Rock that frock - As seen in Ishoperth Magazine pg 8 Issue Oct 20 2011

IF YOU SEE A LOT OF WOMEN FROCKING UP IN THE CITY THIS OCTOBER, THEN CHANCES ARE IT’S FOR A VERY GOOD REASON. BY BELINDA CIPRIANO.



   The challenge was to wear 31 different dresses during the month of October while raising money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, too easy – or so I thought.
   I try to support as many charities as I can so when the Frocktober challenge was put to me in September, I thought “pfft, I can do that without even breaking a sweat”.
   I mean really, what better way is there to raise money then to frock up every day and have people sponsor you for doing so.
   So how have I been doing so far?
   So far so good. I’m 18 days in at the time of going to print and I’m doing well.
   However, it’s now that the challenge really starts to present itself – I mean how do you get away with wearing a sparkly, sequin dress to work?
   I need to look smart, not like an 80s back-up singer, as my husband politely puts it.
   And here is where my problem lies.
   I have exhausted all my corporate dresses and am now left with party frocks – what’s a girl to do?
   Do I a) wear my party frocks to work and shock the hell out of my colleagues, or do I b) blend in nicely with a bunch of newly bought dresses 
for work? I’m going with b – after all, you can never have too many frocks!
   Follow me on my journey and let me know which frocks rock and which frocks are not so hot, then hop over to my Everyday Hero Page to make a donation.

  1. Hi,
    It is very wise for women to choose these beautiful dresses. Then they can buy more with the same amount of money. Many girls complain they have spent a lot of money on them. Many girls wear them just once, From here Online you can choose from number of verity Ball gowns at a competitive price. I like it.
