A Day at the Races: Jackie O/Clueless Inspired

The races (aka the one day in the year fancy-event-rejects get to dress up as if they finally got an invite to something besides the local GAA ATM) is an event pencilled into my calendar every year without fail. My most recent trip to the races was further a field than most years, as this […]
