Take The Challenge! 28 Days Using Only 10 Items!!!

Yes, it can be done. I recently posted photos of my 28 outfits I created using only 10 items from my closet. 

Give it a try. You'll be surprised at your results. For one, you'll find you are more creative than you thought, and secondly, you'll clearly see what's missing from your wardrobe and why you continue to purchase clothes...and yet still say, "I have NOTHING to wear"!  

It's a life changing experience...I know, I know...that sounds like an over-stretch, but really it will change how you think about your clothes forever!

Take this 28 outfits w/ only 10 items style challenge and see what happens! 

Here's what a few of our MissusSmartyPants SYSters are saying: 

Dawn: I have had an incredibly fun day with the 10 Items 28 Ways Article. I took this on as a style challenge and have come up with many new outfits. One skirt I have for years thought of as a key item in my wardrobe is now going away because no matter what I tried it on with it just looked frumpy. It is a full skirt of a lightweight fabric that is fully lined and is several inches below my knees...talk about trying to hide in your clothes...yup this skirt was that crutch for me...it's sooo comfy my old fashion ignorant self used to say. Not only am I getting rid of a fashion loser, I've discovered a navy blue knee length tulip skirt is my real fashion friend (I'm a body Type E). So off I go to pick my 28 favs out of the dozens of outfits I've come up with using the 10 Items 28 ways challenge.

I might do this as a project for myself tomorrow on my day off! It's interesting how doing this made you realize what does NOT work with the rest of your wardrobe, and I think I need that lesson. I'm glad you had success--what ten items did you pick? 

Dawn: I picked 1. Denim jacket, 2. Aqua SS v-neck tee, 3. Dk wash straight leg jeans, 4. Teal peplum open front cardi, 5. Lt blue v-neck linen pleated skirt dress, 6. French blue princess seam 3/4 sleeve shirt, 7. Multi blue abstract floral v-neck dressier top 8. Navy Blue textured pencil skirt 9. Navy blue ponte knit pants and 10. navy blue tulip hem skirt. I have lots of accessories in turquoise/aqua, teal, off white and white that play nicely off these items. Best of luck with the challenge! Let me know how it goes!

Now it's your turn to give this challenge a try with your wardrobe...Take a peek at my 28 outfits I created w/ only 10 items. I think you'll be inspired!
