Giddy Up for Guineas

by cecylia on October 17, 2012

BECK Caulfield Guineas Day was just incredible. After having butterflies fixed onto my skull, hubby and I headed down to Spoonbill, where The Olsen Hotel and Style Counsel hosted a delicious social breakfast to introduce Bright Young Things including Tom Riley (Pjohnson Tailors), Lisa J. Xu (Lady of Leisure Milinery), Bernadatte Alice Francis (whose MSFW graduate show we videoed here), Chelsea Bagan (Trophy Wife Nail Art), Katia Di Cresenzo, Emily Jane and Skye Stuart (Skye Isabella MUA) to a handful of fashion bloggers. It was superb to meet Lisa, an avid reader of my blog, also with a professional alter ego, and to see Katia, a lovely friend from my retail days. Needless to say, amazing things will bloom from this rendezvous, and I’ll be sure to inform you in due course. After nibbling on gourmet sweets, we galloped to the Caulfield Racecourse for some track-side action!

BECK Caulfield Guineas赛马节太棒了。蝴蝶被安装在我的头上以后,我们去Spoonbill参加了Olsen旅馆和Style Counsel举办的早餐。她们将几名英俊的设计师介绍给几位我们写博客的。设计师们包括Tom Riley (Pjohnson 裁缝),Lisa J. Xu (Lady of Leisure 头饰), Bernadatte Alice Francis (我们录影了她毕业的秀),Chelsea Bagan (奖杯妻子指甲艺术),Katia Di Cresenzo, Emily Jane和 Skye Stuart (Skye Isabella 化妆师)。我非常高兴认识Lisa,她也读我的博客,并也有自己另一行专业:放射成像。也很兴奋看到老朋友Katia。我相信很多美妙的合作会从今天开始。品尝完甜点后,我们奔腾去了 Caulfield赛马场!

Some highlights from Guineas Day: waking up to grey clouds but arriving upon a clear blue sky, hubby lending me his phone because I mindlessly left my blogging device at home, having butterflies knocked off my head (kids, this fascinator is not for the faint-headed) through cheek kissing, savouring the delicious juicy oysters served at the Pommery Pegasus Club marquee, and having my very own entourage for the Chadstone Fashion Stakes. Thank God for the perfect weather, amazing company and a fun-packed day!

Happy Hump Day lovelies!

上星期六的几个亮点:一早起来时天空满是乌云,但出门后空中没有一丝云; 我忘记了手机在家,但亲爱的丈夫将他的借给我用;这几朵蝴蝶差点从我头上飞下来(这顶头饰真不适合胆小的:),Pommery Pegasus Club帐篷招待的鲜牡蛎,和为我参加Chadstone时尚锦标喝采的拉拉队!感谢神赐给我们这么美满的一天!
