HOT TO TROT

Frankie wedges by Tony Bianco, dress from a boutique store in Beverly Hills, mixed gold jewellery, fascinator by Sportsgirl and chronograph watch by Marc Jacobs

Last Tuesday, 1/11/11 - it was Melbourne Cup Day where hundreds of race-goers, betters and spectators flocked to Flemington race course and other racing grounds around Australia. Being a public holiday for most metropolitan Victorians, not all states have been granted the god-send that is a day off work. Lucky for me, the company I work for treated us to a day out at Royal Randwick - amazing or what! There was excitement buzzing in the air, including a lot of fascinators, champagne and both thrilling wins and unfortunate losses. Though as the sun kept on shining, so did our smiles and merriment. A great day overall which ended with a delicious pub style meal - creamy angel hair pasta with king prawns to be exact! Yummo! .... Oh, and I'm pleased to inform my feet didn't hurt one bit! Thanks to my new Frankie wedges by Tony Bianco, these babies got me through the day - sans blisters and burning soles. A win in my eyes! ;)


Check it, there's no jockey riding on horse number 2!! Crazy!
