As mentioned last post, I’ve been following Imogen Lamport’s 31 day challenge for the past wee while. As can be imagined, there are 31 separate challenges to complete, during which one is encouraged to do a fair about of introspection to see how each outfit feels etc in order to get to decision on one’s preferred style. It’s fun and quite interesting.
In lieu of having anywhere better to document the results, I am going to do so here.
Please do feel free to scroll to the next blog post – I am confident this will be far less interesting to anyone other than me!
|Playing with accessories and styles|
|Playing with lippy - too dark!|
|Playing with colours, textures and fun - in an entirely self made outfit to boot!|
|Playing with textures and patterns - again in an entirely self-made outfit. |
That really brings me joy!
I am half way through the challenges and my conclusions so far are thus:
Feelings repeated on successful outfits:
Fun Glamorous Quirky Feminine Classic Elegant Great fit Well made
Feelings repeated on less/unsuccessful outfits:
Safe Boring Commonplace Young Dull Comfortable Fussy
Wardrobe gaps identified:
1. A casual jersey (or two) preferably one light (off-white?) and one dark (navy?)
2. Medium to Light toned skirt – light grey?
3. Denim skirt with an interesting cut
4. Warm winter coat in a striking style or colour
Things to donate/refashion:
Only one; a cream jersey with cowl neck and short sleeves – which could be refashioned to answer 1 above.
Curious to see what the next challenges bring!
