A side trip for the fashion conscious

Frocktober 2013

Libby all suited up for an interview

I’m delighted to report that for the third year in a row, Libby, one of our daughters, is taking part in Frocktober. The deal/challenge is to wear a dress or skirt for every day of the month of October.

This annual event helps to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation in Australia. Ovarian cancer is not detected through pap smears.

Although Libby doesn’t work at the National Museum of Australia any more (she moved to Sydney), she’s part of the National Museum of Frocks team and trotting out the frocks with a bevy of former colleagues.

The team hopes to collect $3000 and they’ve already reached $2200, but the month is almost over. I’m off to do my bit now.

Here are some useful links.

I’ve been through the pics and noticed that Libby has ‘ahem’ appropriated some of my jewelry as accessories this year. With my blessings. 🙂

If you scroll down just a bit on this site, you’ll see a token picture of me wearing a skirt, taken last October in Bangkok. There will be no repeat this year. I wore a dress once in August. That’s enough.
