So, today marks the day that I'm about to start something crazy. Something completely and utterly nuts-o, challenging in every way, may even get my mind all twisted & turned about the way things are. Have I got you curious yet? Well, here goes (drum rolllllll, please!): I'm participating in six items or less: a global experiment examining the power of what we don't wear. SIOL (as the cool kids call it) is where you take six (ecchh'em, yes I said only SIX) items of clothing from your wardrobe and pledge to wear only those items for a month. Experiences that nutty participants like myself have during these 30 days will be tracked on the SIOL website, and I also have my friend Kate who's doing this fashion challenge with me, phhew! You can read more about the experiment here.
And so, here are my chosen six items:
1) black & white striped blouse
2) red & white striped tee
3) mustard yellow cardi
4) basic black trousers
5) skinny grey jeans
6) classic black dress
These six new best friends of mine can luckily be paired with ANY shoes, scarves, jewelry, hats, and any other accessories I have stored up in my closet--and workout clothes and coats don't count. I've already warned my co-workers about the experiment (just in case they get suspicious that I've turned into a homeless girl or somethin'!). If you wanna join in this fun lil' fashion challenge, it's not too late to join in on six items or less, or you can follow my Twitter, or the SIOL Twitter page. I'll also be a'bloggin' about my 6-only fashion woes right here on holly in heels!
Bottom line, it'll be pretty darned interesting to see how I feel after getting creative with outfits & accessories for this long. Here goes nothin'!
