cup day...

It's Melbourne Cup day today in Australia. 

Being in Singapore, today I am missing the work Melbourne Cup lunches, sweepstakes, having the afternoon off, my mum who used to always win and come home with a meat tray and of course all the pretty hats and fascinators.

Frocking up and going to the races is quite a big deal in Oz.  I haven't really seen it replicated to the same degree at the races in Hong Kong and Singapore where it is kept pretty casual. 

If I were going to the races today, I would look to Alannah Hill for some gorgeous inspiration - florals, brights, bows, polka dots, cute little hats.
