Ellie rocks the frocks

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm in a country pub garden surrounded by lots of women and a few hundred dresses. The occasion is the culmination of a year long project by a beautiful young lady that I met through blogging who has since become my friend.

She's bi polar and despite the tough journey that she's been on since being diagnosed she took on a mammoth challenge of wearing a different dress a day every day for 365 days to raise money for the mental health charity MIND.

Dresses were bought, swapped, donated, worn then packed away awaiting today's big sale. Of course she catalogued the journey on her blog.

Of course I had to make a purchase, this fab stripey Top Shop number, a bargain at £10.

Everyone who knows her is so proud of what she's achieved, raising a grand total of £785.
Well done Ellie. Xx
