MELBOURNE CUP FASHION RECAP

The race that stops the nation…

Melbourne Cup is Australia’s best known horse racing event which is held on the first Tuesday of November, yearly. It’s also a public holiday in Victoria and is well known as “the race that stops the nation”. To be honest, I am not really interested in the horse racing debacle if you ask me.

If I remember correctly, two horses sadly died not long after the big race at last years Melbourne Cup event and as I watched the race yesterday afternoon with my colleagues on the large projector (purely to bludge if I must admit) I couldn’t help but imagine how much pain the horses have to endeavor to fulfill many men and female’s pleasure for the race.

Anyway I didn’t mean to get all melancholy on you, lets speed this up and get into the more lighthearted topics like fashion. – Before I proceed I might add that I’m not sure if it makes me a hypocrite to enjoy the fashion scenery which is also a huge part of the Melbourne Cup but if we are being honest here I just really needed a topic to post for Wednesday as I have been having major writers block! #letsbereal
