2011 Frocktober

And so it begins for another year... another Frocktober.

October 1 happened to be AFL Grand Final day and a return to winter weather. I did have high hopes of being uber organised and having all my outfits sorted. I even day-dreamed of sourcing some dresses for stores and local designers. Of course, I didn't do any of that. In fact I woke up in a "what-am-I-going-to-wear" panic on Saturday. It was a bleak, cold and rainy 13 degree day in Melbourne. 

So what's a gal to do?

Head to her local patisserie for a delicious brunch and hide away from all the football hoopla by bunkering down in a cinema for a teen flick. With a twinge of shame, I'll admit I loved Monte Carlo!! PG-rated goodness and sweetness. So thank you Chez Dre, Selena Gomez and @marcusmoments for a totally grand-final-free day.

I started Frocktober with my go-to casual look that you may have seen last year (heaven forbid - repeats).

What I wore: Angel style frock (purchased somewhere in Ireland), camel-coloured coat with hood (from The Coatman, Elsternwick), green tights (from Topshop), silver heels (op-shop), twisted scarf (hand-made), black handbag (gift from Vintage Princess) and black umbrella (borrowed but never returned ... oops).

First day of outfits down and a month of me asking for $$ begins. Please head over to and give generously to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

After all, it's a frocking good cause. :)

    Love your Facebook page. I look forward to being inspired by your outfits, especially as I keep having I-have-nothing-to-wear moments every morning ;)
