2010 Christmas Polo at Werribee Mansion

Remember how feeling warm mud squelching through your tiny toes was a simple childhood pleasure? It turns out not much changes, even when you are meant to be a “grown up” or a sophisticated socialite. A torrential, unyielding downpour turned yesterday’s Christmas Polo at Werribee Mansion into a lawn more suited to a hippy-esque music festival than a chic social event.

Yet I admire Melbourne’s eternal optimism. Ignoring the “severe thunderstorm warning” and “flash floods possible; seriously you guys!” signs glaring at us along highway, the polo set still persisted in turning out in their seasonal finest.

Sheltering in the green apple and white blossom-laden marquee of our gracious hosts Laurent Perrier and Albert Park Hotel, the champagne kept our festive spirits sparkling. Huddling under umbrellas (and giggling as we became progressively more drenched by tropical rain), we turned our sights away from the horses and mallets digging up divots on the turf to what defines good polo style. We spyed some great accessories, though streamlined gumboots and riding-style boots were obviously the most practical accessory of the day.
