On Day 6 of Frocktober 2016 I went all Orphan Annie in this cute dress from Steady Clothing. The label on it says “Rock Steady” which made me feel like this: maxresdefaultWhich is clearly ridiculous in this frock, when I look more like this:


I wore the frock with these amazing shoes from BAIT footwear (so many good shoes!), a belt from Kitty Deluxe, and a tiny Veronica Dearly pin commandments pin.

Yesterday I sent out an email to some people at work inviting them to support Frocktober, and this morning I received a very generous donation from the lovely Trish. As you can see, she is totally stylin’ in her fuchsia tights and that chunky flower necklace.

Both reminded me of how worthwhile it is to support research into ovarian cancer, and I’m glad that Frocktober isn’t just a frivolous piece of fun with frocks, but a campaign that could make a serious difference in people’s lives and families.

As well as the donation from Trish, I also received donations from Alex, Elise, Arlo and Vivien, and Emily, Cheryl and always-fashionable Lachlan, giving my total a very healthy boost. Thank you all for supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. That donation page again is: https://frocktober2016.everydayhero.com/au/oilyshoes

Gotta go!
