Never underestimate a pair of heels at the races! Yes, they hinder your ability to run, walk after a few champers or even be comfortable – but they do make your legs look ridiculously good! And that, friends, is what we’re after. Right?
The days of high platforms and stick thin heels are behind us (well, everyone except Gina Liano) a killer set of block heels, chunky lucites or embroidered mid-heels will be right on trend this year at both Caulfield and Flemington. They’re the perfect addition to any outfit and you won’t sink into the grass! Win, win.
If you’re on the hunt for your perfect summer pair, Chapel Street should be at the top of the list! And to make sure you get the perfect pair in record time – here are our top 5 places for high heels to check out first!

Let’s be real – you can’t go wrong with Tony Bianco. Their collections are always on trend, their shoesies are great quality & their prices can justify the three pairs you just bought – after promising the BF that you were cutting back on shopping (soz, Tom). For this SS17 – we’re alllllll about their chunky heels and ankle wrap details. It’s #love.

A MIMCO clutch is an essential in any wardrobe, this much is true. But have you ever paid a little attention to the shoes?! Because if you haven’t, sweet baby you’re missing out! Like anything worthwhile, there aren’t many choices, but what options you do have are 10/10. Personally, we’re loving the mid-heel for super easy to wear sparkles that’ll go all day and into the night. So important for all horsey orientated events! (Hellloooo Polo)

Windsor Smith’s collections are slightly edgy, they go with everything & the prices don’t break the bank – which during this time of year, is exactly what we need, amirite?! When you’re after something to go with the cute little dress you just pay-waived, or a simple, black thick heeled leather something – Windsor Smith will have your back. And your perfect heels! We’re loving these strappy little numbers for summer. They’ll add a touch of somethin’ somethin’ to a simple dress… or the dress you wore three years ago and hoping that no one notices.

Gently stroke the soft velvet. Then, before you know it, you’ve noticed another pair. And another pair.

Ahh Valentine’s Day, a stupid cliche, a money making con or an opportunity to show your numero uno how much you really appreciate them. There’s so much to do on Chapel Street this day of love, even the hard-hearted will soften.
