Melbourne Cup Day

The fashion stakes

Cup Day

Oaks Day

Derby Day

The Race That Stops A Nation! 

It's all about fashion, glamour, champagne, frivolity and a friendly flutter!

So let the race begin .....

I love the Spring Racing Carnival ~
It's so refreshing and exciting to see Melbourne dressed in their finest ~
men in smart Italian suits and silk ties,
women in laylike dresses, feathers, flowers, fascinators and heels.
It's a great opportunity to dress up, have a glass of champagne and a social bet.
It's a public holiday so if you are not actually going to the races
then gather some friends, throw a party and watch the race on TV.
This year it promises to be a glittering Royal affair with
Prince Charles and Camilla attending.
The fashion tips are for bright and colourful on the fashion field
~ except for the classic black and white dress code of Derby Day.
