Frocktober


It's Frock-tober, and time to pull out those sweaters and your bestest of dresses- we're going places.  As you read this, I'm offline and in the middle of a big move- me and the dude have finally shacked up together, and we're in the process of packing up and moving into the cutest little bungalow in the city of Seattle, perhaps on the whole planet.  The weather seems congratulatory in its overwhelming sunniness, with the sky 33% bluer than ever. Things are looking up!

Thank you dear readers and friends for being here! 

And a big thank-you to my sponsors:
Funkoma Vintage
Karina Dresses
L'affaire Cashmere
Sunglasses Shop

I've decided that this month is FROCKTOBER and it's all about DRESSES! 
Here, you see a glimpse of one of my favorite go-to frocks, my red/black polka dot Audrey dress by Karina Dresses. You've seen it before, and you'll see it again, it's wrinkle free, easy to wash and wear and is all about mobility and comfort. As are these shoes- aren't they a thrill? Comfortable to walk in and super cute United Nude bootie which was a grand Value Village score- new they normally retail for a couple hundred clams, but I got them for a frugal $20. Now more than ever, I'm committed to "shop secondhand first" and focus on quality over quantity. 

So get your frock on, and I'll see you soon!

Brilliant video. I especially like when you turn corners and your stopping point but the simplicity itself is what I adore. Of the Karina dresses the Audrey is my favourite. Great VV score.

Congrats dear Bella...enjoy and savor!

theequinebovine said...

those are some sweet shoes!

Beryl said...

Oh Bella, another move? I can't wait for the next pictures, because I can hand them to my husband and have him tell me what neighborhood you're in now. I always think of Ballard, Freemont, or Greenlake neighborhoods when I think of you in Seattle. October is a great month to do dresses, maybe even better than September. And isn't Value Village good? Have fun!

Helga! said...

Cute pictures! I love those vertical polka dots. Congrats on the cohabitation. Seattle seems to have a lot of cute little shacks. Is yours, by any chance, down in Ballard?
