If you are not in Australia you might not have heard about Melbourne cup.

I remember the first time I 'lived it', (13 years ago when I arrived in Australia!) I was wondering what was it with all the hats and with all the people being so overdressed for a week day. It is always on the first Tuesday in November and the events that lead up to the big day are referred to as 'Spring Carnival'.

I am so pleased to report that we are finally experiencing some spring/ summer weather on the West Coast.


It took me a while to discover that Melbourne Cup is actually one of the biggest social and racing events in the country. More than 100,000 people usually attend the race in Melbourne but the whole nation follows it by going to their local races or watching on TV.

It is a great opportunity for women, (and men) to dress up and have fun expressing their personalities with their outfits. 

I was invited by Channel 9 to share some tips on how to Stand out with Confidence this Melbourne Cup Day.

Whether you are in Australia or not this interview will give you some helpful tips to keep in mind for your next dressed up occasion.

I am wearing: Dress: Portmans, Necklace: a designer from Colombia, Shoes: Ninewest , Bracelets: Swarovski.
