Sisters Bec and Marissa Karagiorgos are just like any other Australian siblings, except for their incredible style, creative talents and global network of clients that culminate in their blog Twice Blessed. Have a scroll through their Instagram feed and you'll find endless fashion and beauty inspiration, which you'll especially love if you share their passion for monochrome and laidback but still powerful styling.
The Twice Blessed bloggers are no stranger to a day at The Races, having recently been a big part of the Spring Racing Carnival at Flemington as ambassadors for Emporium Melbourne. We had a one-on-two with the stylish Bec and Marissa and got their advice for race day style.

Your styles seem to suit each race day (Oaks Day more feminine, Derby Day more classic cuts). What are both of your favourite race day styles?
