Challenge

It's been a while, I know. I've been feeling a little funky lately...Alot going on. But I have been meaning to post my self imposed challenge that I have decide to take on since I started back to work.

The challenge is to not repeat any piece of clothing to work for a month. Why? Because typically most people wear 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time. It's not just me, you do it too. You have a closet full of clothes and only wear a select few that you wash and wear over and over again.

This week I didn't repeat one item of clothing to work, not even shoes. So I am working on the next week. It seems hard but I have gotten creative and really started to dig into the corners and find stuff that I wore long time ago and stopped for no reason.

So, are you down for the challenge? I'll post some pics...later...hopefully:)

The Rules: You may not repeat any items of clothing during the week...for those who are over achievers, don't repeat shoes either. For those of you who are not as bold, you are allowed to repeat shoes. Accessories are allowed to be repeated:)

If a month is a little too ambitious...just do one week and see what you can come up with.
Rediscover your closet!

Remember this Episode of The Cosby Show when Cliff took a CHALL-UNG?!? The good ol' days when all I had to worry about back then was what I was wearing to school and doing homework. Sigh:)



The next challenge: To Work Items in Your Wardrobe that you consider too "dressy". You gotta find a way to wear your clothes! More on that challenge later. I got this idea from this blog.

Example: I have a sequined skirt that I bought from Arden B. years ago. I wore it twice, once to a wedding and once to church. I never wear it because I never have anywhere that special to go but I have been thinking that I should just be bold and rock it to work. I'm a teacher... I can do what I want. I'm thinking of wearing a khaki blazer and a white Tee with it. In theory, it sounds cute but I am paranoid to look like I am going to the prom at work...but really who cares...I am never one to follow rules anyway...

More on that challenge later...soon as I drink enough COURAGE JUICE!

Challenge Overall: Do not repeat any outfit for one whole week/month.
Challenge within the challenge:
1. Wear something you consider too dressy.
2. Mix patterns (especially if it is something you never would do:)
3. Wear something out of your comfort zone.

More to come....Shoot me pictures of your outfit (godsfavoriteshoes@yahoo.com) if you take any of these challenges and you could be featured on my next post:)

Pretty sure that The Cosby Show is still my most favorite show EVER! Boy, that's some challenge, too. I don't know if I can do it, but I'm going to try!

I'll have to try it when we get to NJ. It will be especially challenging since I'm not a typical working-girl anymore.

I might try this challenge next week (for a week).

I did a 50 days and 50 outfits challenge, but I could repeat the items of clothing.. however since I was planning on a Sunday I'd not wear the same clothes over the week anyway. Don't think I could do it for a month though.. possibly don't have enough "bottoms".

As for a sequined skirt.. could it be worn as a sequinned strapless top at all?

Thanks for visiting my blog! I love finding new names to add to my blog list.. and you're now on it :)
