Hello Lovelies!

Well it’s over. It’s finished. Done. Dusted.

My first ever Frocktober. 31 Days. 31 Frocks.

An amazing Team – Style File Frocktober. So many gorgeous women coming together to raise funds and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.  Working together to help raise the money needed to develop an early detection test so women diagnosed with this awful disease have time. Time to fight. Time to have treatment. Time with their families. Loved Ones. So they have better statistics than >30% surviving 5 years. Of one woman every 8 Hours in Australia dying from Ovarian Cancer.

$4,941.00 raised.

But that’s not the end. Far from it. There’s 334 other days in the year to raise awareness.  Symptoms are often vague and the warning signs associated with the disease—discomfort or pain in the abdomen or pelvis; feeling swollen or bloated; appetite loss or feeling full quickly; tiredness, and unexplained changes in weight—rarely set off alarm bells. As a result, women or their doctors sometimes mistakenly attribute the symptoms to other gastrointestinal problems or common female complaints, and delay taking further steps. You can donate all year long to OCRF here.  You can plan to take part next year.

MONDAY | DAY 22

Eden Lane Boutique Scarlett Dress Sz14 $59.00 (sale)

I know from experience these type of dresses are not made for E cup boosies so I went up to a 14 and it fit perfectly. The tie front is actually a working tie so you can adjust to suit your bust/back size. A gorgeous midi length and light cotton fabric, this is the perfect Summer picnic dress!

Paired with White Haven Emporium Denim Jacket, Dotti Boater Hat and Cobble Lane Slides.

MONDAY | DAY 29

Little Party Dress Rita Black Floral Dress $74.95 (on loan from Captain + Co)

I’m in the 12 and have pushed the elasticated sleeves up to make them elbow length. It’s a relaxed fit so loads of room for the boosies, and drapey from the elasticated waist down so forgiving for a tummy. A huge thank you to Kim from Captain + Co for suggesting a frock swap during Frocktober to extend our frockdrobes!
