All frocked up and ready to go to the races. I'm wearing an old Allison Wonderland dress, and one of my fascinators (not the one that's in the shop though, I made this one to keep). These 3 photos were taken by husband.
these last 8 photos were all taken on my iphone with the hipstamatic app
This year our anniversary fell on Easter Sunday so we decided to celebrate a day early, which meant that we could actually go out. We spent the day doing one of husband's favourite things: going to the races. I don't love the races, but I do enjoy getting dressed up for the event. It's such an old fashioned activity - men wear suits and ties, and women wear dresses, high heels and the obligatory fascinator/hat. And then you all stand around and judge each other :) It's like a fashion show!
After all of that excitement, husband surprised me by taking me to a beautiful restaurant where we had had a very special date a few years ago. We enjoyed a beautiful meal overlooking the opera house and the harbour bridge, and toasted our two years of marriage with champagne and wine. Anniversaries are the best.
