Today turned out all overcast, cool, and rainy… a contrast to yesterday’s dry, sunny, and super-windy day! So, I had to layer up a little bit more.
This was probably the first thrifted dress I bought, I blogged about it last year! The print is a bit mad, but pairing it with the black and brown tones it down a little. It’s also handmade – there are no tags, and it is a little rough in places. So this one fits the bill both ways! (I can’t be sure it’s vintage, but I have a feeling it was made a good while ago!)
Now, as much as I’m enjoying this, it’s not just for fun! I’d love it if you’d pop over and give a little donation towards finding an early detection test for Ovarian Cancer - and help me reach my pledge goal of $500!
My Frocktober Pledge
I have a couple of pledges for Frocktober – which is an annual event to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research:
- Each day I will don a vintage or handmade dress, take a photo, and blog about it here on Epheriell Designs. Considering I’m travelling to Melbourne and Canberra to attend the Problogger Training Day AND attending one of my bestie’s weddings, it’s going to be a frocktabulous month, and I might even be able to drag some other ladies into the fray!
- I am going to sew my very first dress!!! Yes, I am very, very excited about this – and terrified, too! I have the perfect pattern, the perfect fabric – and it’s one of my goals for 2011. This is just the kick in the skirt that I need to get it done!
- At the end of the month I’m going to auction off one of my vintage dress collection, and all the money raised will go into my pledge fund!
