During my month of OpFrocktober I got my teenage son to take photos of me – bless him – and he did so without complaint.

Our usual routine was that we would go out to the front of the house, he’d use my phone to take a few photos and then throw the phone at me. I’ve got it set so that when you press the screen while the camera app is open it takes a photo.

One morning I fumbled, and dropped it and while looking through the photos afterward, found this one.

I really liked it, and when I posted it to Instagram got more likes for this one than I did of the one below.

I couldn’t recreate it if I tried but it was a happy accident.

I bought this frock at Nadia’s House of Serendipity a couple of years ago for $20. So not strictly op-shop. I always get lots of comments about this one. It sits really well and the detail at the bottom of the frock is silver. And it’s very comfortable to wear.
