Guest Frockster Tre
Thank goodness for lovely bloggy friends - today has not been a good day for poncing about in front of the camera in a frock and lippy! Even if I had time to frock-up, I'm lacking the inclination (and that's putting it nicely!) It's been tracky-pants and a holey tee as far as clothes are concerned for me today!
Here's a reminder of what we've been dealing with
It is 3.55pm here and there is still dust "from a-hole to breakfast!" (this was one of my Dad's favourite sayings. I hope you aren't offended, but in these circumstances it is an entirely appropriate description)
On to prettier, Frocktober stuff.
Take a look at my gorgeous friend Curtise, who lives in Sheffield in the UK.
pretty as a picture in 70's lemon chiffon, a gift from Curtise's friend Vix.
Curtise reckons she looks like Margot Leadbetter (The Good Life), but I think she is much more gorgeouser.
Curtise says :
"I really wanted to wear something different, something special to celebrate your amazing fundraising achievement, and as a tribute to all of those who have experienced ovarian cancer"
I'd say you nailed it Curtise. With bells on.
Curtise always puts together the most beautiful collages, like this one on her blog. She also has great taste in music, is a scathingly funny writer and an all round top chick. She is also kind, supportive and loyal. You won't be disappointed if you pop over and say hello - I hope you do.
I'll end with another quote from Curtise (whose close friend Carol died from ovarian cancer thirteen years ago, so she writes from her heart)
"I chose a floaty yellow dress - about as far from the realities of cancer and pain and devastation as it can be - as a symbol to represent my belief in the power of science, medicine and human endeavour"
Thank you for your moving words and beautiful pictures Curtise x
