Yay, I actually managed to post a "Frock on Friday" pic on Friday. It's a miracle. Actually it's because we had a public holiday on Wednesday so I have not come home from work and just blobbed on the couch all evening and watched tv (or worse, played the sinful games on Facebook.....)
Here I am in on of my favorite new-to-me frocks from Toffs - yes, from the exclusive $2 section. Its a New Zealand made polyester number which I think dates from the 1980s. The front is quite low so I have to use one of those teeny tiny safety pins to keep things all together!

Shoes - retail
Belt - Butterflies Hospice Shop
Selection of bangles - all thrifted
Necklace - Presbyterian Support Yellow Shop
The photo is not great as there is a bit of over exposure (ooh er) on my decolletage - its not really lily white honestly. By the way, its been a good year for my Dahlias - these are the ones I got for free from the St Vincent de Paul a couple of years ago.
I started the week feeling a little cool - I mean cold actually. We had a change in the weather so I felt justified in getting out a thicker polyester dress and my fave lurex cardigan:

Shoes - Trademe
Bangles and necklaces - thrifted
On Thursday, I made a really really special effort and wore another of the exclusive fashion items from the $2 section of Toffs. I know, I go there nearly every week. Actually I think I go there twice a week!
The dress is a poly/linen blend, Made in Australia and I guess its from the 1980s. The poofy shoulders give me that idea. The shoulder pads were ripped out straight away. This dress is very fitted, and narrow through the legs so I was not able to carry boxes, climb on stuff or bend down and pick up a dropped pencil.

Red and white VW Melissa Lady Dragon Heart shoes - special birthday present when I was 40.
So there you have it - three polyester dresses in a row. Have you frocked on Friday??? Hope you all have a great weekend, xx
