UK news I went charity shopping in Newmarket and found the perfect race day dress last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- I quickly realised I would be spoilt for choice
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Newmarket is famous throughout the country for its British Thoroughbred horse racing course which attracts thousands of spectators every year. And a day at the races wouldn't be complete without a pretty cocktail dress to wear and perhaps even a fascinator. But for all horse racing's posh reputation, is it possible to be the talk of Ladies Day on a budget? That's the question I had in mind when I took the train from Cambridge to Newmarket in search of a Kate Middleton-worthy dress on a charity shop budget. Given the proximity of the race course to the High Street and with its July Festival coming up, I began my search for the perfect outfit. I quickly realised I would be spoilt for choice: there were numerous charity shops full of just the kinds of dresses I was looking for.

It fit well and paired nicely with a small bow-shaped fascinator I also found in the shop. I found a satin white dress and bow-shaped fascinator at Cancer Research UK The dress was also pleasantly light and breezy, being made of a satin - perfect for a hot summer's day at the races. It was £8.50 and the fascinator £4.95. Coming to less than £15, it was a lovely and affordable outfit and the dress was as good as new.

I also found a pretty red dress I liked in the YMCA for just £6 but in the absence of fitting rooms, I decided to leave it behind. But of all the shops I visited, St Nicholas Hospice Care had the most glamorous and expensive-looking dresses. The charity boutique had everything you could need for a day at the races: hats, fascinators and designer labels. The fancier clothes were reflected in fancier prices, though: a floral blue dress that caught my eye but didn't quite fit was £30.

Still, compared to how much you could certainly splash out on a race day dress elsewhere, it still felt like a steal. But which dress did I actually plump for after an afternoon shopping in Newmarket? The same as on any girly shopping trip. The very first one I tried on.
