There are very few times when I actually head into the city. For one, it's rather far away and two, I have no idea how to get anywhere without a map! So I tend to look more like a tourist than a Melbournian. And don't even get me started on how terrified I am at trying to figure out trams.
So my attempt to catch the 12pm show went array. Let's just cut a long story short and say that I mistook the City Square for Federation Square ... and showed up to an empty stage. I turned it into a positive by Elephant Spotting for Melbourne Zoo (I found five of them - but I want to get photos of them all) before finally making the 1pm show.
I got a photo of every outfit! I do have close ups but as this entry is so PHOTO HEAVY already, I opted not to share them. Colour, colour and more colour is on the cards for Spring Racing. Pastels, Neons, Lace, Jumpsuits and even the Pants Suit are set for 2012.
