I’ve been participating in a 10 day fashion challenge over at Freckles in April’s blog. Each day she gives us a prompt and we use that to build our outfit around.
Day 1: Layering
I’m not big on layering. Let me say this plainly- bigger girls don’t look to add padding. Plus, I mostly wear dresses so the whole layering a t-shirt with a button up shirt with a sweater thing wasn’t going to work for me as I don’t have a lot of that in my wardrobe. (Dress: Target, Belt: Target, Vest: Thrifted, Tights: Unknown, Boots, DSW, Awesomeness: All Me (JK))
Day 2: Monochromatic
I went with shades of purple/fuchsia for this challenge because I own a lot of bold colored clothing. I think it suits my personality. (Dress: Target, Tights: Lane Bryant, Scarf: Old Navy, Coat: Thrifted, Boots: The Avenue)
Day 3: Embrace a Trend
For as much as I love fashion, I am not a trend follower. I had to look up what the current trends were to see if I had anything that could suffice. I ended up with metallic shoes, an animal print sweater and an orange scarf (which my research said were all current trends). I needed something easy to change in and out of since I had yoga at lunch and dance after work. (Sweater: Target, Trouser Jeans: Lane Bryant, Scarf: Gifted, Shoes: Unknown)
Day 4: Channel Someone
I was worried about this challenge. I’m not really big on emulating other people’s looks but then I remembered I had this pencil skirt just hanging in my closet and a new pair of blue heels. I channeled Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame. I think she is super sexy. I love how she embraces her curves. Ba-bang! (Confession: I haven’t watched any episodes of Mad Men yet.) (Skirt: Target (old school), Heels: Steve Madden, Sweater: Thrifted)
This challenge made me want to buy a new red lipstick and tighter clothes.
Day 5: Mix Patterns
I confess- I wear this outfit a lot. It’s very comfortable and is my go to outfit when I can’t figure out what to wear. I really need to get some new clothes because this dress has pockets that are ripping. (Dress: Old Navy, Sweater: Target, Boots: Target, Belt: Thrifted, Scarf: Old Navy Earrings: a gift from Mr. Darcy from Etsy)
This post is apparently brought to you by Target since the majority of my clothes seem to be from there.
