12th of Frocktober and dressing up for fun(ds)

On the 12th of Frocktober aubergine met chocolate and velvet met corduroy.

Sometimes I wish fabric never faded. I miss some dresses.

Like a fuchsia pink silk floral print shift dress when I was 16. I wore it with jet black tights and doc marten boots. I wore it a lot.  I wish that dress never wore out.

And a lovely red 60s swing dress which made drag queens green with envy. But there came a time to dump it.

Then there are other frocks I wish I could have worn this month. But some faded, and I gave 0thers away in-between babies, or in moments of de-cluttering “have I even worn this recently?” days. There are only so many dresses a girl really needs. But there are some which I think I’ll keep for a very long time. My wedding dress. And a couple of party frocks. Not just in case. Just because.
