Cleopatra comin at ya

Sadly no photos of my (handmade) costume. I forgot to take any, and I stopped taking photos of the party after the first 10 minutes or so. However I did manage to capture the best costumes of the night, Matt in his gold lame bodysuit and Ryan in his Borat-esque mummy costume.

In other news the deadline for the Melbourne's GPO $500 shopping spree competition has been extended. Entries now close at 1pm Thursday 15th October and we will announce the winners at the end of the day.

Some points to note about the competition:

* Both Guys and Girls can enter to win.

* The look can be an old or new photo of you in your best Spring Racing outfit - or even a Polyvore, Photoshopped montage or a real outfit you have put together laid out or on a mannequin if you are shy about putting up a photo of yourself.

* We aren't leaving the winner all dressed up with nowhere to go; the prize also includes a double pass to the Cox Plate. (as well as the $500 GPO voucher of course)

So go and add your entry on the GPO facebook fan page quicksmart! There is $500 at stake after all. Remember to say you want "Fashion Hayley" to style you.



  1. I just entered the comp. Here's hoping we get to go shopping :). I wrote:

    I would LOVE to go shopping with Fashion Hayley please. This is a look I helped style for my sister at a Geelong Charity races event. I took advantage of the shoulder trend with this Zimmermann jacket and paired it with a Zayt skirt, Mimco clutch and... a flower headpiece made by myself. Here's hoping I get to go shopping crazy-style with Hayley!

  2. I just entered the GPO competition. Here's my set:

    I wanted to use the black "Petal to the Metal" necklace (which I just ordered for my Year 12 Graduation...epic excitement right there) but couldn't find it on Polyvore/it wouldn't upload. I wanted to create something grungey and textured and juxtapose that with a bit of femininity through the pale pink dress and the bow, which is also being used as a fascinator of sorts.

    I know that the look isn't conventionally 'Spring Racing' which is generally a little bit more polished and conservative, but the look is intended to be young, fun and fashion forward (for the races anyway).


  3. hey fash h, i'm apparently going to be in an article on melb street fashion about australian bloggers. you didn't have anything to do with that, did you? xo


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
