Its been 23 days since I took these photos ^^;; I keep procrastinating getting distracted – even now lol, I’m in between windows ordering stuffs from Gmarket..
For those who aren’t Australian, Melbourne Cup is THE famous horse race held in Melbourne every year on the first Tuesday of November. Labelled as ‘the race that stops the nation’ (lol who came up with that) it’s about betting, horses, drinking and for girls it usually means fashion~
So obviously, for it to stop the whole nation, you don’t have to be in Melbourne to be part of it. If you’re not in Melbourne you’re most likely to be watching it on TV.For the special few that get the day off work like me *woot* you can go to a race course or in my case – the Gold Coast Turf Club which was part of Melbourne Cup day races. Awesome because you can see a live horse race too!
This is the race at Gold Coast – not Melbourne cup.. I labelled this one as ‘Horses and the city’ hehe lame I know ^^; The buildings make a awesome backdrop~
My race dress.. and my sailor hat from Halloween ^^ On the advice from my mum and Lindsay. I forwent the usual fasinator/hat that people normally wear because it was more ‘fun’ . Plus it also suited my outfit right? ^^! WIN WIN for multiple usage! Although guys were like ‘Hey sailor’ -_-;; Suppose I deserved that lol.
I haven’t posted in awhile because I have no pretty photos to show.. Yes I know I was suppose to post Melbourne Cup day ones but I haven’t been motivated to process them all yet.. and I know people who are waiting for them..
So today I have presented you with a FASHION DONT wtf. Taken today at Grilled Burgers@ Garden City. No. 23 you know who you are, not likely that you’ll ever come across my blog though =P Yeah.. I’m not that popular *sadface* Sorry for the crappy photos, it was iphone. (iphone is not a adjective but I’m making it one)
Shirt – short sleeve stripped collared shirt – okay
Pants – tracksuit pants – hmm maybe okay?
Shoes – HOUSE SLIPPERS !! O_O! oh no you did not!
No guys, they were not thongs (or flip flops for those in the US) they were SLIPPERS you wear inside the house. Thongs are okay to wear in Australia, everyone wears them – nothing wrong with them (well except in certain places XD), but this particular person chose slippers. Maybe it wouldnt have been so bad if he just wore a normal T-shirt to go with his trackpants, but no, he went a little dressier and it all went down hill from there – all the way to his feet.
Sorry No. 23 for picking on you. I’m no fashion police (nor am I qualified to be one) but really??
ps. I’m waiting for Gossip Girl Season 4, Episode 8 to finish downloading !
Today we take a break from our regular photolog travel bloggin to bring you a post about things I’ve wasted money on..
Guys – possibly not interested, tune in next time =D
Forced myself to go shopping after a tiring nanna nap (yup! woke up more tired than before I napped!) and went to DFO today (Discount Factory Outlet!) because well.. I can? XD
Forever New is having a ‘Buy 1 get 1 Free’ SALE! Soooo.. I ended up with 4 items
I know~ not full shots but meh, I didnt feel like changing my lens so I’m going the artistic route
Cute stripped bolero jacket from 69.99 to 39.95 AUD – love the pin! Material is nice too, warm but not too warm, cropped sleeves good for nights and autumn (lol, I know, wrong season for Australia, I shop backwards)
