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.
