Spring is finally here! Well... it has been here for the last month but it has been a while since I've ventured outside. Anyway, this means it is Spring racing season, and best of all, Melbourne Cup day! I never really understood what the fuss was all about until I had my first Cup day experience last year. I think the key enjoyment of the day was appearing at work, and not actually having to do any work. And let's not forget the mid-morning champagne.
While there were a few too many champagnes had, (resulting in the most devastating end to a pair of my favourite suede heels), the next day I was still fresh as a daisy because as it turns out, midday drinking = no hangovers. I can't promise that I won't ruin another pair of shoes, but I am determined to look glam as fuck, because who doesn't love an occasion to dress up? In an ideal world, i.e. one where I have supermodel legs and a disposable income, the above is what I would wear. Not exactly a conventional race day outfit but lately I've been really digging anything and everything that is black. What have you guys got planned for Melbourne Cup?
