Today was the Melbourne Cup. The biggest horse race in Australia that literally stops the nation, I remember stopping class in school and everyone crowding around the television. This year (as we get a public holiday in Melbourne) we had some friends over for a BBQ and we dressed up with hats of course.
I wore the dress and hat I wore to the Melbourne Cup 5 years ago.
The hat I made myself; I bought the hat from Sportsgirl for the low, low price of $2 and did a bit of stitching and gluing and Ta-da! It matched my dress.
My dress is a Swirl dress, a super find at an American Retro shop, they had a handful of them, all dead stock and never worn!!! One of my favourite dresses.
I made some muffins for afters. These are my own concoction: blueberry, banana and walnut. Little Miss A loves them.
