I have an obsession with jeans, (I think it is an American epidemic), I live in them. And for someone who makes clothes, sell clothes and loves fashion, I wonder if I am representing myself as such. Sure, I'll funk it up with feather earrings, cowboy boots, legwarmers etc., but for the most part, I wake up and throw on my favorite jeans, a sweatshirt and run out the door. In my defense, it is cold here in Northern California (in the winter), and I am pretty much taking my kids to school and coming home to work. Not a big need to dress up. But, I am a clothing designer, not a college student. Time to step it up.
My poor neglected closet. I have an INSANE closet. FULL of amazing dresses, skirts and vintage everything. But they never get worn. I am starting to feel guilty.
SO... my idea was to do a 5 day no jeans challenge. Starting Monday (my kids are home sick this week), I will wake up and put on an outfit that does not include jeans. I plan on wearing dresses with tights, skirts with boots, and the occasional polyester bell-bottom. I am not trying to win a fashion award, I am just putting myself to a personal fashion challenge. I also plan on posting a pic of each outfit so you can see how I'm doing. I'm pretty sure I have convinced my best-friend to do the same, so maybe we can inspire some others.
