A Year in Review – Day 16
A Bombshell dress I got from Mod Cloth! I wore it once during my Bombshell month (out to dinner with friends) and completely forgot to take a picture of myself in it — which is okay because it didn’t really fit me correctly. The website said that the dress runs small so buy a size up, so I bought a large — which in fact, was too large. I’m guessing in reality this dress is a size 8 or 10. And it’s soooo cute — perfect for a New Years Eve party.
What constitutes a “base” wardrobe?
During “A year in review”, I’ve been trying to pick out some clothes that I’d like to wear in January when my style experiment is officially over and I have to dress for myself again. It’s been fascinating because I feel like I’ve been in a “fashion rehabilitation” facility and now I’m being released into the fashion wild. Can I find clothes for myself? Will I remember the skills I’ve been taught so I can survive in the fashion world on my own?
It’s anyone’s guess at this point…
So I’m looking for a few basic pieces — and from those basic pieces I can start building a fabulous new wardrobe (the style of which I will reveal December 31st.) What do you suggest I get? How many pants? Shirts? Sweaters? A Jacket? Dresses? A skirt? And what about shoes? Will two pairs of shoes cover it? I don’t want to get crazy — I just need to know how to make a weeks worth of clothes out of some basics. I think that would be a really great way to start acquiring a new set of fashion skills — how to mix and match and create outfits. So any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! You have until tomorrow night. As always, my kids pick the winner. Good luck!
