OOTD: Melbourne Cup

November 1st was Melbourne Cup, and even though we couldn't get to the races, some girlfriends and I dolled up, placed a few bets and had a high tea!


 
(okay I know I have thongs on- all my heels are in storage- BUT it wasn't a huge fashion sin as we were just hanging at home ;)


I unfortunately didn't win anything- but some of other girls placed the lucky bet for Dunaden! I did however indulge in our high tea goodies including home-made scones, caramel tarts, bruschetta and chocolate dipped strawberries! Plus Nicole's awesome fruit punch- omnomnom! (as a side note- I am crazily hooked on my Instagram Iphone app!)


Bec, Libby, Nicole and I enjoying our punch post the main race! Libby is taking one for the team and drinking from the punch bowl ;)


Dress: Crossroads

I know I've been swamping my OOTD posts with Crossroads lately- but I am just so in love with them and their sales have been so awfully tempting! Anyway, this dress rocks! I love the deep ruffle neckline and ruffle flutters- bliss! :)

  16. adorable dress! it looks great on you!

    also, we call thongs here in the US flip flops, and thongs to us are the skimpy underwear garments, so when I first read this I was like "wait, what?! she took pictures of her underwear?!" before I realized it was your shoes! haha.. gotta love learning all the lingo from you!

  17. I really love this dress, it has a great shape and you look super cute in it. I'm guilty of wearing thongs/flip flops almost all Summer and Spring long. I know they are bad for your feet and not very stylish but they are so easy and comfortable. I get made fun of for it quite frequently actually.

    Mmm high tea goodies! Looks/sounds like a fabulous time and wow at that huge punch glass haha.
