Struggled again for Edition 17 of What I Wore due to various health issues, but I was determined not to miss the start of Frocktober 2015!
Especially as I am proud to be a Frocktober Ambassador!
So October is going to be 31 days of 31 dresses to raise funds and awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation!
This edition includes the first 4 days…so far, so good!
What I Wore…Monday 28th September – Sunday 4th October 2015
Monday was a wipeout, so sadly no outfit to start the week.
On Tuesday, we went to a pre-transplant workshop to share our liver transplant journey and give hope to those still waiting.
It was also the launch of the unit’s website which I have been working on for the last three years and they surprised me with this gorgeous bunch of flowers!
I wore a Katies tunic (last season), leggings and Spendless heels (current)…
Wednesday was a quiet day but did at least attempt to get up and dressed.
Wore Katies Ultimate jeans (current) with a black t-shirt under a rather cute vintage top I found at Retrostar Vintage…silver wedges are a op shop find and the retro sunglasses are from Catch a Thief…
Thursday was the beginning of Frocktober 2015, so no more pants…31 days of 31 dresses ahead!
For Day 1, I wore an old Jag dress I have had for years, with my favourite op shop belt & heels combination!
I finally felt better on Friday and it was a deliciously warm day in Melbourne, perfect for the AFL Grand Final Parade!
So for Day 2 of Frocktober 2015, I wore a vintage dress found at Frocks and Slacks with black wedge sandals and an op shop find black belt.
Saturday was Day 3 of Frocktober 2015, and it was another gorgeous hot day…although it was probably a little too hot for the big AFL Grand Final.
Went back into the city to soak up the atmosphere…wore a Sussans dress (last year) with an op shop denim waistcoat and Wittner wedges (current).
Also took my new sun hat from Princess Highway, and you may also spot my hand made Moby Duck yellow terrier brooch!
Sunday was brunch day with friends…so for Day 4 of Frocktober, I wore one of the first vintage dresses I ever bought (found Minettes Vintage) with Minx orange heels (last season) and Catch a Thief retro sunglasses!
This colourful outfit was the most liked for the week on Instragram…

Sorry, it’s taken me a few days to pop over. Crazy kid stuff going on here! Wowzers I love all your vintage pieces you show off here and IG. I’m fairly certain I could shop your wardrobe very easily! I love the green top on Wednesday and of course your vintage dresses later in the week. How awesome are those silver wedges. You truly are unique, thank you for joining the link up once again! Sending you good health vibes and love.
Thanks Trudie! I am a very lucky girl to have so many lovely clothes to play with. And it’s weird that only a few years ago, I had no interest in fashion!
