It’s been a week of turmoil here at the House of Sasha and finally the blog is back up after some technical issues with my hosting site. I think for any website or business owner when your baby is MIA from the World Wide Web, they would be worried sick and hysterical too. Anyway it’s back to business for this baby and I’m glad all systems are back to normal.
A couple of weeks ago the Spring Racing Carnival came to an end and I’ve been wanting to do a wrap up ever since. This sporting event that happens once a year in Melbourne, is one of the biggest horse racing event ever. I would love to go one of these years just for the experience but up to this point I have never been. This year marks a historical victory as Michelle Payne, becomes the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup (she also happens to come from Ballarat- the city which I live in! )
Here are just some of my favourite looks from the Derby Day, Cup and Oaks Day events. For me, the fashion and street style looks are a great forecast for Australian fashion as the summer begins and so do the new trends emerge. A wide array of different textured Laces can be seen throughout with wide brimmed hats and modern fascinators. There have also been quite a few bespoke dresses which shows the effort that was made and put outfits for the season. Be prepared to be blown away!

Derby Day is themed black and white and silhouettes tend to be a bit more sophisticated and glamourous.

The Cup is the big race that stops the entire nation and the fashion on the field is nothing less than that. The themes are a bit more bolder than the other cup days with more colour and individualistic styles are evident.

Oaks Day is essentially ladies day and this year was full of feminine styles and French lace in sweet hues.
Hope you enjoyed this fun post and Happy Friday xxxx
