OOTD: The Race That Stops The Nation

Today was Melbourne Cup Day in Australia.  This is a public holiday in Victoria and a non-official public holiday for many other places.  Our office basically closes for the afternoon and other offices have at least a lunch or something.  Most offices have a sweepstakes draw as well.  Our office dress code is very casual - jeans, shorts, t-shirts - and so for Melbourne Cup we usually dress up.  Even the boys dress up.  I bought a couple of dresses from ASOS a few months ago that I haven't worn yet and was planning on wearing one of those, but unfortunately they don't fit properly so I need to get them taken in at the back or something.  So I had to switch to my back-up plan.

Shoes: Hush Puppies
Bracelet: Handmade
Necklace: Store on Mt Tamborine

I love this dress and I've featured it here before.  I feel like it has shrunk vertically a little bit - it seems shorter than it was the first time I wore it - but I still think it looks great.
