IMG_90032 It's always nice to have a public holiday to celebrate the Melbourne Cup. Never having been one for the races before, it was nice to be in the Birdcage among some of our city's best dressed ladies and gents. We snapped Dasha Gold (the Trendspotter), Charlotte Bridgeman (Winston & Willow), Jasmin Howell (Friend in Fashion), Gemma Watts (Couturing), Megan Gale (model) & Bree Laughlin (model); and even managed to be photographed ourselves (!!) by Street SmithCouturing, Myer and ELLE Australia.

Creepiest moment: witnessing a girl passing out in line, with her eyes remaining open the whole time Most bizarre moment: Shane Warne realising I was taking a photo of him, and turning around conveniently so I could get a better look. #zinc Best marquee: Johnnie Walker Funniest moment: trying to out-Whitney each other during "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" Best decision: leaving before the rush, and catching an Uber home - even though it was basically a ute, it was equipped with Minties and water bottles. The perfect chariot ride home.
