As you may know I am a bit of an old fashioned kinda girl and it shows in my designs….oh to be back in the day when you were considered undressed if you went out without a hat or gloves. It seems anything goes these days in fashion and etiquette and more often than not, women are sporting pants over a dress.
Well, I am here to change that (well in my own world anyway) and for a very good cause, I am challenging myself to wear a dress everyday for the whole month of October…..BRING ON FROCKTOBER!!
In Australia, 1 woman dies every 10 hours from Ovarian Cancer. At present ovarian cancer is commonly diagnosed at advanced stage with only 20-30% of women surviving beyond five years, compared to more that 90% when the disease is detected and treated early.
A pap smear does not detect ovarian cancer.
The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) is Australia’s pre-eminent body supporting ovarian cancer research and dedicated into proper research for early detection into this not very well understood disease and support for those suffering with the disease.
So, this is where you come in…..Head over to my support page and give a donation and I will reward you with photos of my daughters and I “rocking the frock” for the 31 days of October. (I’m now on Instagram too, you can follow me here.)
I have decided to set another challenge on top of that for myself and make every dress, my daughters and I wear!!
I am currently working on some upcycled ball dresses, so imagine me grocery shopping in one of those numbers , I am heading off on a weeks holiday in the middle of this too, so THAT is going to be interesting (hubby won’t want to be seen with me – I had better make sure I take my craziest frocks for that haha) and don’t forget, my Dowerin Field Day dresses will definitely be making an appearance (now where can I wear my wedding dress, and the barbed wire bustle?? haha) and the dresses from my collection and the little girls version of my collection as well as many upcycled pieces you have not seen yet …..EXCITED YET!!
Show me your support here
I am also working on a local FASHION FROCKTAIL NIGHT to conclude this event, would you be interested??
More details on that later, in the mean time, get donating and I will start dusting off my glamour heels to go with my Frocks!!
You will see me soon!!
