Let’s get frocked for the last 10 days of Frocktober 2016!
Frocktober 2016 wearing Portmans
An oldie from the wardrobe archives, teamed with Topshop suede loafers
Frocktober 2016 wearing Three Parsons
For a cooler day, I teamed my Three Parsons zebra dress with Bella Bodies tights, Topshop loafers, and the gorgeous Indigo Tassel scarf from Ruby & Lilli. Mimco shades and Michael Kors Ava satchel gifted by Shopbop
Frocktober 2016 wearing Boom Shankar
I just adore this frock. Loosely fitted, gingham, cap sleeves and hand embroidered pink daisies. Teamed with Adidas Superstars, Mimco shades and polkadot chambray hairbow.
Frocktober 2016 wearing Timeless by Vanessa Tong
I popped out for morning coffee with my gorgeous girl, and popped into Liana at Leichhardt MarketPlace. I treated myself to a divine flamingo print frock, and this lovely one nearly made it into my wardrobe too! This is the same style as the Little Party Dress frock I wore last week to wander around the markets with the Welshman.
Frocktober 2016 wearing Caroline Morgan
Oh hai there flamingos! I’ve gone all matchy matchy with According to Alana flamingo hairbow with the Caroline Morgan dress I bought the day before. Superstars got another run #seewhatIdidthere
Frocktober 2016 wearing Motto
How pretty is this gorgeous new season Slub Splendour frock? It was a lovely gift from Motto. It’s just so pretty! Look at the draped sleeves and double peplum hem. Oh and the floral print obvs!
I teamed it with nude Ziera sandals and a hot pink Oroton silk scarf worn as a hairbow.
Frocktober 2016 wearing Leona Edmiston
I thrifted this Leona Edmiston Ruby frock from Vinnies recently. I upped the girly factor with Eb & Ive rose gold earrings, kindly gifted by Anchor & Stone and a super pretty rose quartz necklace by Blush & Co, plus my Michael Kors Ava ladybag.
Frocktober 2016 | wearing Lillianna Plus
Frocks and physio appointments arent necessarily a match made in heaven, so I teamed a fun pair of printed activewear tights from Boohoo FIT with a classic black jersey dress kindly gifted by Lillianna Plus. Dion Lee for Target skater kicks and DKNY denim jacket completed my look.
Frocktober 2016 wearing Leona Edmiston
Woohoo! Date night! Boyo had a sleepover with his bestie, and the Welshman and I headed out for an early dinner at Fish & Co, at the hipster destination du jour, Tram Sheds Harold Park. Then we headed over to Giant Dwarf theatre in Redfern to catch Wil Anderson’s improv series, Whatchu Talkin’ ‘Bout Wil? The man can do no wrong. I luff him!
Frocktober 2016 | wearing Country Road
Love this cleverly cut Country Road dress. The cowl neck even has a little weight attached so it sits perfectly. Teamed with my go to nude Ziera sandals.
Frocktober 2016 | wearing Verily
The weather turned it on for the penultimate day of Frocktober. What a gorgeous sunny day it was! Perfect for a flattering day dress by Verily. Love the colour – rather fond of the flattering cut too!
Frocktober 2016 | wearing Diane Freis
I had to make a statement for the final day of Frocktober. Vintage Diane Freis designer goodness, complete with micropleats and maximum volume, mad florals and vivid colours said it all for me!
I teamed it with super cute red patent FRANKiE4 sandals, a print clash Leona Edmiston fabric belt (a $5 bargain from their vintage store), vintage sterling silver dichroic glass drops and my favourite Mimco shades.
I like big frocks and I cannot lie!
Frocktober 2016 | most popular frocks
As voted by Instagram likes, here are my top six frocks of Frocktober 2016.
- Top L-R Three Parsons, Shabby Sisters, Little Party Dress
- Bottom L-R Shabby Sisters, Passion Q, Magnolia Vintage
So, I just have to say this. I’m super proud of myself for frocking up every single day. I actually wore 34 dresses in 31 days!
Every day, I got up, made up, frocked up because my autoimmune disease won’t kill me, but one Australian woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer.
Frocktober is so much more than just pretty frocks. Frocktober is about making noise and raising funds to support Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation’s work into an early detection test.
