Some could say that my style and wardrobe is a time warp, and a good thing that it is because last Saturday I attended a local Rocky Horror Picture Show Singalong event for charity. If you've ever attend a singalong event you will know that dressing in theme is a given it literally has to be done. Of course I was not one to shy away from chance to get into costume (or some of my regular wardrobe however you look at it) and have a child free night out.
I invited my dear friend Noelle to come with me, we are old school friends and have known each other for twenty-four years. If you enjoy sewing you might have caught her from time to time here on the blog when I've linked to her blog Sewell where she occasionally shares what she has been whipping up in her sewing room and sharing her odd fashion finds when op shopping.
So with all that being said I raided my wardrobe and called in a few other favours to put together my outfit for Saturday night and Noelle raided the costume departments wardrobe at the private school she works at, we were raring to go.

Here are a few photos of others in the costuming spirit on Saturday Night.
It was a great night of absolute craziness, with screams of arsehole, slut, toilet paper, dancing, sauciness and raunchiness. If you've not been to a Rocky Horror Picture Show Singalong it's an adult only event of course. Saturday night's event raised funds for a cause very close to my heart Pregnancy Loss Australia. As many who have been dropping in here for years know this month will mark seven years since we lost of Elle and Meg. It was great to have a fun night out supporting such wonderful cause and in some small way honoring my girls.
I'm looking forward to November where the organiser of this singalong has another singalong event booked for Mamma Mia, and the word is that it's going to be a big ABBA, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Disco type of affair.
