A Challenge For February

So, I've often talked about my love for the website Polyvore. Any ounce of style I now have I credit it to this site. It's made me very aware of what I own, how I wear it, and how I could wear it.

Over the past six months, I've added over 90% of my closet to their online one and I've managed to accumulate 36 outfits that are as close as I'll ever get to perfection and actually being stylish. And as I reviewed them, I realized that, as much as I love the outfits I've created, I've worn most of them once, ONCE, and then continue to look schlubby. As I sit here and type this, I honestly look schlubby! How did this happen?

Anyway, as a remedy, for the month of February, every day I will wear one of my created outfits and document it (and with the leap year, I'll have a couple of outfits to spare). Since the range of my outfits is everything from date night to work wear to running errands, I should be ok as long as I give this some forethought and plan properly so I don't end up wearing my best cocktail dress to the grocery store. And I can't promise I'll wear every outfit all day, but I'll at least try to wear it long enough to leave the house in it.

No decision yet if I'll post pics of myself in the outfits, but we'll see how it goes and how much the husband makes fun of me when he takes my pictures (seriously, I have so many pictures where I'm running at the camera, trying to get him to stop taking pictures).

  1. Schlubby. What a great word. I think I'm going to work that into conversation today :)
