Today was another cold, grey day, and this afternoon saw mum and I go out for our fortnightly coffee ‘date’. Even though we live within 100 metres of each other, we don’t spend much quality time together, as I’m always busy! So it’s nice to take an hour or two out every two weeks to go out, treat ourselves to a coffee (or, in my case, a mocha) and a sweet treat, and just chat.
Today I wore my cute purple vintage smock, layered up for the cooler weather. I’m also wearing a new Vintette necklace – a sweet fleur-de-lis design. Haven’t gotten it in the shop yet, but if you want one, just e-mail me!
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!
