Cup day!

November 3, 2009 § 20 Comments

Ahh it’s that time of the year again, Melbourne Cup day! An utterly pointless but very well loved public holiday to watch horse racing (well they do call it “The race that stops a nation”)! Usually we get down to nature up in the Dandenong ranges but since we couldn’t take a 4 day weekend we had to alter our plans a bit. We first went for yum cha and then had a relaxing afternoon at the tranquil Fitzroy gardens.

 Black dress (worn as blouse): My own design

Vintage garden floral skirt: My own design

Velvet headband: My own design

Tan leather bag: Prada 

Black and gold sunglasses: No brand bargain store grab

Black flats: Joy&Happiness

Yellow wedges (worn in 1st pictures, had to take them off because I had some horrid blisters): China

I must admit the weather wasn’t tip top, the sun couldn’t make up its mind and the winds were a tad temperamental. But we had a blast anyway!

Congratulations to everyone who bet on Shocking or anyone who won anything! Hope you all had a lovely day!


Crazy for patterns

After watching the September Issue too many times I am absolutely in love with Anna’s assortment of printed shift dresses or just prints… I made a pencil skirt for my mum out of a lovely red, navy and white stretch cotton but she wore it once and decided she didn’t like it. I loved the print and I hate seeing fabric wasted so I took it in and up and now it’s mine!

I also picked up this lovely printed silk chiffon not long ago:

It’s very ‘garden in bloom’/’nana chic’ Wasn’t really sure what I would do with it before but expect something along the lines of this in the coming weeks (after the E-week next week and speech night, the school year’s pretty much over!)
