I bought this top on Boxing Day in the big sale on the City Chic site and it just arrived yesterday. I love it - I don’t have a lot of purple and the fit is awesome, so overall quite happy.

Another ASOS dress - I have this one in all three colours and love it oh so much. It is so comfortable, I love the look and fit; I will likely wear these more than anything else all summer. It has adjustable spaghetti straps - I’ll show what it looks like without the shrug over next time I wear one of the other colours; I think this is the first time I’ve posted any of them. Highly recommend - they are currently on sale on the site here.

New ASOS Curve dress. This one is on sale right now and is pretty cheap. I will admit it verges on somewhat tent-like and has a snake print that I never thought I would really like, but I do! It’s cute! Yay!

I forgot to take an outfit photo before I left for work this morning, and since it was the first time I had worn this top with this skirt and they go so fabulously together, I really needed a photo of it. So here, you get a terrible iPhone selfie in my work’s bathroom. But as an added bonus, you also get a terrible iPhone selfie of me trying on my new Lady Leona faux leopard fur swing coat from Collectif, which arrived today.

Frocktober the Thirtieth
I had to wear something a bit more sensible today because, once again, it is windy as shit. But I was a little sad about it because there are still so many awesome frocks in my closet that didn’t get worn during Frocktober. I know, I know, tough shit, right? I’ll just make sure to wear the rest of them soonish, and maybe take some photos when I do! ;)
I have saved a Halloween-inspired frock for tomorrow - appropriate for the last day of Frocktober. :)
Oh, by the way, the necklace I’m wearing is the Dolly Parton necklace I ordered from Twisted Mind of Mine on August 30. It showed up yesterday, after two months of infrequent responses to my emails, assurances it had been sent, assurances that it hadn’t been sent but they would make a new one and it was sent on 3 October. I finally had to file a Paypal dispute, during which they once again said that it was sent, but this time on 21 October. Sure enough, when it arrived yesterday the postmark was 21 October. So they jerked me around for 2 months with no explanation and then only sent it after I filed a dispute. Shitty. And this is after I have bought tonnes of stuff from them and totally advocated for them on this blog. Needless to say, that shitty service just lost them a very good customer, though I will continue to wear the pieces I already have. But no more purchases, and no more plugs for their store.

Frocktober the Twenty-Ninth
Frocktober is almost over! It’s been super fun, and I realised that since I will be in Africa for nearly all of February, I won’t be able to participate in Fatshion February next year. So this has been a substitution for that, plus I’ve raised money for a good cause! Yay!
There is still time to donate! My donation page is here.

Frocktober the Twenty-Second
It was less windy yesterday, but I still thought it a good idea to wear leggings under my dress. I was traumatised by Monday.
I had a lovely evening last night with two lovely friends, good food, great conversation and a couple of bottles of wine.

Frocktober the Fourteenth
It was the most horrible day yesterday in the history of horrible days, at least in terms of the weather. 140 kms winds and horizontal rain, I thought I was going to get blown away to Kansas! So I wore a dress that wouldn’t fly over my head and flash everyone.
