Haute to Trot

 

It’s Melbourne Cup Day in Australia. Hearts are set a flutter today; not only from watching the race and hoping you’ve backed a winner, but also from Fashions on the Field. Here’s my version of Fashion on the field, all that’s needed to top it off is a glass of very chilled champagne.

3 Outfits for Melbourne Cup

Melbourne cup and racing fever has hit Australia. What does that mean? Backing a winning horse?
Not for the ladies! Melbourne cup is more of a fashion extravaganza. It’s usually means working
till lunch time, then going with work mates to a lovely function to eat, drink waaaaaaay too much champagne, watch the race that stops the nation oh and hopefully to put some coin down on
a winner.
There is always a debate on whether to wear a hat or a fascinator. The ladies are divided on this
one. Some use this opportunity to wear a crazily high milinery wonderment while others just
wear a subtle fascinator.
A lot of women also like to carry clutches to the races. Me? I’m a hoarder and like my bags which
can hold notebook, iPad, kitchen sink.. plus I know for a fact that our leather totes can hold a
bottle of champagne and have room to spare. Moet tested. Heh heh heh.
I’ve done up 3 ways I would dress for Melbourne Cup via my friend polyvore. Hope you like them.
