Today is Melbourne Cup Day here. It is such a major event on the racing calendar that we have a public holiday in honor of the occasion. This of course means dressing up, donning an appropriate hat and placing a bet in the hopes of winning your fortune. For most of Melbourne's race going women, this is an opportunity to lash out on bad spray tans, dodgy home made fascinators and end the afternoon shoeless in the park. I, on the other hand, choose to spend today decked out in full vintage splendor, courtesy of my recent O.S trip.
Outfit Details: 1950's Black Eyelet lace dress, Teal blue slip from Anthropologie, Shoes from Luca and Marc, 1950's hat.
