get cooler.

How about one with a Liberty print silk body and matching plain silk sleeves? Contact Alice & Co to discuss having one made to measure.
