Royal Talk

It’s that time of the year again. Where Melbourne is full to the brim of horse shoes, fascinators and marquees.

Spring = Spring Racing Carnival time in our great city and Royal Arcade is the perfect place to grab all of your race day essentials in one place!

If you’re not wanting to splurge on a completely new outfit get those shoes fixed that are sitting at the back of your closet and the suit that’s a little too big tailored. The teams at Evans Shoes and Handbag Repairs and Continental Tailors would be more than happy to help.

Beauty sleep is definitely necessary for a week of racing fun but you can fake it till you make it, with a lash lift and brow tint at the Brow and Lash Parlour. Also make sure your toes are ready to see the sun after a long, cold winter with a pedicure from Q&H Nails.


Guys feel the spring carnival pressure too, so they can get suave at Men’s Biz and the gals can head to Forcast Hairdressing or Confidente Hair Salon for the perfect raceday blow out.


Grab your trackside jewels from Secrets Shhh, Jeeba Jewellery or Moose and Wolfe Jewellers and a new pair of shoes from Habbot Shoes!
