Fashion - good and bad at Melbourne Cup (pictures)
Tuesday, November 05, 2013
Today - the" race that stops a nation " literally - was run - the 2013 Melbourne Cup !!
It is a holiday in Melbourne Australia but everywhere else thoughout the country people watch it on TV, and many thousand dollars are bet on the winner - and many have Melbourne Cup parties - and the day is an excuse to "dress up" - both good and bad can be seen!! Its a good example of how we do things "down under"!!
And there was a horse race - actually 10 races - and, for the record, it was won by Damian Oliver on Fiorente, trained by Gai Waterhouse.
I was working and didn't see the race. I put in a for few dollar sweeps but my brumbies are still running, lol. Did you have a win? Thank you for sharing the fashion. I love Jen's dress - she slways looks so spot on. Now about Brynne Edelson, not sure of that one. Ah well there's always next year for a win. 1081 days ago
SLACHETKA103145 for sharing these pictures! I always enjoy looking at the hats!!! I remember them oh so well from my childhood..pill boxes and veils! To this day I don't want to wear anything on my head and that includes wigs and scarves! (But as you know I have to now)
