Frocktober : Week 4 Outfit Round-up

I've been having a great time with Frocktober, I hope you've been enjoying my outfits!  And if you can, I'd love it if you could donate here.  Ovarian cancer research is a very worthy cause.


So I spent last Saturday sewing.  And normally when I sew I wear leggings and a t-shirt, but its Frocktober so I can't do that... so I thought this vintage nightgown and robe would be just as comfy - and it was!

Dress: vintage nylon nightgown and robe set
purchased on Etsy


I went out for cocktails with my husband, so I wasn't going to go in my nightgown!  I thought this was much more appropriate!

Dress: by Gerry Roxbury, purchased from Miskonduct Klothing

Sundays are going-out-for-breakfast day and this is the delightfully colourful frock I decided to wear!

Bangles: vintage lucite purchased from Etsy


Yep, ended up out for breakfast again!  What a lucky girl!!  And today I decided to get my flamingo on!

This dress.  This dress.  THIS DRESS!!!!  Vintage late 1950s dress that has hardly ever been worn and is in immaculate condition.  Sigh!  I paid a fair bit for it but I think its worth every penny.  I just adore it!  Oh, and I realised that I had been doing my hair the same way for 21 days so tried to change it up a bit!

This outfit was inspired by a conversation I had on Facebook with a few people in regards to blue and green.  We were discussing the old saying "blue and green must never be seen without a colour in between" and I was saying it was rubbish, and instead should be "blue and green is fit for a queen".  This is my blue and green outfit!

Well, believe it or not, I am almost there with Frocktober, just 6 days to go!  I've really enjoyed this and I hope its been interesting to you all too.  I haven't done a normal blog post this week because I've been working my day job like a mad woman.  Hopefully I've have something to report on the sewing front next week, cause I've been madly working my way through some customer commissions!

Have a great weekend!  I'll be in a skirt making frenzy!!



  1. I love seeing all your outfits, I'm so jealous of your wardrobe! I wish I could have participated in this (damm workplace having a uniform/must wear pants policy!)!

  2. I am dying with envy here! i love all your outfits! They are all beautiful and you look stunning in all those outfits! You really have a great sense of style and you just know what to pick. I love all the outfits as well as the shoes. I love the shoes you wore for Sunday breakfast and the red ones. I think my favorite outfit of yours, if i were to choose, i think i would have to choose two. The Sunday outfit and that vintage late 1950's dress.

    1. Thanks Ann! This has definitely shown me just how extensive my wardrobe is. I really do have some lovely things :)

  3. Beccie, days 22, 24 and 25 are especially gorgeous! This might sound weird... but I would love to see your wardrobe! It must be enormous! And you must have bakelite bangles all over the place! Or is it an oasis of colour-coordinated calm?

    1. Charlotte, its actually not! And I'm thinking of doing a Frocktober Follow-up post including photos of my wardobe and how I store my stuff :) I thought some of you might find it interesting :)

  4. I ADORE your style, girl!! I'm immediately going to add you to my blog reading list! :) I especially love the outfit with the flamingo skirt & necklace. I have that flamingo print, but in the dress version! You always have such gorgeous eyes.
