My thanks to everyone who has gone on this Frocktober journey with me. My last frock for Frocktober on a Frock Friday no less, was a little black linen dress I bought in Big W in 2000 for $19.*
It is a really plain dress, one which can be dressed up or down. With an A-line cut and V-neck, it’s really flattering and it is a staple of my summer wardrobe. I feel so cool in it, and usually wear a scarf with it to keep the sun off my neck.
While it is the end of Frocktober, I am finding it quite hard to get out of the habit of wearing dresses, especially at work! I am relishing the feel of jeans on the weekend (it was freezing and wet on Saturday!), but I am finding that I am turning first to the dress part of my wardrobe during the week.
One of my friends asked me how many dresses I have- 19 is the magic number. There are a few I would have like to have worn, but sadly they don’t fit me at the moment (“at the moment” being the operative phrase :)).
To those who donated, I thank you most sincerely. With offline pledges, the total raised came to $830. Thank you for your generosity to this cause!
