Spring Racing Carnival – Target Ambassador
I planned to just attend Derby Day with my friends Hayley and Brooke, for a girls weekend away. But then I got the amazing opportunity to be the “SRC Target Ambassador” and was invited into the Birdcage “Swisse” Marquee for both Derby and Stakes Day. Now I know what all the hype is over the Birdcage, I have to say the Swisse Marquee was definitely the place to be. The food, cocktails and staff were all incredible and we felt extremely special.
Becoming the SRC Target Ambassador was the perfect role for me. I worked at Target Australia for 7 years, my mum worked for the company for 17 years. I am also a regular shopper at Target, for not only my kids but also myself. I have always considered myself a smart shopper and have had the belief that “you don’t need to spend a million dollars to look a million dollars”. There is no better feeling than when someone compliments me on an outfit and I respond with (for example) “It was $25 from Target”. Although I have always been a savvy shopper, I am even more so now that we have 3 children, mothers guilt always seems to kick in for me when I buy myself something but knowing I’m not spending a fortune and getting a great quality product definitely eases that guilt 😉
For both racedays I dressed head-to-toe in Target for under $250 (see pictures!) The racewear options were impressive with gorgeous dresses, shoes, handbags, accessories and fascinators. It seriously is a one-stop-shop! I loved the experience of being Target’s Spring Racing Carnival Ambassador and can’t wait to get back to the track next year!
