The Race that Stops the Nation

Melbourne Cup Day is my favorite day of the year!!! I love everything about it – buzzing atmosphere, smiles and happy faces, colourful fashion and sea of hats and head pieces, I even bet and study the horses running. I also love how it is a big deal and everyone tries their best and really dresses up for it.

Traditionally Melbourne Cup is all about bright bold colours and prints and the official flower is the yellow rose. I usually plan my outfit well ahead however this time it all came together last minute (or the night before to be precise). I went for colour blocking and small netted veil as well as bold lip and tasseled waves.
