Mad About the Hat Day, Rosehill Racecourse

Apropos of Melbourne Cup, and my last post having no pictorial content, I present to you a race-related story from the “Mad About the Hat” day last year at Rosehill Racecourse.

Some of us at tables that day were milliners, and judges went about checking us all out, including our headwear. This is my effort, a mini-topper in purple sinamay with black venise lace accent. My purple dress was from Seduce, the necklace from Diva, and brooch and scarf (worn as a bolero) from Myer.

Meanwhile we sipped our champagne, ate our fabulous food, and bet and won and lost on the gee-gees.

Various ladies made it to the finals, but a few had purchased their headwear.  I was one of those who had made her own hat, which gave me some kudos. I came runner-up (perhaps it was too much purple for them?), and won a big basket of Nivea goodies.

So I didn’t win anything in the Melbourne Cup yesterday; I still have plenty of Nivea products that I’m working my way through! I really must get back to the racecourse – it’s such a fun day out, and lovely to have a chance to dress up 🙂
