Friday Frocks

Discussion in 'threads and dreads' started by spanglechick, Jun 28, 2010.

    Not everyone reads my blog... or the thread about my blog - weirdos - but some who don't might be intersted in the whole friday frocks thing. Basdically, about a month and a half ago I launched an idea I had on the blog (not by any means a revolutionary idea, subsequent research tells me others have/are doing similar things) but a good idea.

    Forgive me if I quote now from that blog post:

    So - yeah... that's how it started. And since then, thanks to facebook and twitter (and a certain Phill Jupitus on twitter who keeps plugging the blog), it's developing a life of its own. Now some of you, I'm sure, will think it's all a load of bollocks. But then perhaps you'd be happier somewhere other than threads and dreads, no? Lots of people really love it though. So - yeah... I'm giving it its own urban voice...

    Oh, and these are the weekly galleries - if you do join in, send me pics via here or the blog and i'll say nice things about your outfit:

    Week One
    Weeks Two and Three
    Week Four
    Week Five

    Ooh, great idea!

    Where I was temping recently I passed three women in a corridor and I overhead one dressed in regular work civvies ask why the other two were all glammed up (they were proper frocked up) and they said it was because they were going to an awards ceremony. They looked lovely. :)

    It struck me then that dress down Fridays are a bit bah humbug and that it would be much, much better if Fridays were dress up Fridays instead.

    I heartily approve! :cool:

    I *heart* Friday Frocks :cool: It's given me cause to think heaps about what I wear, how to dress up what I've got and buy stuff that suits me for work. It's infectious as well, there's now about four of us who frock up for Fridays and the number is growing! :)

    you know I haven't been doing this cos I don't have anything that fab, then I realised this sits in the back of my mind and I seem to try without meaning to :D

    I don't really do fab or dresses but I shall endeavour to take a photo this week - I'm blaming Friday frocks for the recent slurge on jewellery :oops:

    Me76 Not very good lurker

    I have been doing this although haven't sent a pic every week. I will dramatically fail this week as got accidentally ridiculously sunburnt at the week end and so am having to wear boring long sleeves and trousers to cover the ugliness.

    I am trying to save my newest (and therefore nicest) pair of trousers for Friday though, am still trying to decide what to wear on top.

    Trashy. I'll write it up tomorrow or Thursday. That way it's a reminder for the next week.

    I'll try to get hendo to post a photo this Friday. As I wear a frock most days, I will have to make sure it's an extra-special one. :cool:

    Don't have any frocks as, frankly, too fat! But will have a good go re upping fabulous levels for next Friday and post something up

    moomoo Not so yummy mummy

    I got a new frock from the charity shop for this week! :D

    I'm loving it Spangles! Thank you so much for the suggestion! To have one day a week where you make an effort for no reason whatsoever is wonderful! :cool:

    I keep looking at other women wearing dresses now thinking - could I wear that to work? Would I wear it outside work? I'm on the hunt and I'm not supposed to be buying any more clothes :mad: :D

    are you trying to kill casual friday?

    or perhaps get it moved... you could have casual mondays , casual smart tuesdays, business casual wednesdays, smart professional thursdays and black tie fridays

    and too cheer up those poor souls who works 6 days a week Liberace satudays
  22. idioteque

    I'm already planning my outfit for this Friday :cool: I might even risk wearing heels for a whole day! :D

    I have considered taking a pic of my Thursday frock and pretending it's a Friday :oops:
