The Six Piece Wardrobe Style Challenge – Day Five, The Finale!

Posted in Daily Outfits.

So here we are – the end. Well, kind of. I do realise that five days does not a full week make, but the weekend is a sacred time, reserved for slouching about in nothing more than jeans and a jumper. So there.

I’ve really enjoyed my challenge, but I seriously cannot wait to regain full use of my wardrobe! Having such a small sample of clothing has been tough, especially when I’m faced with racks of patterns, prints, styles and shapes every morning. But doing this has made me realise how much surplus stock I have in my over-stuffed space. This weekend will definitely be dedicated to a closet clear-out!

Do you have a favourite look of the challenge? Here’s a refresher of the week’s outfits – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

PS – Oh yeah, I’ve had a radical hair make over. No biggie!

I had my hair chopped and changed at Cutting Room Creative in Chapel Allerton and I’m delighted with the results! I posted a sneaky Twitpic on Twitter last night and received the most wonderful replies from my Twit family, who compared me (quite insanely, I feel) to Mia Farrow, Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson and Ginnifer Goodwin (my original hairspiration). They’ve clearly taken leave of their senses, but how grateful I am for their kind words.

The hair is perfectly timed as tonight I’m shimmying on down (or up, rather) to Leeds’s Sky Lounge for a night of fire-themed celebration with the darling Aussie girls and my fellow Angels. I’ll be debuting the hair and have a quick question for you – shall I spike it up or smooth it down? Leave your answers below!

Jen your hair is absolutley amazing. In the best possible way it looks like it’s always been that way (by that I mean the change suits you perfectly).

Congrats on the six piece challenge too! x

I’m completely in awe of your ability to only wear 6 pieces of clothing for 5 days. I’m hard pushed to keep the same personality (clothes wise) for more than a couple of days, never mind items. I loved day 4, that leather skirt truly was made for you, I’m still on the hunt for my perfect one.

So glad to have found your blog, it’s lovely here =)

This hairstyle suits you so much. I liked your blonde hair but am always bias towards a brunette do (as I long live one). I always think a new hair do can do no end for a girls confidence and body image too, this is a perfect change!

This challenge has been fascinating, as you may have already guessed, for me yesterdays outfit was my favourite! xx

I adore your hair, Jen! Not that I didn’t like it before but this has added depth and texture and it just looks so sophisticated. All your clothes will take on a whole new look now.
Thanks for the challenge, it’s been fab. xxx

I’ve already said this but… I LOVE THE HAIR. A lot. Seriously, so gorgeous. The warm brown makes me feel so wintery and the cut suits you to perfection. Very good call on going darker. Wear it like this tonight! xx

I really love your hair, that colour really suits you. Not many ladies could pull off a crop that fine but you definitely can, it shows off your lovely bone structure.

I love that jacket, it looks so snug. I keep trying on faux fur coats but they don’t suit me, heartbreaking!
