Day 2210 - Black and White Melbourne Cup Day

It's all about the black and white today.

Huge decisions over which Sash & Belle handbag to take to the track
I know, I know.  Black and white is supposed to be on Derby Day and Melbourne Cup is supposed to be all spring time colourful and festive, but the entire Langdown clan are dressing in the basics today as we head to the track.

My ensemble for today is completely 100% about the fascinator.

Beautiful headpiece created by Rockstars and Royalty

I was gifted this gorgeous headpiece by a lovely lady called Kym who won it at the Dress Me Up charity event I was involved in last year.

After owning it for a year she decided she was never going to attend an event where she could wear it, so after I ooh'ed and aah'ed over it (and offered to hire it off her) she left it on my doorstep one day with a beautiful note telling me how much she looked forward to seeing me wear it one day soon.

So that's what I'll be doing! I'll be wearing this amazing fascinator designed by local fashion designer Vicky from Rockstars and Royalty.

I'll post photos of our Canberra racetrack adventures tomorrow.

For now though I give you more black and white.  This time it's about the magpie family living in our yard.  This gorgeous bub was presented to us by its very proud parents yesterday.

How cute!

The new addition at Langdown Land

I can't chat now. I've got more black and white to get on top of before we head to the track.

It's the black and white of filling in forms. So many forms.  Gotta love forms ...

Happy Melbourne Cup day.

Whether it be black and white, or colourful, I hope it's a good one! 

PS Derek and I met on Melbourne Cup day at Canberra racetrack 21 years ago.  Happy Meet-a-versary husband! Our relationship is anything but black and white.
