Winning best dressed Galway Races 2008

Winning Anthony Ryan Best Dressed Lady Competition at the Galway Races was a dream come true for me, I was four months pregnant with my son Charlie at the time. My husband Kerry and daughter Rosie travelled to the races with me. My outfit was a purple strapless dress by French Connection, with coordinating purple shoes from Quills, Killarney. I made the Handbag and Headpiece myself. The headpiece was inspired by a Hibiscus flower, which I covered in yellow feathers and finished with matching purple butterflies.
