December 1st marks the beginning of 'Dressember' - the challenge for women (or the adventurous male) everywhere to shake up their wardrobe and try ditching the jeans and t-shirts.

We're aiming to wear dresses as often as possible. There are no rules, it's all about stretching your wardrobe boundaries, trying something different, and having fun, so just jump on in :-)

If you are joining in or just want to show your support to our cause and to Refuge, please feel free to contribute a pound or two.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

For more info please see the Facebook page.

Thank you!!!

Fab idea, I'm happy to have a good reason to be forced to be inventive with my wardrobe for a month: though I wish I'd invested in thicker tights...!

I can totally relate to this challenge as I've recently taken to dresses again (first time since childhood). I love dresses and I love a good cause!
