What The Frock?! : 09/11/10 (And A Copywriting Update!) ♥


On a deliciously warm Sunday afternoon (seriously Sydney, just LOOK at your gorgeously-hued sky! And how about that sensational sunshine you’re dishing out?! Di-VINE!), it almost feels impossible to recall donning a multitude of layers to huddle around London’s British Museum and freeze myself senseless (and only a mere four days ago!), but ooh, I did, and do I have the photographic evidence to prove it! (Hint: I do!)

Here’s what I wore on my final day in London:






What I’m Wearing:

x Black and white polka-dot dress, from London’s Camden Markets
x Raspberry beret (the kind I DIDN’T find in a second-hand store, but a fine one, no less!)Sportsgirl
x  Black sweater and fluffy coat, second-hand
x Payless Shoes boots
x My Name Necklace’s ‘Frock & Roll’ nameplate necklace (which I wear everyday – well, until it snapped yesterday, that is! D’OH!)

Frockery aside, one of the questions I’ve kindly (I mean, goodness! You took the time to enquire and EVERYTHING! How kind indeed!) been asked over the past few weeks has been “so, exactly how many slices of pizza did you devour while you were in Italy?!” (rough estimate: 4,677786786262) “so, how exactly is Frock & Roll’s copywriting services coming along?!”, and much like when you’re trotting through the airport only to be informed by a nun that your dress is so delightfully tucked into your undergarments (!), it can be an awkward topic to discuss, but marvellously, gratefully, how-flipping-EXCELLENT-ly, the truth is: superbly! With my brain firmly ensconced in holiday (and gelato!) mode, there’s been minimal time for key bashing, but this week I’m penning pieces for a prospective blogger, cafe` owner, freelance writer and jewellery designer (!), so colour me a ridiculous shade of excitement and excuse me now as I dive off the uncomfortable ‘talking about myself’ stage!

How was YOUR week? What did you do? What did you see? And honestly, have you ever encountered one of those mortifying ”GLORIOUS! I do believe that I’ve just exposed approximately one hundred strangers to the joys of my owl lingerie!” moments?!

  1. I am so stoked for you that the copywriting is going well! x

  2. Kez – Ah! Thank-you so much, sweet Kez! 🙂

  3. I had a nameplate necklace as well – it didn’t have my name on it but it read ‘inspire’ and I loved it; sadly it did snap too at the beginning of the year 😦

    Well, the last week has been awesome. I went to two shows, re-connected with old friends I hadn’t seen in a million years (it felt like that – in truth it were only 2 1/2!) and did all that in zombie-mode as show nights meant I never went to bed before 2AM even when I had to get up at 4 the next day 😉

  4. I lovee your dress ♥

    I’m glad the copywriting is going well! :]
