Eighteen days into Frocktober and no frock fatigue in sight. The glorious weather has definitely helped. This week it’s either been black and white or really bright.
A work day (note the heels) but no reason not to keep a bit of colour.
This is a lovely dress, but I wanted to dress it down a little bit so I wore this top over and added some arm candy. And isn’t amazing what a little lippy can do for a girl?
I felt a bit clever with this one. The dress underneath is a fairly dressy halter neck. The top over is a Salita Matthews number that originally belonged to the gorgeous and generous Sarah. I pulled the halter neck up through the top and tied it up to give a pussy-bow blouse effect.
The knotted maxi dress strikes again! The hair flick is courtesy of a three minute photo timer and my racing for it.
Sometimes kismet comes to a wardrobe. The necklace was a gift from my sister in law some Christmases ago and the dress is from Witchery (last summer). They are the perfect ombrè match. (And yes, my sister in laws have amazing taste)
This lovely maxi dress is so easy to wear. It was actually a hostess gift when I had a Saju Boutique party some time ago. It’s one of those dresses that you can wear anywhere and feel comfortable.
I have been itching to wear this since I finished it on Wednesday. A dear friend gave me a whole bunch of vintage patterns and this was one of them – very 1980s! I spent a lovely day sewing with my mum. I feel a bit guilty though – she wanted to sew too but she spent a fair bit of time with little E.
Why all the dresses?
The aim of Frocktober is raise money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer.
Ovarian Cancer is sometimes called as a “silent-killer” as its symptoms are vague and often strike without warning. There is no early detection test. Consequently ovarian cancer is often diagnosed in its late stages and only 20%-30% of women will survive beyond five years of diagnosis. In comparison, survival rates increase to 80-100% when ovarian cancer is detected and treated early.
I’d love you to support me in the quest for early detection here.
I am posting each outfit daily to instagram, with the #Frocktober2015 hashtag.
