Fascinators are Fun!
Dress by Willow; Shoes by Nine West

Can you believe how massive our fascinators are? They're the most ridiculous hats on earth!!

I have been in Australia for about 8 months now and shamefully have not been sharing the amazing Aussie fashion I have got to witness and experience here. The horse races are fashion prime time. It is the equivalent to going to the ballet in New York. Everyone puts on their best and has a fabulous time. Of course this is Australia so most people are trashed by the end of the day and so are their clothing. Aussies like to get their booze on! Don't we all?

My dress above I got from Australian label Willow. It has been my favorite label here so far. The tailoring and fabrics are wonderful, and as you know from my obsession with the Olsen Twins, those are my two top priorities when shopping. My other priority is of course to have heaps of fun! Aussie fashion is all about fun: bold colours, peek-a-book skin, sky high heels, over the top bling! It is uber feminine and very sexy. In fact, some of the clothing pieces I've bought here, I will be shy to wear back home! There is definitely a different standard for flashing flesh over here.

Posted above are my favorite looks from the big annual horse racing event The Melbourne Cup, along with some photos of my Aussie girlfriends and myself at a different horse racing event held in Randwick, Sydney.
