Proclamation Day Part 2

Now, as I mentioned in my previous post, Wednesday night was the Proclamation Day celebration at Newstead House. After dressing at work and squeezing into a Taxi, Bec and I made our way over to meet up with Erin and her family. We took a bunch of photos and received a lot of compliments for our outfits. Then we were alowed inside the house, and I have to say WOW. What a stunningly beautiful home, and best of all the let us into the roped off sections for some photos with a professional photographer.

Overall I had a great time. The weather was beautiful with a nice cool breeze (great when you are wearing a heap of layers). I am really looking forward to our next events. And I am really happy with how my outfit turned out. I even got a compliment from the daughter of a milliner about my bonnet. A huge compliment, but I wouldn't want her to look too closely. I am looking forward to going again next year. And it was fabulous to have a christmassy outfit to go along with it.


  1. WOW Mel - you all looked fantastic!!! I am so happy you had a great time.

  2. Your photos turned out so well - you two could have stepped out of a Dickens Christmas Card, or perhaps you should be one of those Arnott's Biscuit Tin illustrations....esp the one of you peeking through the window for Santa....
    I look so plain and drab against you both - mental note - making bigger sleeves...

  3. I see ankle p*rn! Great photos of some fabulous costumers!
