"I'm livin in the 70's
I feel like I lost my keys
Got the right day but I got the wrong week
And I get paid for just bein' a freak"
(Living in the 70's, Skyhooks, 1974)
Today's Frocktober post is dedicated to my lovely bloggy friend Curtise, and to the memory of her dear friend Carol who lost her battle with ovarian cancer thirteen years ago. Curtise writes about this (and growing up in the 70's) on her blog today - you can read about Carol (and catch a glimpse of Curtise doing what she does so well - she puts my feeble attempts at posing to shame!) here.
it's gonna get worse folks, that's all I can say...
Today's little number is a vintage 70's halter-neck. It is cotton, size 12 (although we're talking old-school size 12) and as fresh as the day it was made. The tag says "Exclusively Virginia Grae". If you like daisies, stripes, spots, primary colours and showing a bit of back this is the frock for you! Send me a note if you're interested. Purchase price will be donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, and I will pay for postage.
To date, thanks to the lovely people (that's you guys!) who read this blog, we have raised $1190.50! This money will aid in the development of an early detection test that will save women's lives. This is a bloody good thing, right?!
I would be extremely grateful if you could donate too.
Any amount - five dollars, fifty dollars, fiddy cents - will help make a difference.
Please sponsor me here.
told ya! See you tomorrow x
p.s. if you're interested in being a guest frockster (because seriously, I am gonna run out of frocks!) please send me a note. Some of you are born to do this(!) and I'd love to have you here...
