melbourne cup picks

It's that time of year again, the Melbourne Cup! And today we have what is becoming a bit of a tradition on the 'i do' it yourself blog, our cup picks - for hats, headbands and fascinators that is. Firm favourites for the races and weddings. We love putting this collection together, partly because of all the great designs we find and partly because we just like making racing puns. Im sure you're all chomping at the bit to see what we've found this year so without any further ado...
