Frocktober 2016: Vintage Love

Want to donate to Frocktober? Click here now, every dollar counts.

Hi Frock friends! If this is your first visit to the blog this month you’ll see it has been overrun by frock snaps and donation links. Why? Because every day this month I’ll be donning a frock, documenting said adventures and raising much needed dollars for Ovarian Cancer Research. For a larger explanation into Frocktober please click here. This is my third year participating in the Frocktober fundraiser, and my second year as an ambassador and face of the charity. 

Vintage tells a story. Well, not literally, but whenever I buy a vintage garment I tend to stop and think about where the piece of clothing “lived” and existed in its previous life. This vintage frock got the treatment on arrival to my wardrobe. I asked the questions, your usual “where did it come from?”, “who was the previous owner”, “what did they buy it for?” etc etc. I wanted to know the story of the frock. I wanted to learn more. Unfortunately I’ll probably never find out the origins of this vintage frock, but I do know it’s a winner for both work and play. 

Work dresses don’t have to be your usual run of the mill peplum or fitted frock, as long as they’re a respectable length with a modest neckline then they’re good to go in my opinion. This fifties style, full skirted dress is totally fine for my office. It has personality, and the print is just crazy fabulous. It almost reminds me of a picnic blanket or a table cloth – but that is why I love it. The quirky colour combo is also a lot of fun, and I know my day at wok was brightened dramatically wearing this fabulous frock! I’ve styled the dress with a cute, summery straw hat for these snaps, but for work I’ve kept it quite simple, adding a cardigan for a bit of extra warmth. You can follow my frocks daily journey via Instagram Stories.

If you want to donate to Frocktober and raise some dollars for the OCRF it’s as easy as clicking this link. Every dollar counts and will go towards discovering and building an early detection test for the horrible disease. 

Have a beautiful weekend! Don’t forget to pop by tomorrow for my next frock!

How do you feel about vintage? Have you been frocking up this month?

    Just adding that you put a lot of effort into Frocktober……you are a great ambassador for a very worthy cause.
