Guest frocking!

Just a reminder that there are still five days of Frocktober left - a frock-filled month of fundraising for research into ovarian cancer. Kylie , over at Lucy Violet Vintage is taking it all on board with gusto and managing to get into a frock and be photographed almost everyday - even when her ceiling has collapsed! I've guest frocked over there in one of my favourite lemon fifties dresses....

My friend Melita has also joined in - because she is all sorts of incredible.  She has recently been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and is recovering from surgery and fundraising and frocking up each day (and accessorising with compression hose!) I pop up there too in a forties wool crepe number - another oldie but a favourite.

And if you don't believe me that Melita is all sorts of  incredible then I urge you to view this video she made of herself dancing on the eve of her surgery, with no knowledge of the prognosis (which is fortunately looking good.) The bravery and sense of joy in this dance, knowing what was in store for her, is so moving and so admirable. 

So donate what you can! It's a frockin' good cause!


  1. Smiling and tearing up.
    What an awesome woman!
    She just might be the funkiest white woman alive...wish I could bust da moves like her!
    Wishing you nothing but the best Melita x

    p.s. thanks for the shout-out Julianne x

  2. Thank you, Julianne. You are a vision in lemon and one inspirational lass. And thank you Kylie, you magnificent frock fiend.
