Day 30 part 2. After yesterday's migraine it was a bit much wearing the wig, so I switched back into Amanda. I wore a new to me Leina and Fleur dress and new Sstutter UK magnificent tiger brooch. Not only did I meet my fundraising goal, but I surpassed last years final tally. My team has also raised over $22,000 and is sitting (just) at the top of the team fundraising table. Woot! I'm so proud of my team's efforts, and very thankful of those who have donated.
One day to go xx

Day 30 part 1 was a work dress up for Halloween. I had a bit of a Mortice/ Lillian vibe going on. I also cracked my fundraising goal, which was just as well as I didn't really want to turn people into toads for not donating.

30 Oct 2020

Day 29 part 2 was poodle themed for my choir, Chordial Tones. The whole gang dressed up for Halloween. It was great fun. It would be great fun if I cracked the $2000 mark for my fundraising. If you haven't yet donated there is still time!

30 Oct 2020

Day 29 part 1. Today was 1950s rack n roll. This is the one I wore to work. There was lots of rockn, and rolln and what not. Stay tuned for part 2...

28 Oct 2020

Day 28 was a Team Dames challenge in floral. I feel very sedate after yesterday's efforts! I'm also very excited to say our Team Australian Dames of Fashion are number 1 on the Teams fundraising list! So proud of the achievements of our team, with many doing Frocktober for the first time. Only 4 outfits and 3 days left. There's still plenty of time to donate. Help me beat my last year tally - round it off to $1,900!

27 Oct 2020

Bonus for Day 27 - fulfilling Karen R's request for Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way.

27 Oct 2020

Day 27 was the third and final sponsored challenge for the N&I Contracts team of 'medieval'. I ended up as a cross between barmaid and milkmaid - either way I would be lugging a big tankard of liquid around. There is 5, or maybe 6, dresses to go over 4 days. Show your appreciation of my frocking efforts by donating.

26 Oct 2020

Day 26 - back to school! Lisa and Tanya at work challenged me to wear private school uniform strict policy application. I nailed it, but was nearly sent home to change my shoes into my Bata lace ups. Not long to go. Donate now :-).

My styling dance card is officially full, and tomorrow I'm doing a double styling challenge day. By day for the N&I Contracts team, and by night for Christine T. Game on.

Day 18 was vintage glam sponsored by Michelle B. We are on the downhill slope of Frocktober. Not many days left to sponsor me or get your donations in.

Day 17 Frocktober was a sponsored post by Helen M. She wanted an outfit that showed off my Flibby the boxer brooches. I've worn one as a necklace. I also went to a Frocktoberfest and a lovely Canadian couple gave me $50 for a donation. Such generosity from people who were strangers to me!

Tomorrow I'm finally doing Michelle B's challenge - vintage glam.
