I am almost pleased that I get to write about the end of my month of dresses. When I say almost pleased, the thing I am going to miss most about Frocktober are the self-indulgent photos everyday, discovering new and interesting ways to wear my clothes, the slightly more frequent op-shop visits and the sheer joy wearing a dress can bring. Things I am not going to miss about Frocktober? Well... to be honest, I think I have discovered that I not that creative a dresser. I would get so frustrated on those days when all I wanted to do was spend the whole day in house pants or pyjamas, and I would have to stand in front of my wardrobe and wonder what the least offensive dress/skirt outfit was for that non-dress day. They were the worst. Other days, it was absolute mayhem in my wardrobe, as I couldn't even decide which dress was the best! I will also not miss having to plan ahead for almost a month of events. If I knew I wanted to wear that dress for that event, it couldn't be worn beforehand. That was annoying.
I will admit that I did cheat a tiny bit. I never wore pants or anything like that, but I did take 2 photos on a few days. Days when I would be wearing a new outfit, and then have another new outfit for an event. They were 2 photo days, but I claimed the dresses for different days. I always wore a dress, but it meant I could repeat an outfit or two, without having to show you, dear reader. I am entirely proud of my efforts as a dress wearer, and this month I have added a few new op-shop finds to my wardrobe that I consider to be amazing finds for a size 14 lady such as myself.
These are a few of my favourite outfit from the month.
I always forget how much I love this dress. This was bought in Washington DC, so it has lovely memories too.
I like this dress because it is the only shift dress that I own, and it is different to most of my other dresses. I also love these shoes. Mustard heels should go with more things.
I haven't worn a T-shirt under a dress in a while, it used to be my uniform. This is my new favourite T-shirt.
This is my current favourite dress. I found it at a Vintage shop (also my new favourite shop in Perth - Bluebird Vintage), and it wasn't a million dollars. It fits like a dream, and has this fun tie that looks good undone like in the pic, or in a big bow.
Halloween at work. I had to put this up because a costume on a costume is so much win.

Ps: I didn't wear pants today. I might tomorrow. It's almost too hot for pants now!
