Do you ever get in a style rut? Or do you look in your closet, and to anyone else, it seems full, but to you there is nothing to wear? I have had a love hate relationship with my clothes for the past year. Since we have been in lockdown, had limited options for going out, and the consequent change of lifestyle, my sewing machine is getting dusty and I have resorted to shorts and Tee shirts everyday (that I am home, that is). Something is going to change!
Several years ago I read about a woman who wore the same dress for a year. She actually had two identical dresses so that she could wear one while the other was washing. She blogged about her experience every day. It was fascinating to me and I've never forgotten it. I've tried to find her blog again, but have not been successful. She wore a brown denim sleeveless (I think) dress that buttoned down the front. I believe it had a collar. Anyway, fast forward to today.
Wool & issued a challenge a couple of years ago and a few women were lucky enough to receive a dress for free if they promised to wear it every day for 100 days. That particular challenge is over, but they have a new challenge that is almost as good. Purchase a dress, wear it for 100 days, and get $100 off your next purchase. $100 is a great incentive, but for me, it is more a question of "How many ways can I style this dress so that I don't get sick of it?" There are a lot of other social, economical, and sustainability reasons to consider this challenge, and I've considered a lot of them. I have some other wool tops that I love from another company called WoolX and I have worn them many times. They can be worn multiple times without laundering, which is great for travel.
The dress I chose is the Sierra Tank dress. I would love to have gotten the redwood color, but they are not available at this time. I love some of the longer sleeve dresses, but the reality is, we are still in 100+ degree weather here - so no long sleeves! This color of green goes with almost every other thing in my wardrobe, so let's see how I do!
