A Berry Delightful Oaks Day

by cecylia on November 9, 2012

It’s been a surreal 3 days. My first time at the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Cup Day I was completely starstruck to see Rose Byrne, overwhelmed to meet Mischa Barton, and delighted to hobnob with a fine crowd in the Emirates marquee. I woke up the next day to tweets and Facebook updates about my photo (taken by the insanely talented Jesse Maricic of Raww) featured on Vogue.com.au.

Still bleary-eyed from blogging, I dashed to the filming of the final parade of Project Runway yesterday. So lucky already, I could’t believe it when I arrived to find that they had reserved first-row seats for us! What a visual treat. So much youth and talent, I nearly cried. Can’t reveal much about the show as we have to watch it in its entirety on Nov 19th 8:30 on Arena, but I’ve picked my favourite :) And seeing Megan Gale’s outfit made me want to befriend my juicer…

Yesterday, Crown Oaks Day was an extra icing on the cake. Although hubby couldn’t come as work beckoned him and afterall, it was Ladies’ Day, I had an absolute ball. Mena Suvari is even prettier in real life! The competition at Fashion on the Fields is so fierce! And I can eat 10 mini lemon meringue tarts in a minute! Sorry juicer, you’re so good to me but I’m just not that into you…

我刚过了令人难以置信的三天。今年是我第一次拜访墨尔本赛马节。墨尔本杯那天我经历了追星族的感觉,影星Rose Byrne真美。好兴奋遇见Mischa Barton,整天在Emirates帐篷里享受了他们的好客招待。第二天起来后朋友们在 tweet 和 Facebook 上告诉我我的照片登上了Vogue.com.au

写完了博客,还睡眼惺忪地,我跑去了观看Project Runway电视剧的最后的一场猫步演出。能参加我已经非常高兴,但当我到了以后我才发现他们安排我们做在第一排!真是一场视觉盛宴,服装设计师们有青春和才华,其中有一位的服装太令我感动了。我不能怎么多说因为我们得在十一月十九日八点半在 Arena电台看结果!见了Megan Gale穿的裙子我真想和我的榨汁机交朋友。。。

昨天,皇家Oaks Day 又是额外的锦上添花。我的丈夫得上班不能陪我但挺巧的,因为Oaks Day是“女士们天”!今天我学到: 影星Mena Suvari令人惊叹地漂亮。Myer的服装比赛竞争好激烈!还有,我能在一分钟内吞下十个柠檬酥皮馅饼!对不起榨汁机,但我就不那么喜欢你…

Alannah Hill fascinator / Paula Walden earrings / FCUK dress as top (similar one here)/ Vintage shades (similar styles here), belt & bag / Yeojin Bae skirt (cute one here too) / Anne Klein watch / Hermes ring / Habbot pumps

Another last-minute outfit, I was so happy to find random pieces in my closet that completed this magenta, flamingo and tangerine get-up. So comfortable too, I almost broke into an Irish jig when the music and wines egged me on. Think I’m going to pull out my Corrs album as I suffer major withdrawal symptoms from the magnificent Irish-themed Emirates marque this weekend. I’m vetting again Saturday and Sunday. Who doesn’t work on their 5th wedding anniversary right? Have an awesome weekend lovelies and I leave you with the best…

这又是一套没怎么准备的服装。还好家里正好有些紫色,粉红色和橘黄色的衣服。非常舒服,这套衣服让我能跑也能跳。这个周末虽然是我们的五周年结婚纪念日,我又得在兽医上班。有可能我会遭受重大的戒断症状,因为Emirates的爱尔兰主题帐篷太棒了,我得发掘出来我多年每听的Corrs CD…祝你一个愉快的周末!

Love this bright outfit! The patent clutch was a really good choice with it :) The blue backdrop is perfect for photos as well, makes the colours pop even more.

Theo is so cute too! Did he get to go to the races?

Hope you don’t have to work too much this weekend, shame you can’t enjoy your anniversary!
