If you want to refresh yourself with all that I wore, you can visit my donation page here, where I uploaded a photo from each day (sometimes two!).
But now for the most popular outfits!
The most popular outfit on Instagram was this one:
This is the one I wore on Day 2 to a fashion exhibition, and while its an amazing vintage dress from the 1940s, I'm surprised it got the most likes (36!) when the next most likes was 30 (Days 4 and 8).
The most popular outfit on Facebook was this one:
No surprises there I suppose! This outfit got 35 likes, with the next favourite one getting 25 likes (Day 18)
All up I wore 9 vintage dresses, 7 self sewn dresses, and 17 reproduction dresses. Those amongst you good at maths will realise that this adds up 33! That's because there were two days where I wore two outfits!
And in blogging about Frocktober I had a few questions asking how I store things, and saying that my wardrobe must be huge etc etc. And while I wish my wardrobe looked like this:
In reality it looks like this:
Yep, all smooshed in to a too small cupboard, with my colourful plastic shoes on the floor. Granted I do have another wardrobe space in my sewing room for my coats and vintage gowns.
They are smooshed in too, along with my petticoats and other random crap.
Much better treatment is reserved for my shoes and handbags, which are all nicely on display:
At least this way I remember what I have and don't buy duplicates
(don't laugh, I've done it before!)
Some of my more special or rarely worn shoes are kept in their boxes.
But, cutely, my husband let me keep ALLL the shoe boxes, in case we have to move... and I just put my handbags in front of them.
People also wondered how I stored my bangles and things... well, its not the prettiest, but I store them like this:
My bangles all live in this plastic container. I'm working on a better way but haven't finished it quite yet... and least in the mean time they are easy to get to!
My hair accessories are in another plastic container
And my Lucy Luxxe pretties are in a glass candy jar. Kind of fitting really!!!
So there you go! Less glamorous that you thought I bet!
So in a final goodbye to Frocktober, I was also featured in today's local paper!

In the last couple of weeks I have been doing some sewing - mostly commissions for others - but they have been fun, so I'm going to show them to you later in the week.
In closing, did you have a favourite outfit from Frocktober???
