Going into week three now: that means we're almost halfway through!
As promised last week, I'll be going into the outftis this time: one particularly observant corionauta asked me about the numbers on the "Six Items" doodle I posted on last week's update. This was basically a calculation based on Daria Andronescu's "Wonder Wardrobe" of how many outfits I needed for the six weeks. By taking into account the amount of work and going out combinations I would need and the amount of times I would gladly re-wear an outfit, the grand total came to 14. Fourteen. That's it!
As an aside, I should also say that even with how versatile the pieces are and the fun I'm having with combining them, I repeated the same outfit three times in a row last week (the romper and white Converse) for three distinctly different occasions. I just changed jackets and honestly, it made a huge difference. Thankfully I love, and am still enjoying, wearing these items.
So without further ado, here are the outfits! I didn't style or picture every outfit possible, I just thought I'd show you the more distinctive combinations. Despite that, there are over 14 outfits here, which is what I need for the whole six-week period! Going through the slideshows, I've counted 16 combinations from the actual items alone. Bear in mind that I used the same pair of shoes, earrings and watch throughout, but that just donning a different jacket could make a new, distinctive outfit using the same elements.
First, let's take a look at some of the simpler outfits, created by using the items as is: the romper, the dress and the white T-shirt together with the trousers. This also shows why I picked these items in a way: a) the colours are the ones I wear the most and b) because I enjoy simple. monochromatic outfits. Click on the gallery to see the pictures up close.
And now...the combinations! Let's look at examples with comments I made in the second of these updates last week. I had said that the romper had often been mistaken for black trousers when I wore it with a sweater on top, so I decided to embrace that in this challenge and just began wearing the tops over it.
Now for the dress: I can use it as a top and a skirt, which I love. Like the romper acting as trousers, it almost feels like a cute little fashion secret. I could also use it as a vest, which I honestly haven't tried yet because I don't tend to wear vests, but actually quite like how it looks!
I also mentioned that I could use the graphic tee back to front to get a plain white one...here's me in all white and some more cool combinations with the white trousers (did I mention how much I love the fit of these?).
Let's end with one by surprise: I'll admit that I squealed when I realised I could wear the white trousers on top of the romper!
What did you think?
What six items would you choose and how
would you mix and match them?
