Melbourne Cup Carnival 2014 | Melbourne Cup

I think it's safe to say - I'm still buzzing from yesterday's Emirates Melbourne Cup. The day certainly didn't disappoint and as crazy as it sounds, it's already made me super excited for next year. 

If you follow me on insta (@vydia) you would know the highlight of my already amazing day was meeting Gigi Hadid (who I'm sure everyone was sick of me talking about on the day haha) in the Emirates Marquee, who was nice enough to chat with me and actually tell me I was her best dressed (fangirl lvl over 9000 right now).  Trust me, she is just as amazing in person.

My race day outfit was something I was looking forward to wearing the minute I saw these pieces at MBFWA. This Aje top and skirt has definitely been one of my favourite looks that I've sported recently. Pictures definitely don't do the beautiful grey toned blue floral detailing justice, I can't wait for these pieces to drop in store so you can have a look for yourself! 

Onto headwear, I absolutely adored my custom headpiece made by Lisa from Lady of Leisure Millinery. I told Lisa that I wanted a really soft, almost bridal-ly type lace piece that would wrap around the side of my head and to the back, and of course, she created just that. My The Bag Department soft blue clutch was the PERFECT accessory to finish the look and tie the whole neutral colour scheme together. 

Thank you so much to Emirates, Myer and Johnnie Walker for having me.
