I love the white easter bonnet in the front row! On a grwon woman. They were much braver sartorially back then wren't they! It always annoys me how small hats in op-shops are. It's like only people with small heads dontate to op-shops or something? However when you look at that picture you notice the hats are just perched, not pulled down. Hence the need for hat pins presumably... Anyhow cup day aye? Hope you had a flutter and won big! x
Oh heck they all look so damn marvelous!I want to wear hats more damned often... nowadays everyone is just walking around with plain old heads. =p ahhaah
i think i have a few of those hats in my shop he he he....Leah x
I really like two hats in that picture...The red 'paperboy' style cap towards the back left and the other pink clad lady in the front row - the one not smoking, with the black necklace. So swish, both of them.And notice how on-trend all the sunglasses are, in terms of today's fashions! Amazing. And the cats eye glasses too. Blinking marvellous.Oh I could stare at this photo for ages, picking out things. :)Also, Kylie - the tapestries you sent me have arrived. They are utterly delicious and I cannot wait to get stuck in and start making things with them.Thank you so so much. You are a star.xx
heehee, not sure about the bonnets on grown women, but some fab accessories there all the same. Also liking the sunnies.
oohh i adore that picture there is so much lovelyness going on and just look at all those fantastic colours ;-)) dee xx
Looks like Mrs Slocombes sister amd sure Helga V would love that pic.Nice to see hardly any black not like these days.
I love the lady in white behind fag ash Lil. Classic picture, needs a caption.
Great photo! Love the hats - some are very elegant, but some remind me of those swimming caps we used to wear!Liz @ Shortbread & Ginger
What a fab pic - I reckon that lady's name is Bev and she makes a killer scone. Sarah xxx
Ha ha. The woman in pink is hilarious. Is she exhaling? What a character. The poor lady behind her.
What a gem of a photo. So much social comment. It doesn't seem like that long ago but so much has changed. There are a lot of ladies gloveless or clutching gloves. Everyone so groomed and following the social norms. I miss the days when women didn't show bra straps or knickers for all to see.
The "Members' enclosure, Melbourne Cup 1968" is stunning! So recent yet so different in terms of how fashions have changed!
