My last hurrah. Hooray!
Lots of photos for you today. Lucy Violet Vintage Honour Roll (thank-you's) tomorrow.
Every fashion parade ends (or it did in those glorious technicolour flicks of the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's) with a beautiful bride walking down the catwalk. Usually she's surrounded by a bevy of pretty bridesmaids decked out in rainbow coloured frocks. Sometimes her dress 'morphs' into a gigantic wedding cake and she ends up standing on the top tier. The audience goes crazy, the orchestra revs up a crescendo, the girl gets her man, and it's over. A bit like Frocktober really...
So in honour of all those glamorous Hollywood model brides, my last Frocktober fashion parade (ahem!), and Halloween, I give you my

Please sponsor me here.

I just got home to discover that lovely Gillian (aka Librarygirl) has sponsored me again (that makes twice!) which means we've raised $ 2000.00. OMG I am so excited and so grateful! It means such a lot to me. All of your donations mean a lot to me, but to hit 2k, well, that's just spectacular! Thank-you Gillian x
