The venue was perfect, the weather screamed spring and we were ready for some pre-Cup day action.
Hat action, that is.
Buderim milliner Sandy Aslett showcased her spring 2008 “Wot’s hot for heads” collection at her home on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon.
Guests including media, fashion designers and business women oohed and ahhed over the colourful, unique designs on show.
Once the models had finished with the hats, the back deck was desserted as guests rushed to try on their favourite piece.
And yes, more than a few will be seen trackside this Cup Day.
