frocktober roundup: day 16 - 21

10 comments

Gee, my pose is getting boring.. sorry about that peeps!

Did you know that not only is this October the month of Frocktober, but it's also Buy Nothing New month?  As the name suggests, it involves... umm.. not buying anything new. Or in their words: "It’s about taking October to reassess what we really need, think about where the stuff we buy comes from (finite resources), where it goes (landfill), and what our alternatives are.". I did think of participating in Buy Nothing New but I pretty much failed on the first day because I had to buy new slips to wear my frocks with! I do know some people who are participating though, and kudos to them! Although I'm not completely participating in it, I've decided not to buy any new frocks for Frocktober. Instead, apart from wearing my own, I've also been borrowing (e.g. red dress on day 17) and opshopping (e.g. green dress on day 18). I'd rather donate the money I could use to buy a brand new frock to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation instead.

Would you like to donate too? You can do so through my Frocktober fundraising page. Thank you so much to everyone who has already!

That's interesting. I'm not much of a clotheshorse or even remotely fashionable, so I'll just watch from the sidelines.

This is cool! :) You have a great selection of dresses, I like 17 and 19 best. I wear dresses most days anyway (just because I'm more comfortable in dresses) You look super cute in all of these, hope you're having a nice weekend! :) x
