Melbourne Cup Day

[A backdated post! with a really boring title! have overdosed on Indian sweets and am sugar-drunk right now!]
Wore this on Melbourne Cup Day but because I was not attending a race luncheon (was at work), I toned it down...

I’m not a gambler of any monetary sort. I don’t even like horseracing unless it’s a 2 or 4 wheeler beast with horsepower... but I usually do attend race days, just for the sheer 'fabulosity' of it.  I am rather tired of how casual the world has become, making an effort seems to have become an effort and that attitude bores me.  Racegoers actually make an effort....although oh dear, people do get very Eliza Doolittle-ish...

Anyway... Cup Day is a big deal, especially and of course, in Melbourne.  In Sydney life goes on.  Twas the first time in a very long time I hadn't done something with my girls! That's okay though because I was doing something else rather exciting.  Will fill you in soon.  [I'm writing this on Friday Nov 5th and it's Diwali and I'm running late and I am lazy and busy and crazy!]   HAPPY DIWALI darlings!  A proper post on this soon.




wearing:
vinatge dress * fuschia fishnets * burgundy leather T-bar (which you can't see!) shoes * COCO LIBERACE jewellery * blue mascara. yes.

Wish you a very Happy Diwali Dusk.
I love your blue mascara. But actually could not see the T bar of your shoes. I quite like T bar shoes. Specially cos they go well with Tango.
