{Travel} Durban July Flashback!

Seeing as this weekend it's that time of the year again I thought why not share our experience with you from last year.
Unfortunately we will not be going this year as we are going to Paris end of the month.
Anyway, back to last year.
We decided to go to the Durban July 2011, and what an amazing event!

For those of you who don't know what the Durban July is, it's our yearly Horseracing event in South Africa, we actually have 2 of them a year, one in Durban (Durban July) and the other in Cape Town (J&B Met)

This is just an excuse for us to Dress up and have fun and of course do some betting! (Fail hehe)

Anyway what a memorable weekend! We had so much fun! We were in the 5FM Miller Dark Horse Marquee (Pic Below) The big tent in the middle was actually a dance floor that they opened later the night with all the top 5fm DJ's and some great music groups. Only not so fun part was they mostly only sold beer - Miller's obviously, but Cedric was happy about that, it's all he drinks!

We left the Friday and came back the Sunday, Durban is a 5hour drive from Johannesburg but well worth it!

I wish we could go again this year, but hey, good excuse to work on the perfect outfit for next year's Durban July!
Seeing as we decided last minute to go to the event we quickly through outfits together, quick tip that someone gave me and I am so glad the told me, GIRLS NO HEELS!!!!!
Unless you hate the shoes and want to destroy them with grass, mud and dust.

So if you ever come to South Africa over that period or are in South Africa now, do yourself a favour and go to the Durban July!!! Remember to go look at  for some great outfit pieces that will help you stand out in the crowd at the Durban July!!!!
