Bonus Guest Frockster (that makes nine)
It was so nice when these photos of today's guest frockster popped up in my inbox yesterday. They were a God-send actually, which sounds pathetic I know, but if you knew how much I (still) hate having my photo taken, and the lengths I have to go to get one of the two little darlings to take a few snaps of me (now that Anth is away again), you might get where I'm coming from.
Anyway, that's enough whinging from me. Meet my beautiful friend (and saviour) Sue from Perth, Western Australia,
(yep, finally a homie!)
(yep, finally a homie!)
and her pooch Nancy.
Sue describes herself as "a designer of sorts, rather obsessed with recreating the halcyon days of my idyllic 1970's childhood spent in the outer Eastern burbs of Melbourne"
If you can manage it - tear your eyes away from Sue's gorgeous smile (and her garden - of which I am insanely jealous!) for a sec, and focus on that frock. Sue calls it her Fernando frock. It's the real Mc Coy too, bought by her Mum Barb, from San Francisco's Fishing Boat Harbour, on a family holiday to the USA in 1974. It's a frock with provenance, gotta like that!
And (just in case you were wondering...) this is why Sue calls it her Fernando frock
Sue and I are yet to meet,
(although we have a big date planned next month when we are attending a Shannon Fricke interiors workshop together. We figure if we run out of things to say/hate each other on sight(!) we can focus on Shannon. Seriously, I am very excited about meeting Sue properly, and I reckon we'll get along like a house on fire. After all, what's not to love about someone who appreciates a good fart joke like Sue does?!)
I compare our friendship to a modern-day version of Helene and Frank's, except hopefully my appendix doesn't burst before we finally lay eyes on each other!
Frocktober's nearly done and dusted. Only five days to go. Frock yeah! Honestly, as the days have passed I am finding writing these posts a bit of a struggle (even with the assistance of my lovely guest frocksters), thanks for sticking with me, even though I know it's becomming a rough read. I really appreciate it.
I'll let Sue do the talking to fin "I wish for medical research to develop a simple early detection test for ovarian cancer available to all women"
Please sponsor me Here. Your donation will help Sue's wish (and mine) become a reality. Thank you x
p.s. last chance for Prom Night photos if you're brave enough - I'm pencilling it in For Wednesday.
