A New Home

Welcome to the new home of Frocks And Frou Frou!

How exciting! I’m a dotcom! One step closer to world domination, eh? My very own Sophisticate, and our absolutely magnificent friend Elroy managed to pull this move off extraordinarily smoothly as a surprise, without me having to do any of the hovering around going “umn” and “what’s bandwidth?” like I otherwise would have.

Elroy’s a bit of an Interweb Master, and has a helluva website of his own, and I have it on good authority that I can ring him at ALL HOURS OF THE DAY OR NIGHT and he will make my website do whatever I want it to, up to and including the laundry. At the moment it’s pretty minimalist, and as much as possible I’d like to keep it that way, but if there’s anything you’d like to see feel free to shoot me an email or leave a comment.

Dress: Sohomode

Cardigan: Target

Boots: Duo Boots

Hat: Chitra’s Closet


So, a new blog address and a new background, to boot? Actually I just thought that this outfit was so perfectly matched with The Sophisticate’s wonderful heritage-listed building that I had him take the photos on the landing with his swanky new 550D camera.

It’s really a dress for all seasons, this one. It has gorgeous autumnal colours and is a kind of heavy cotton. The low back and wide neckline will be nice and breezy come summer, but today I’m wearing it over a long sleeved top and under my snuggly mustard-coloured cardigan with boots and a hat. If I look like I’m glowing with warmth, I am.

Meanwhile my hair’s just reached the point where it can not only manage a stumpy little ponytail, but one on the side. A side ponytail! I haven’t worn one since I was a kid in the 80’s!

  1. stunning dress, and you are so cute! looks like sohomode is on vacation, but I am tempted. thanks, and congrats on yr new web home.

  2. The new site looks great! And it’s a perfect excuse for a different background, which was the perfect setting for that ensemble. I absolutely love that dress with the cloche hat.

  3. That hat is SO adorable! As someone with an enormous head, I’m sitting here with extreme envy. Put it together with gorgeous boots, and I’m falling all over myself with jealousy!

  4. Beautiful dress! Normally I’m dying to wear the kinds of things you are but am on the opposite side of the globe so I have to wait months. But this summer is the coldest in 40 years here so it’s been working out nicely 😀

    Just a thought on the website, maybe buttons when you’re in a specific post that let you go to the next newest or oldest post? Handy for people reading archives!

  5. Oh Lilli! My Fashion Goddess! This is my first comment after quietly adoring you from afar (in the Southern US) for more than a year, but I had to come out of hiding to say that when I first opened your page today, that first photo looked like nothing more or less than an Important Work By An Old Master. 😉 On my screen the photo is a bit dark, it looks like an old oil painting. I can’t really see all the details of the dress (although I remember it) but the photo is just exquisite. 🙂 Sigh. I shall go away dreamy.

  6. Loving the new space Lilli! And the dress is beautiful as always. I am so glad you have your new dot.com! I have changed the link on my blog for you already!

  7. Congrats on your new home! Can you share this amazing friend with me who can make your site do the laundry? ‘Cause my pile is growing to dangerous proportions=)
    The outfit/dress looks great! These pictures were quite dark for me, I’m having some problems making out details.

  8. How exciting! And such a quick transition.

    You look excellent by the way, I wish those colours suited me as much as they do you.
