Frocktober 2014 | Days 1 to 5

It’s Frocktober time again!  I’ve committed myself to wearing 31 dresses in 31 days to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation for Frocktober.

Committed myself? I might need committing at the end of this!

Kimba Likes Frocktober - wearing a Verily maxi dress for Day 1 2014

Day 1 of Frocktober dawned a little cool and was the perfect occasion to rock my Verily^ jersey maxi dress.  So warm and snuggly and uber flattering.  I teamed it with Gorman sandals, and an arm party.

Kimba Likes Frocktober - for day 2 2014 I wore a vintage 90s dress with Ziera wedges, Trenery belt and Anizoe clutch

A 90s (maybe late 80s?) vintage frock was the order of Day 2 of Frocktober.  I teamed it with Ziera wedge sandals, Trenery tan belt and Anizoe* clutch.

For dinner with the Blokefolk at our favourite Penny Lane Rozelle, I added Sambag flats and Katherine coat with retro cute styling.

Kimba Likes Frocktober - wearing a Country Road jersey dress with Burberry ballets and a vintage souvenir scarf as a hairbow for Day 3 2014

For Day 3 of Frocktober, I wore the most comfortable dress in gorgeous ink navy by Country Road.  Soft and flowing and uber flattering, I think I need to track down this dress in more colours!  I teamed it with a Jet Empire arm party, Burberry ballet flats and a vintage Kiwiana souvenir scarf.

Kimba Likes Frocktober - wearing Bohemian Traders Ahoy Striped Dress with an Oroton scarf hairbow, Gorman sandals and Red Phoenix Emporium necklace for Day 4 2014

La la love my Bohemian Traders^ Ahoy V Neck Striped Dress that I donned for Day 4.  Worked back with white Gorman sandals and a red, white and blue Oroton silk scarf to play up the nautical theme.  A gorgeous Red Phoenix Emporium semiprecious stone necklace completes my look.

Kimba Likes Frocktober - wearing Monsoon silk dress with New Look booties from Payless Shoes and Popbasic clutch for Day 5 2014

Day 5 found us visiting the Opera House to see The 26 Storey Treehouse with Boyo.  My review?  Way better than The 13 Storey Treehouse!  I wore a Monsoon silk dress with New Look booties from Payless Shoes, and carried a Popbasic clutch in latte leather.

Please donate

I know there are a lot of worthy causes, and demands on our charity dollars, but I’d really like you to donate any spare cash to Frocktober’s fundraising for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.  Ovarian cancer is the silent killer.  There is no early detection test.  Let’s help fund research to change that!

Click here to help. It’s a well known fact that donating to charity makes you better looking (1) and gives you thinner thighs (2).

(1) It’s true!  Everyone knows that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  Audrey Hepburn herself said so.

(2) Sorry, I lied about the thighs.  But who wants a thigh gap anyway?  Thighs that meet in the middle just take you one step closer to being a mermaid.
