Frocktober – Week 1

October 13, 2015

I have been participating in Frocktober this year, an event encouraging us to promote & raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

I’m wearing a frock every day in October as my Frocktober challenge & I’m hoping you’ll get behind me & donate whatever you can to this important cause.

Frocktober is all about recycling, borrowing & re-inventing existing frocks, it’s about rocking the frock, not necessarily your bank balance – which is handy because 31 dresses could be the end of me, or a really bad movie…..

It’s actually very challenging wearing a dress every day, I just don’t wear them usually, unless I’m going to the beach!

Stay with me though, I’ve got some beauties lined up!!  If you’d like any of the details of these looks, head on over to my Facebook or Instagram where all these pics are posted.

So here’s my 7 Days of Frocktober for this week.

Frocktober 2015

There are women all over Australia participating in Frocktober, not just me (you can too!).  I thought I’d share a few of my favourites from this week with you.

Style & Shenanigans

First up is Vanessa from Style & Shenanigans in this gorgeous Zeusophobia Dress in Black Sloth $230.  I love, love, love Vanessa’s ability to put a quirky edge into her style, it’s always pushing the boundary, but never going too far!

Ovarian Cancer affects a woman’s ovaries, located on either side of the uterus.  The role of the ovaries are to produce ova or eggs as well as hormones involved in the menstrual cycle and fertility.

  • 1 woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer
  • There is no early detection test
  • If the cancer is diagnosed & treated early, 80-100% of patients will survive more than 5 years
  • 30% of women diagnosed at advanced stages will not live longer than 5 years

These are pretty frightening statistics given there are no real symptoms for Ovarian Cancer.  The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) is Australia’s leading  independent body dedicated to national ovarian cancer research.  They provide awareness & vital research into the development of an early detection test to save women’s lives.

OCRF doesn’t receive any government funding.  It’s important we support this research.
