Frocktober Day 21 (well the evening of the day before!)

I doubled up on frocks yesterday - is that cheating? I frocked up to go to the Merri Creek Primary School Art Show. And what an art show it was! I can't even express my overwhelming amazement at the incredible variety of creativity on display! Check out the ceramics! And the weaving! AND THE MONKEYS!!!

 While I frocked around I spoke to many people about frocktober and about ovarian cancer. It's amazing how many people mistakenly think that a pap smear tests for ovarian cancer. it's also amazing how many people think ovarian cancer is rare! One woman every 10 hours dies from it!

I'm finding frocktober such a simple, fun and easy way to raise awareness for the ovarian cancer research foundation. And nothing like electric blue taffeta and Anna Davern ear-rings for a conversation starter!

  2. If only I'd had an electric blue taffeta ruffles back then. My life would have been complete. That dress is amazing - you astonish me anew every day.

    1. I would NEVER have worn this in the 80's because I was too punk and scummy! But I love it now.
