Happy Melbourne Cup day Schnappers. I for one did not do anything more exciting than have a sneaky champagne at my desk between meetings. I put around $4 on the office sweep stakes and watched on dismally as neither of my horses were even mentioned through out the entire race.
Being a lover of fashion I am honestly not a big fan of race day fashions, surprising I know. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I think it’s to do with two things. 1. Hats and gloves… just not a big fan, not even on shows such as Mad Med, and 2. Everyone just looks a bit conceited on the day. You know what i mean? Like they have just tried way too hard and their shoes matches their hat that matches their belt that matches their gloves… You get my drift.
Well considering I am the Ebenezer Scrooge of Melbourne cup, here is my $90 “what I wore” for cup day:
Ava ribbed peplum dress by Forcast – currently on sale for $49.95
Shoes by Niichi – $20
Beach hat by Ausko – $20
Patent black leather belt stolen off a different dress.
