Welcome to Frocktober 2013

Hello October Frocktober, great to see you again. Despite the weather it’s time to Frock up again. If you’ve never heard of Frocktober, check this out


This year Miss K is joining me with the dress a day….. we’ll see how long before the novelty wears off for her. I’m not instagraming my pics this year but will blog once a week to share. I’ll also keep a running total of how much I’ve raised in the posts and in my sidebar.

So day one was wet and windy but not really cold and this is what we wore.


Me – black dress by Mia Rose, black top by Emerson, leggings from Target, socks from Think Geek (Big Bang Theory Soft Kitty knee socks)
Miss K – dress & leggings from Pumpkin Patch

Day two and we got up to this

Coming to an end

I’m a little sad Frocktober has come to an end but looking forward to getting back into jeans when it’s a little cold. I’m super happy I’ve managed to raise $746 of my $1000 goal. You can still donate for another couple of weeks so yay!

Over the weekend, I held an afternoon tea to raise some more funds. Everyone who came frocked up & those that didn’t were ‘fined’. We had a great time, ate yummy food and played some fun games. There was a lucky door prize and a raffle.

I’d like to take a quick moment to thank those who donated items to the raffle:
* Pooki’s
* Amcal George Town
* my Mum (who donated heaps)

onto the final dresses……

And as week 3 comes to a close I am so really enjoying frocking up. I’m looking forward to summer and wearing dresses more often. Another THANK YOU for the donations – I’m at $300 of my $1000 goal.

So, we kicked it up a little this week and hubby played photographer for me (except for the 19th when I had a little fun). More dress recycling this week too.

According to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF), “one woman dies every ten hours from ovarian cancer in Australia.” For many women with ovarian cancer, the disease is already well advanced when they are first diagnosed. Unfortunately, there is currently no screening test for ovarian cancer.

Frocktober aims to help improve the outlook for women with ovarian cancer by supporting the quest for a suitable early detection test through fundraising for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.*

Keep up to date with my month of frocks and photos.

Still frocking

Week 2 of Frocktober is coming to a close and week 3 is starting. So far you’ve donated $175 toward my $1000 goal. THANK YOU!

This week I was a little lazy and recycled a few frocks from week 1. Like the dress by Luca & Marc, it’s paid for the whole $8 I paid for it at the local Vinnie’s (I seriously love this dress so you’ll probably see it a few more times before the end of the month).

Next week I’ll be doing something apart from selfies, just for a little variety 😉

Frocking it up–week 1

So here we are the end of week 1 of Frocktober. Didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I have but the weather has been reasonably kind (except for yesterday which was rather chilly).

I’d love it if you’d sponsor me (which you can do here) and every little bit helps. All funds raised go to Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). 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.

Early stage ovarian cancer may not have obvious symptoms but the following may occur:
* Vague abdominal pain or pressure
* Feeling of abdominal fullness, gas, nausea, indigestion – different to your normal sensations
* Sudden abdominal swelling, weight gain or bloating
* Persistent changes in bowel or bladder patterns
* Low backache or cramps
* Abnormal vaginal bleeding
* Pain during intercourse
* Unexplained weight loss
The majority of women who experience one or two of these early symptoms do not have cancer. However, it is important that you seek medical advice if the symptoms are unusual or persist. For further information, visit or call 1300 OVARIAN.

Now onto the dresses

Frocktober 2012

Yup, I’m going to take part in Frocktober this year.

For those who don’t know, wikifashion defines Frocktober as:

“Frocktober is a festive fundraising initiative aiming to raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF).Through fun – and sometimes quirky – measures, Frocktober is all about:

  • * Increasing the public’s awareness of ovarian cancer.
  • * Promoting women’s health and wellbeing.
  • * 2Celebrating the great diversity of shapes, sizes and colours women come in.

Essentially, Frocktober puts forward a challenge to girls, women and interested men far and wide:

  • To don a frock for a day, week, fortnight or a full month during October, and get sponsored for it!

So, be it borrowed, second-hand, vintage, home-made, your granny’s or that great dress you’ve just never had the right occasion to wear… get creative, get it on and get frocking with your sponsorships, all of which will be donated to the OCRF.“

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not much of a dress/skirt wearer. I would have worn trousers to my wedding if I was allowed to (glad I didn’t cause I got to buy the most gorgeous Jeannie Nitro dress to wear).

BUT as it’s helping raise funds for OCRF I’ve decided it’s a damn good cause. We’ve had Ovarian Cancer touch our family recently and anything I can do to help raise awareness about it and raise funds to help research is a good thing in my books.
SO I’m slowly collecting some dresses together – buying new ones, checking to see if old ones fit and asking around to see if anyone wants to donate a dress for me to wear.

If you’d like to donate a dress feel free to email me. I’ll have more details closer to October.
