21 today. 21 dresses that is. Frockstars, we’re over halfway in our Frocktober fundraising.
New here? Well, I’m wearing 31 dresses in 31 days to help raise research funds for the development of an early detection test for ovarian cancer. So far, a bunch of generous folk have contributed to the cause. This week’s special mentions include Kathy from Yin Yang Mother and my dear friend Anna. Thank you both for your donations. You’ve made my week. Here’s what made up my wardrobe this week …
Saturday 15 October
It was chore central here on Saturday, so I popped on a pinny and set to work on scrubbing the bathtub, mopping the floor and doing the laundry. This denim diva was just the ticket for a day knee-deep in elbow grease. Its origins are the same as the Pink Panther I mentioned here. Yep, it was one of three frocks I picked up for $25 at a market. By my calculations, my stocks are up.
Sunday 16 October
This frock features a plunging neckline and a light fabric which makes me think it was intended to be worn over swimwear. Nevertheless, I throw a light cami underneath and call it a frock. Please tell me I’m not the only gal who shirks convention when it comes to a frock’s original intention?
Monday 17 October
Let me begin by giving a huge shout out to my mate Renee. She accompanied me on a recent op shopping jaunt and insisted I try this frock on for size. I wasn’t immediately sold but, truth be told, I’m glad I heeded her advice. It’s so comfy to wear and those pockets, well need I say more?
Tuesday 18 October
Frockstars, if I’m honest, this one was salvaged from my ‘recycling’ pile. Yes, she’s making up the numbers for Frocktober but her days in my wardrobe really are numbered. I just don’t feel quite myself in this style.
Wednesday 19 October
I am, quite possibly, obsessed with this maxi. I’ve had this one for a while but recently I spotted it in a new print and now I can think of nothing else. Just to be clear, this is not a sponsored post but I just love, love, love this frock the most.
Thursday 20 October
This is my go-to LBD for getting out and about ASAP. Pockets. Tick. Cool fabric. Tick. No iron. Tick. I mean, really, what more could a gal want?
Friday 21 October
I rescued this frock from a car boot sale. She was crumpled up in a tired and torn cardboard box — barely detectable to the untrained eye but, me oh my, I knew that fabric had potential. Washed up and pinned up (the top is a tad too big) she scrubbed up a treat.
Frockstars, we’ve only got ten days left. If you’d like to make a donation, please visit my fundraising page. Meanwhile, thank you for your contributions and encouragement thus far. You make frocking up such fun.
Tell me, are you frocking up this weekend?
