I am happy to announce that yet again the “yes” outfits dramatically outnumbered the “no” ones! Sometimes it’s a bit of an effort to keep up with this blog – I’ve worn something different every single day for over two months now. And not every outfit is great, but when I look back over a month and see quite a few that I love then it does make it feel worthwhile.
Something that struck me when reflecting on October’s outfits is one wear is all that’s required to take something from “a bit confronting” to “normal”. For example, some of the bright colour combinations I’ve tried have seemed a bit crazy to me the first time around (pink/red, red/purple, purple/teal), but afterwards I’ve used them again without a second thought. And when it came to reviewing the outfits they didn’t seem even remotely unusual to me.
(Note: this applies to “a bit” confronting, not “very” confronting like my Breakfast at Tiffany’s dare outfit!)
Least Favourite Outfits
|This one just didn’t come together, for reasons I’ve documented at length in the original post. I did however take the opportunity to fix it here.|
|I really like the colour combination, but for me the proportions are all wrong. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do with this cropped jacket – perhaps it just needs to be balanced out with a dress rather than a separate top and bottom. I’ll give it another chance.|
|It became obvious to me that this skirt was due for retirement – I just couldn’t feel at home in it. Sometimes you just have to accept it’s time to say goodbye.|
|It’s just a bit “blah”. (Apart from the owl necklace. And the cute shoes.) The colours aren’t interesting together, the styles aren’t complementing each other. It’s not an outfit worth “fixing” as such; it’s just nothing to get excited about. Never mind.|
And that was October 2012, thanks for looking :)
