Last Tuesday, for Melbourne Cup Day, we decided to do what we did last year; stay home, relax and enjoy watching the big race in the comfort of our very own loungeroom. Although the thought of attending the Cup is very appealing to me, I don't envy any woman having to stand in heels all day, especially in the rain. You'd need to be wearing some comfy heels with a matching umbrealla, that's for sure!
To be honest with you, I really love the fashion more than the horse racing itself and love dressing up for the occassion. I decided to wear black for my base and add a touch of pastel, with my favourite digital printed shirt by Melbourne based designer, Jolet.
Who knows, maybe next year, I may be lucky enough to even attend. Did you go? How was the experience for you? For those of you who live abroad, have you ever attended a horse racing extravaganza?
Hoping the week ahead is fabulous for you! I will be working on my student reports. Lucky me!
Yours in style,
