If you follow my Instagram you’ll notice I’ve been donning the dresses over the last few days because I’ve decided to play along with Frocktober. Thirty one days, thirty one dresses (and no outfit repeating, I have over seventy frocks)! Rain, hail or shine. All the in the name of promoting awareness and dollars for ovarian cancer research.
Here’s a little bit more about Frocktober from the official website…
“Frocktober raises funds and awareness for ovarian cancer research, through dress-related fun! In the month of October, we encourage people all over Australia to wear frocks, make frocks, draw frocks, remember frocks and hold frock-related events in the name of this important cause.
There is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer. This Frocktober is your chance to change this story.
Instead of buying something new this Frocktober, we want you to get creative. Frocktober is about re-finding something old, borrowing from friends and family, or discovering something at the op shop. What an adventure.”
As you may have noticed I haven’t set up my own official “donation” page because I’ve decided to do things a little differently this year. For every like I receive on my thirty one Frocktober Instagram pictures I’ve decided to donate a set figure per like. The figure is not a lot but who knows how many likes I’ll receive on my snaps this month, and it’ll all add up! Hopefully I’ll get hundreds of likes, so like away friends. I’ve decided to split my donation between fellow bloggers and dress donning ladies Kimba of KimbaLikes and Vicki of The Fashionable Mum at the end of the month. To follow their Frocktober journey’s pop over to their blogs.
Keep track of my dress-wearing via my Instagram profile or #frocktobertheillusivefemme and if you want to donate to cancer research there are so many ladies involved – you might even know one yourself!
Are you participating in Frocktober?
PS – I don’t think I’ve shaved my legs this often in the last three months. Haha!
PPS – Big smooches to E and my friend K for their daily snaps of my dresses!
