On Friday, November 12, I attended the second annual Frocktail Party, a stylish evening in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which took place at 99 Sudbury in Toronto. Frocktail, not your average charity event, is an auction of hundreds of designer dresses, donated by celebrities, retailers, and designers, combined with cocktails and an evening of dancing. Fashionably Yours donated a Missoni dress (below) for the cause and appraised the dresses before the event. All the dresses that didn’t sell at the event are now available at Fashionably Yours and the proceeds will go to the JDRF. I actually won the bid on an amazing dress!!! I’ll be sure to show you when I wear it. xo

This purple & silver Herve Leger dress was auctioned off and is just like the one seen on Victoria Beckham and at Fashionably Yours. There were a ton of bids on the Herve Leger dresses, understandably.
