October is fast approaching (I know right, where did the year go), and from now on the month will no longer be known as its given name. Because October is Frocktober month. Frocktober raises funds and awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. The original Frocktober challenge is to wear a dress every day for the month of October, but you can mix it up any way you like! Here’s a little bit of info from the Frocktober 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. It’s a Frockin’ good cause.
I’ll be participating once again, but this time I’ll be an ambassador for Frocktober. For the month of October I’ll be sharing my daily dresses via social media and hoping to raise some much needed funds for the cause. Women’s cancer happens to run in my family so this cause is very close to my heart, and I hope everyone gets involved this October so one day we will be able to detect ovarian cancer in the early stages and potentially save lives. If you want to donate pop over to my donation page. I’ve joined the Kimba Likes Frocktober team this year alongside other fancy ladies ready to get frocked up for the charity and fingers crossed we raise a bunch. Every dollar helps!
Follow my Frocktober journey via my Instagram page (@theillusivefemme) and please get involved! I would love to see you rocking the frock this October. Don’t forget to hashtag #Frocktober2015!
Will you be frocking up this Frocktober?
Ps – Here are a few snaps from last year. Guaranteed you will spot some of these frocks again this year!
