Frocktober Day 1 | Maxi Dress Week


I just simply adore Frocktober – any excuse to wear frocks, of course.  The opportunity to wear frocks to raise money for a cause very dear to my heart makes it even sweeter.  Much more fun than Ocsober too, don’t you think?

I’ve decided to kick off Frocktober with a week’s worth of maxi dresses.  I’ve wheeled out an old favourite for Day 1.  Not only 100% cotton, but also with an 100% cotton lining.  Is there anything more unpleasant than a nasty polyester lining inside a summer dress?  I think not!

The dress is from Just Jeans, and purchased from the fabulous South Wharf DFO in Melbourne on a Xmas holiday a few years ago.  I was given $100 as a gift from my then boss, negotiated some girl shopping time and hit the shops.  For my $100 I managed to get a gorgeous Country Road leather belt, this Just Jeans dress, some awesome boyfriend jeans, a dress and PJs from Peter Alexander.

I’ve teamed the dress with my beloved Mox flats in Sherbet and a Trenery tan leather belt.  I’ve accessorised with pretty embellished hairclips from Anthropologie, purchased on my recent US trip.  I could move in to Anthropologie.  Just swooningly gorgeous and in exquisite taste.  By which, of course, I mean I liked every single thing in the shop.
