friends for frocktober

A girl should always feel beautiful when she puts on her favourite dress, right? Let's celebrate that. In the spirit of Frocktober, I have asked a number of my blogger friends to show off their favourite frocks, and tell me about it. So a big thank you goes to the following 10 super gorgeous ladies for helping me out.

Marianne: "I looked for so long for a black winter dress, covered in red roses and in the New Look full skirted style, that I thought I was never going to find it! I was so pleased to finally see this one, and it is my size exactly. Even though e are well into spring, it is still very cold and wintery here in Melbourne, which means I get to wear this dress a few more times!"
Ana: ""The cut of this vintage dress reminds me of Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep but the slightly sparkly fabric and sequins puts me in the mood for Diana Ross in the 60s. I love how unlikely that combo is."

Claradevi: "Sometimes a dress signifies a certain emotion. This maxi polkadot always makes me feel carefree and happy. I wish every woman can have one dress that makes them feel special!"
Liss: "My favourite vintage dress from Gary Pepper Vintage. I love the subtle geometric pattern and the pleats also love pink!"

Emily: "This brown floral frock is easily the most worn item in my wardrobe. It's as comfortable as it is versatile and I literally wear it all year long."
Kelly: "This dress is vintage & has a 1970s-does-1920s feel to it. The parasol print is just so unique and it is definitely my most treasured frock!"

Jennifer: "This is one of my favourite dress because the colour is so unusual. Then there is the lace collar and of course, the polka dots!"
Miy: "The floral dress is my current favourite. Made by my boyfriend's sister. I love that braided detail on the neck."

Rhianne: "As Frocktober is during Autumn in the UK, my staple items for this month have been - thick wooly tights, waterproof, sensible shoes and lots and lots of scarves and cardigans. Luckily it hasn't been too hard for me to layer these with skirts and cardigans and I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I've loved taking part in Frocktober with Anna."
Amanda: "This dress was a gift from my friends at Kings of Carnaby and is my most loved and most worn item in my wardrobe. I love the pleats, the collar and the sheer sleeves."
